Today I bring you another entry for Prairie Paperie's Inspiration Challenge, wherein she challenged us to use something in our environment as inspiration for a card. My card:
...which was inspired by this photograph, sent to me by a friend who just returned from a visit to Greece*:
This is Oia, Greece, and I lovelovelove the blue doors on those white buildings! I thought I'd stamp a bunch of images of my townhouse row stamp (from Stampendous) and stack them up, but I realized I needed to do a little more than that. First of all, the townhouses have roofs (rooves), so I cut them off:
I still had that pesky gable, so I decided to hack off one floor of that house:
... and in the end, after futzing with the spacing, I also cut out all the spaces between the buildings, then I put them together kindof like a puzzle:
I also sponged some clouds to make it less "white". I think I'll make another one and try sponging some green at the bottom to ground it a little more. (I said "ground" it ... I crack myself up sometimes.)
So take a look around, get inspired, and come play with us!
Thanks for stopping by!
* Okay, I know Greece is not in my environment, or even on my continent, but it was on my computer screen, which is in my condo, which IS my environment, so I say it passes that test.
