Paperbabe Stamps Challenge #40 ~ Picture Inspiration

Good Morning wonderful crafters, it's Friday again and we're ready to introduce this week's inspirational challenge with you. I hope you enjoyed the challenge last fortnight and can find some time to join us this week, we love having you play along.

So for challenge #40 it's...

Picture inspiration...

I couldn't resist this adorable scene after all the gorgeous woodland themed stuff we've been creating lately with July's release..

So, create anything, use the picture or colours to inspire you, it could be the image or woody natural colours, create any art your imagination takes you and have FUN!

Paperbabe Challenges are open to everyone...
As usual you are welcome to combine with other challenges.

Please be sure to link your project below for a chance to win Paperbabe Stamps Gift worth up to £20*.

Now lets see the team's interpretation...
their gorgeous projects are sure to inspire you!

Kim created a small layered card, the background was a simple heat embossing through the polka dot stencil, the shroom scene was a bit of stamping and masking using the Whimsical woodland set 4 and Whimsical Woodland set 3. Finished off with a little gold paint on the smile word substrate.

Terri has created a cute card using the MayLeeDee Little Red clear stamp. She stamped and coloured MayLeeDee and added an inky scenic background. She then used the Whimsical Woodland Butterfly stamp set to add ferns leaves and the Whimsical Woodland bunny stamp set to add Toadstools, giving the impression that MayLeeDee is out foraging.

Chris used one of her all time favourite Paperbabe stamps, MayLeeDee Kimono and enjoyed making a little woodland scene around her by masking her with sweet stamps from Whimsical Woodlands stamp set 3 (Bunny) and Whimsical Woodlands Stamp Set 4 (Butterfly). I also coloured a little fibreboard mushroom from the Whimsical Woodland Fibreboard Substrate kit as an embellishment.

Delphine created another scene using Whimsical Woodland Stamp Set 2 (leaves), Whimsical Woodland Stamp Set 3 (squirrel, mushrooms) and Whimsical Woodland Stamp set 4 (bird, mushroom, fern). She stamped her elements in Memento Luxe and Versafine inks and coloured everything using Zig watercolour pens.
