Inkspirational - Photo Inspiration Challenge

Happy Saturday everyone!  We are planning to go to an auction today.  We love checking out auctions around our area as you can find a lot of cool antiques.  Sometimes we get lucky and the prices are good.  Sometimes we walk away with almost nothing.  It's fun though.  Anyway, today is the start of another Inkspirational challenge!  We've got an inspiration picture for you this time.  Check it out...

Doesn't that look like a lovely fall day?  I really loved the look and colours of the trees.  Its what inspired my card.  Take a look...

First, I inked up my birch trees (Clearly Besotted) with SSS sea glass in and then added a bit of teal zeal Memento ink and stamped across my panel.  I stamped with just the sea glass ink in the spaces in between next.  I lightly sponged a little bit of sea glass ink and spiced marmalade Distress ink in the white spaces between the trees.  Then, using the same colours (but watered down) I splattered over top of everything.  I matted my panel in a rusty orange and attached to my card base.  I stamped the sentiment (Clearly Besotted) in dove gray (StazOn) ink.  Really love the soft blue with the orange on this card.

Hope you'll be able to play along with us for this challenge.  You should check out the other DT girls projects too.  As usual, they are all amazing!  We have a fabulous Guest Designer too.  Jen of Magic Flying Boots.  She's created a fantastic card to inspire you.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you all have a marvelous day!

I'd link to link up to the following challenges:

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - no designer paper
Uniko Studio - fall/autumn with optional twist of thanks ( I opted out of the twist this time)


  1. I really like you went with the blue trees. I hadn't picked up on this until I saw your card. Isn't great how we see something so different in photos, that is why photo challenges are my favourite. Have fun at the auction X

  2. Kim, your birch trees scene is stunning - a place I'd like to stroll through on a fall day! The blues/yellows are gorgeous...Love this!!

  3. I love the way you used ink here, Kim! Very inspiring. I hope you found something fun from the auction! xxx

  4. Wow, your trees are gorgeous! I'm a bit obsessed with birch trees at the moment, so went a bit mad when I saw your card. What a lovely stamp! And I really love the colours you've used!

  5. I think you are really talented at stamping a natural look - I would never have thought of stamping these trees in that colour and yet it looks perfect!

  6. Great design! I like the tree panel off centered on the card panel. Those aspen trees look fantastic! I like that you chose to use blue and orange. Unique color choices with a wonderful outcome!

    Also, you may check your link from the Ink page. When I used it the blog post was not visible.


  7. Wow! you totally rocked the inspiration image :)
