Paperbabe Stamps Challenge #81 ~ Picture Inspiration

Good Morning, thanks for visiting today,
Summer hols is well in swing, only a week left for my Ds...
We have a lovely Picture inspiration...for this fortnight's challenge #81:

So, create anything inspired by the picture... 
I thought the colour palette and rocks on the beach would be fun to use.

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

Check out the Team's inspiring projects...


Lozzy has created her mixed media piece by using 2 of the stencils from the Mixed Media Polka Dots Stencil set. The chains along the top and side are from the Bottle Of Stamp Set also the sentiment stamps are from that set to. Then used the splat stamps from the Watercolour Alphabet Stamp Set along with embossing powders.


Terri created a mixed media page using the colours in the inspiration picture to work with. She use distress oxides to create a background for her potion bottles. Using the bottle of stamps Terri stamped 3 bottles, she added texture to the  background with the Checkerboard stencil

Tracey has been inspired by the colours within the picture challenge and created a doodle book. Both *NEW* Paperbabe stamp sets Isometric Fun and Like Clockwork have helped embellish the book cover along side the Spritz and Speckle stamp set. Words from the Just because stamp set encourage from front to the back.

Beata made brown Angel used Paperangel Fibreboard Substrates and Stamp Set Kit. Coloured by watercolors and white pen. White splash and sign to finish it:)

Delphine used a pebble and went for rock painting. She put gesso first, then stamped a fox from the Whimsical Woodland Set 1 in Pumpkin Stazon and Sepia Archival Inks. She then painted her rock using acrylic paint (mostly Fresco Paints) and added a few details in Posca Pens and a little heart from the Whimsical Woodland Set 1 too.

Kim was inspired by both the picture of the cairns and the earthy colours... she experimented with the gelli plate using polka dot and herringbone stencils. She felt the sentiment sums up the balancing of the rocks perfectly.
