Inspiration Station Challenge #4

Hello and Happy Monday! Today begins a new fortnightly challenge at Inspiration Station and challenges are based on your interpretation of an inspiration photo.  The photo this challenge is:


For my design team project, I was inspired by the couple in the photo and the love they seem to share.  I used the Gina K. Designs "Watt's Up" Mini Stamp set, which is a new set to me and this was it's maiden voyage so to speak.  This was an incentive set at the last release and may be made available once she releases a new kit the end of April 2021.  



I inked a small portion of the background with Squeezed Lemonade Distress Oxide Ink, splattered some water for effect, stamped the image with sentiment and heat embossed all.  The only bells and whistles used were sequins for sparkle. The stamp  does not include the doodled electrical cording, I hand drew that in to tie the light bulbs together.  

Please join us this round at Inspiration Station.  We would love to see how the photo inspires you!  Until next time, Happy Crafting!

Donna
