Inkspirational Challenge - Umbrella Photo


Our challenge at Inkspirational is to be inspired by this picture:
For my DT card, I stamped a Unity stamp and then scanned the image into my computer. In Silhouette Studio I enlarged it, altered the lines with a sketch effect and added the first part of the sentiment. I printed it, cropped it and coloured it and added die cut letters.

Please come and see us at Inkspirational  - we have a wonderful Guest Designer Rae Ann, not to mention our fabulous DT - and join in our challenge.

I'd like to enter:
Casology  weather
Simon Says Weds  come rain or shine
Just Add Ink  photo umbrella
Use Your Stuff quote (from a Rihanna song)
Deep Ocean  fave colour combo - actually I love any colour teamed with grey.

Oh how pretty is your card? Love the bright colours which just make it pop as well as that umbrella which adds a touch of whimsy to it! Thanks for playing along with us over at UYS - Hugs DT Shirl

Oh I love this Marina ... everything is just perfect from the colours to the sentiment. I've done that once or twice... scanned the image ... I like your thinking!

Mimi said...

Very cool. Your process sounds interesting. Way to go to get the look you wanted!

Never thought to stamp and then scan an image to manipulate it, so thank you for the inspiration. The most gorgeous sketchy feel card, loving the colours and how you've used the stamp. Also love the dimension on the umbrella word, just love it!

I really like this sketch look. I thought it was a single stamp that was like this. Don't really understand the techy side of how you created it but it gives a funky feel to it that I would love to have x

Totally crushing over your 'sketchy', artsy card, Marina! That umbrella steals the show for me...so pretty with the 'loose' colouring...Hope you have a marvelous two weeks' off as well...Nice to be able to have some 'rest and relax' days before the final push of the semester's end - can't believe how time flies, though!

Wow, that silhouette machine sure can do tricks! I don't have one myself, but if/when I go for it I'll know so much already about the possibilities, learning from you:) Cool design, great sentiment and sketchy look!

Great card, Marina. Love your choice of colours, layout & message, plus your manipulation of the original image was really clever. Thanks for joining us at Just Add Ink.
