Team 2 is up this week with the very first Picture Perfect Paper Smooches Challenge. We have a fantastic inspiration photo that will be sure to get your creative mojo flowing! I know it sparked some ideas for me. Here is how I interpreted the photo. It was funny but all I kept seeing was the stunning color of the piano and how it reminded me of the ocean. The floor beneath the piano was even the color of sand—in my mind. Then I began seeing the decorative plates hanging on the wall as bubbles in the ocean. So that’s when I grabbed my Surf and Turf and Whirligigs stamp sets by PS. I quickly sketched out an underwater scene and then began stamping away.
I had the idea to make this card into an encouragement card so I could enter it into the Paper Crafts Gallery Idol 2012 Challenge. So I looked through my PS sentiment stamps and saw a few possibilities but settled on “I Look Up to You” from the Zoo Crew stamp set because I wanted the cute little crab at the bottom of the ocean to be praising the sweet little goldfish. Maybe he’s proud of the little goldfish or the little goldfish is feeling discouraged and the cute little crab wants her to know he idolizes her. You can make up your own scenario. I think a card like this would fit many circumstances where you might want to encourage someone in your life.
Wow, that was a long post if you’ve made it this far please go a little further and stop by the other Sparks Designers blogs. Check out the awesome creations they have to share with you today!
