I love fashion, I love design and I love taking inspiration for the latest trends for my papercrafting projects.
For today's Inspiration and Themes Challenge over on In Love With Stamping I chose this picture from the current Boden catalogue. Oh yep, and I love Boden too! Such wonderful colours and fantastic design detail - always a great source of inspiration for stamping.... and a great way to use your credit card too ;)
I'm loving the grey and yellow combinations we're seeing so much this season so I chose the dress on the left for my inspiration.
I used Going Grey and So Saffron and aren't they just fabulous together!! The stamp set is Soft Summer in the new Mini catalogue, and I love it. I stamped the Polka Dot backgrounder with Grey ink on the So Saffron base layer, then coloured the image with Copic markers.
The sentiment is one of the Circle of Friendship stamps, with part of the side cut off. The white vertical strip is punched with the spiral punch.
Ok, that's it for me - I have some choc-chip ice cream and some Sex and The City episodes to kick back with, still love those gals (and New York....sigh!)
Thanks for stopping by!
