For Your Inspiration #8

I'm not sure where the time is going at the moment! I suppose the end of term is a busy time with concerts, sports days and final to do lists before we break up. I've not even had the time to photograph some of the things I've been making and giving out as end of year thank you gifts! Although due to a lack of time there have been a lot of gift cards in little seed packet holders similar to these. However, today I do get to show you something as it's time for the next installment of fun from For Your Inspiration! 

When I first saw this photograph I was drawn to so many aspects of the image. The texture of the cliffs, the flow of the water and the shapes of the foreground rocks. I thought of the water flowing over the pattern of moss covered rocks as I made this card.

I used the circle image from Papertrey Ink's grunge me set to represent the rocks and tried to give the impression of them flowing across the page.

A simple popped up sentiment and bingo a card for my husband to give to his Dad on Father's Day (19 June in the UK).

Have a look at the other designers great ideas for this fab photo:

And then why not join in the fun with us!



Stamps - PTI grunge me, trajan monogram
Inks - American Crafts leaf, Versafine spanish moss, Versacolor polar blue
Card - PTI ripe avocado, ocean tides
Dies - PTI skater dude

Lovely Father's day card. Are the Papertrey stamps sent to you from the States? I do like some of their things but haven't found any in the UK. Lizzie

I'm so behind on commenting on this challenge, but wanted to let you know I think this is a fabulous interpretation of Steph's photo! I love the simple, contemporary look you gave this card!
