StampTV CSS Inspiration Blog Hop

Welcome to this month's StampTV CSS blog hop.  This is an inspiration hop.  If you've come here from the talented  Geri's Blog, you're in the right place.  If not, you might want to go back to the beginning so you don't miss any fabulous creations. 

The inspiration came from the uber talented Karen Knegten who gave us this photo for our inspiration. 


I just love this photo.  Great inspiration, Karen. 


My eye went to the windows.  I imagined what one might see from the other side of one of them.  I love the colors and the light and the blocks of buildings and their texture.  I used CB folders to achieve the texture and Spellbinder labels to give my focal image dimension. 

Supplies:  GKD PL CS white, pumpkin spice and wild dandelion.  Stamps are GKD Stamp Kit "Enjoy the Sunshine".  Memento inks and Copic Markers were used to color the image and back ground.  Window die is from Memory Box "Small Madison Window" 
Hop on over to Brenda's blog for even more stunning inspiration. 

Hop along and leave a comment on each blog and you'll be entered to win a huge grab bag full of GKD Stamps.  The winner will be annouced on the StampTV Forum Tuesday, February 14, 2012.  Good luck and thanks so much for stopping by. 

Play along and create a card or project using Karen's fabulous inspiration photo and post it to the thread in the forum.  We love it when you play along with us. 

This card is also being added to the Mix It Up Monday Challege STV12MON3 at StampTV.
