TIME OUT #62 Reminder

We are continuing our Home Sweet Home photo inspiration challenge at Time Out.  How will this photo inspire you?

Our fabulous guest designer, Stephanie from My Ink Well is with us again this week - so make sure you stop by her blog to check out her beautiful designs (she is an expert with Brushos!).

Last week, my card was crisp and modern inspired by the artwork - this week, I took my inspiration from the vintage lamps. The shapes of the shades reminded me of flowers, and the way they were clustered made me think of this poppy stamp from Hero Arts:

I coloured the stamped image with Copics - trying to use the same colours as the photo. I added some Wink of Stella shimmer to the coloured blooms and stamped the SSS greeting to overlap them slightly. I challenged myself to use some coloured card stock for the mat and the card base (something that I don't do too often), and mounted the panel in the top left corner to do something different. 

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. I like how you took inspiration from the lamps and your colouring is superb. And you should you coloured card bases more often it worked well for you and especially your design.

  2. Hello Jill!!!! This card is GORGEOUS! I can certainly see why the cluster of lamps brings this fabulous floral image to mind. Your coloring is superb! It's been fun working with the TO DT this week!!! Thanks for your hospitality!!!!

  3. Great to see such dufferent inspiration as last week! Love the colouring! Hugs, Gerrina

  4. Just beautiful, Jill ... the colour combo is fabulous ... and your colouring amazing! Hugs, Anita :)
