Greetings from Seattle | Inspired by Challenge - Colors of Fall

 



Welcome to another new Inspired by Challenge!  There is also an optional sketch challenge:


Here's how I was inspired:


I took four of the five colors in the inspiration photo and designed them in a loose interpretation of the sketch.  My base is Reverse Confetti Stone and then the strips of cardstock from left to right are:

Stampin' Up:
Petal Pink
Blushing Bride
Soft Sea Foam
Pistachio Pudding [retired]

The Seattle Skyline die is by Impress.  It has been cut from Reverse Confetti Stone.


The sentiment is vintage A Muse woodmount.  With the skyline die being solid, I needed to stamp the sentiment onto that die cut after I ran it through the Gemini Jr.  That's when the trusty Stamp-a-ma-jig came in handy to line up the sentiment.  I'll be honest, I tend to eyeball a lot but I just can't eyeball woodmounts.


I can't wait to see how my other teamies were inspired, please check out the Inspired by Challenge Blog!
