Just Add Ink #53 - An Inspiration Challenge

Decided to participate in this week's JAI Challenge # 53

We are throwing a new challenge into the mix - an inspiration challenge! Take a look at our beautiful picture, take inspiration from it (e.g. from this photo you could take the colours, or flowers, or just something that makes you happy!) and we'd love you to tell us in your link how the picture inspired you.

Here's the inspiration photo - click on it to visit JAI's challenge blog:

Just add ink inspiration challenge

Seeing the bright sunflower made me think of a yellow & Black Card instantly. It seen summery too & I thought this stamp named Bumblebee would suit perfectly.

So here's my entry/creation:


BumbleBee Front


BumbleBee Side

Front closed so you can see that the front layer is narrower that the back & the greeting is actually stamped on the the side of the back layer.

Then as I went back to get the inspiration pic to add here I realised that under it the JAI team have added

When we gave the Design Team the brief for this challenge, we called it a Bright Burst of Colour (basically like naming the photo), so when you visit the Design Team blogs, you might find that's what they've called the challenge. It is the same challenge! Your entry can be inspired by the photo in any way, whether it includes a flower or not. Hope this clears up any confusion!

Now I hope to come up with another entry that better suits the challenge before the Linky is closed.
