Photo Inspiration!

(It's another double-post day on my blog!! Scroll up for The Town Scrapper weekly challenge!)

Happy Friday stampers!! It's recital weekend for my daughter!! First show is tonight...I'm helping backstage as one of the "room moms". I think my friend and I are in with the younger ones, so we're packing portable DVD players, movies, colouring pages...lots of stuff to keep them busy until their spotlight time!! We've got a second show tomorrow which I'm watching from the audience, followed by the after party. I can't wait to see Ainsleigh in her ballet number ...and in the mini-production of Mary Poppins! Dean took a bunch of pictures during dress rehearsal...maybe I'll post some next week!

Time for a brand new challenge over at Wags n Whiskers! This week, my fellow guest designer Renata chose a fantastically fun photo to inspire you! For my card, I chose to ink up "Speed Racer"! I coloured the image, as always, with my Copic markers. The little windshield of his car was given a coat of Glossy Accents. (The sentiment is from The Greeting Farm's "My Guy Ian" set.)




Here's a peek at the inspiration photo. The layout of my card is meant to look similar to the arrangement of the candies and I used a lot of the bright bold colours for my image.



I hope you are able to participate in our challenge this week. You must use a Wags n Whiskers image on your project to be eligible for the weekly prize drawing...just link up your project on the WnW blog! Are you in need of some of these fantastic stamps?? You can purchase them HERE. Did you know that some of the WnW stamps are now also available as digital images?? So no excuses stampers!! No need to wait for delivery, or even to leave your house...you can even shop in your jammies if you like!

Don't forget to head on over to the Wags 'n Whiskers blog to see what the rest of the team has made this week!

Blessings!

Wowzer Melanie!! I just love your take on the inspiration, your gorgeous coloring, and your patched square background. This is seriously too cute and my fave card so far using this image.
