Dottie's World Challenge - Inspirational

Good morning!

It's been an exciting weekend for me this weekend. Like many of you i'll bet, my new stamps of Annie arrived and isn't she is adorable? That was my first bit of excitement, Lol.

The second was being asked to be this month's guest designer on Dottie's World!!!(Thank you so much for asking me).

Anyway enough of me dancing round the room..

This week's challenge was set by Lou and it's an inspirational, dreamy, photo.

Take whatever element inspires you from the photograph, it could be all the colours, just one of the colours, the swirls or even the see through nature of it, there’s no rules really, just see what it inspires you to do. Oh and one of the downloads of course!
If you are anything like me you will be tying yourself up in knots with the endless possiblities, it's a fantastic photo.

Here is what I eventually made from it...

I used my Tim Holtz alcohol inks with blender solution onto glossy photo paper , for Dottie's painted wall. Dottie herself was coloured with copics and the backing paper is K&Co. I used my robo for the tag to write the sentiment, added a few ribbons and punched mirri board corners. That's it done!

Both the digi stamps and the Annie (delectable) rubber stamps are available from Charmed Cards And Crafts, nip over now and take a look.

TFL, take care
