For Your Inspiration #35

Once again, Step amazed me with the gorgeous photo she found

Is this a beautiful church or what?  Love the turquoise!  I thought I had some mirror paper in that color, but apparently... not. I did however have gold and navy blue, so I used those.

The biggest problem?  This mirror paper is a real bitch to photograph.!  I gave up after 4 times - this is it.  I ordered the Fancy Flourish die cuts from Papertrey, and the 2 squares of color are paint chips!  I love that!

Inspired by the photo?  Come on over to For Your Inspiration and play along [check out the DT's samples while you are there too].  We would love to see how the photo inspires you.

Thanks for stopping by~

Gorgeous, and inspired. What an absolutely stunning inspiration photo. I love your "take" on it, so clean, simple and elegant. I know what you mean about the pic losing the sheen, but knowing its there you can imagine. Imagine its great!! Love the recycling paint chip idea, how clever are you? That's why I have to come to your blog, you always amaze me! Well done. AnnaJernigan(no blog)

I think paint chips open up a whole world of possibilities to us crafters! I have a drawer full of 'em. :)

This mirror paper is super cool!


A super take on the photo Vicki - lovin' the paint chips! Metallics can be sooooo difficult to photograph, but look awesome IRL, and they look awesome on your card too - great photography!

Have a happy weekend - Sylvia x
