Paperbabe Stamps Challenge #48 ~ Picture Inspiration!

Good Morning thanks for joining us, it's Friday, yay and time 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.

Here's a nice happy

Picture inspiration

for challenge #48:


Let the picture inspire you, create anything... use the picture or colours as inspiration as always be sure 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!

To create my card I used the Mini sugar skull stamp set and the "Go where your dreams take you" stamp. I took inspiration from both the flowers and colours and loved being able to use the Sugar Skull stamps for a feminine design. 

Delphine
Delphine used Mayleedee (as red rubber, but she's also available as clear stamp and digi) and added a few flowers to create a scene. She watercoloured her image using Zig Clean Color Real Brush and added a few details in Polychromos.

Kim
Kim had fun creating her dimensional portrait using the wavy central parting media blank and added it to an ornate frame. She was inspired by both the colour palette and the daisy flowers. She used the female face mini stamp set, and the polka dot stencil.

Terri
As it's my birthday today I decided to make a birthday card. I used the Pop dots in the lower half of my card and the candles from the Birthday wishes set in the upper section. The sentiment is also from the Birthday wishes set.  I took my colour inspiration from the packaging of the stamp sets.


Kim
Kim created a mixed media piece, using profile templates long & fringe and Head & Torso along with the mini profile face stamp set. A butterfly sits atop a peony... Kim will upload a video tomorrow to show how she created this and how the butterflies were added.


Delphine
Delphine used one of the gorgeous fairies by Chris called Butterfly Fairy and added a branch, leaves and fern from the Whimsical Woodland Stamp Set 2 and Set 4. The butterfly is from the Butterfly Pieridae Stamp Set. She watercoloured her scene using Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers.

Blog Hop Featuring Chris Dark's New Garden Fairies Collection...

We are very excited to announce a guest artist in the Paperbabe Stamps family and to celebrate we are having a little blog hop...

The very talented Chris Dark has designed a collection of beautiful Garden Fairies Stamps, the Butterfly Catcher, Butterfly Emerges, Butterfly Fairy, and Musical fairy, they are a larger set and each includes a beautiful sentiment.



To add extra fun to our blog hop... we are offering up a prize! 
of the whole garden fairies collection to one lucky winner.

Here are the details:
  • A winner will be chosen at RANDOM from any of the designer's blogs and the PaperbabeStamps Blog to win.
  • Just leave a comment on any of the designer's blogs listed below or the Paperbabe stamps blog for your chance to win! (you do not need to comment on all blogs to qualify but it increases your chances) 
  • Deadline: You have until midnight on Sunday, 2nd April to leave a comment.
  • Please check the Paperbabe Stamps blog on Wednesday, 5th April to see if you are one of our lucky winners.

Here's a sample from me...


I chose the gorgeous Butterfly Emerges stamp for this block art.
I painted the block in acrylics first, then stamped the image in grey ink before painting in acrylics
I then restamped the image in black ink over my painting, this is a bit of a hit and miss exercise as I had to repaint her and attempted this three times lol... you can see in the detail piece that it's slightly off set but I kept with it.
I used the pretty blossom from the Musical Fairy set to add a trail of flowers to the adorable sentiment.


Today, we’ve enlisted some super talented designers to inspire you with ideas on how to use these beautiful new garden fairies! Hop along for lots of fun and inspiration!

Have fun on the HOP!
Enjoy a wonderfully creative day!
