Heart 2 Heart Inspiration Photo Challenge

This week on Heart 2 Heart challenges we want to see what inspires you from this photo. Is it the design, the textures, or the colors?

In this photo, I was intrigued by the leaves, the vintage looking tags and the crystals. Not to mention the wonderful cork texture, which I tried to actually incorporate cork, but did not succeed!

Instead of cork I did some background stamping on Kraft cardstock. Next, I knew that the CTMH Art Philosophy cartridge had the perfect leaf and vine image. After it was cut out I added some Create-a-Shade paint with a bit of green re-inker in it and some glitter. It added the perfect shimmer I needed to match the photo. The tags were simple to cut also and I found little images that worked well for the design. The bird is under a clear plastic sticker which I found at a craft store a few years ago. This was the best way to incorporate that "crystal" type embellishment.

Here is another view.

All products are Close To My Heart except the clear bubble circle thingy ; ) !

Be sure to play along this week at Heart 2 Heart! Thanks for stopping by!

I love the clear bubble thingy - it really looks great and reflects the crystals on the photo. Very nice.
