Jazzy Inspirations & Etsy too....


Good Saturday Morning Everyone!It's time for another Etsy challenge and what a nice shop we have for you this week. It's called Tony Carlisle's Photo Gallery and he has a nice collection of photos/inspiration to get the creative juices flowing. He's giving the winner an 8x10 print of their choice so be sure and join us for the chance to win! Visit the above shop, pick your inspiration, make your creation and link it to Ashley's blog.

I chose the pic posted above and decided to focus on the green from the leaves and added my fave shade of blue. I really like the end result & hope you do too!! Be sure and check out the rest of the Design Team & leave them some love!!

This next card is for Jazzy Inspirations and the challenge was to use Orange, Red, Black, White & Yellow. I compromised by using Riding Hood Red because it reminds me of the orange/red combo...through in the other colors and voila---finished card! My main image is stamped in bleach and I think it created the coolest effect on this cardstock. It feels really good to know that your basic techniqes can still make a nice card! Be sure and check out the Jazzy blog for the DT call and to link up your creations for the chance to be the Jazz Cat of the week!

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great rest of the day!TTFN,
Hugs,
