Addicted To Stamps And More #310...

Hi! The current challenge at Addicted To Stamps And More is a gorgeous collage.

Feel free to be inspired by any or all the elements here. You can visit the Addicted To Stamps And More blog for more gorgeous inspiration and linking your entries.

I was most struck by the beautiful colours of this pic. Unfortunately, I was really short on time since we were leaving for a brief holiday the very next day. So I dived into my big box of paper scraps and lo and behold! Found the perfect piece of paper! This background was made a long time back by one of the kids when they were playing with distress inks and stamps. Here is the card I made with it.

The background is made by smooshing distress inks. The stamp set is by Itsy Bitsy. I die cut the panel with the Fishtail Banners die by Itsy Bitsy. I brushed some Versamark ink along the sides and heat embossed with gold EP. The sentiment is from the Sweet Cakes stamp set by Simon Says Stamp. I popped up the banner with a strip of foam tape on a teal card base.

I hope you like my card and are inspired to create something beautiful. Looking forward to seeing your take on the photo collage in our gallery.

Entering this card in the following challenge.

I am so thrilled to be entering this challenge this time. I have a huge stash which includes discarded backgrounds and it is always great when I can put it to use!
