Summer Peaches

Happy Wednesday!  It's time for another challenge from The House That Stamps Built.  This week we have a beautiful inspiration photo for you:
Image may contain: sky and ocean
You can either be inspired by the scene in the picture or the color swatches on the side, or maybe both!  That gorgeous peach/coral color in the center really caught my eye, specially since I have a ribbon and card stock from PTI that match it perfectly.  I also love the grays.  So those two colors along with the cream and  little bit of the yellow orange were the inspiration for my card.

And, I thought this beautiful peaches images was perfect for the color scheme.  I stamped the image on the cream card stock and a second time on the melon berry card stock.  Then I colored just the peaches on the colored stock, cut them out and adhered them onto the image I colored on the cream stock.  I thought it would work well as I only have one orange marker, and it worked fabulously!  I hope you will get a chance to play along with us this week, there are so many ways to be inspired by our photo.

Heather this is so gorgeous. I love that you captured the "peachy" color in the scheme...I totally missed it. I nearly grabbed this stamp myself because, like you, I thought it went with the inspiration. Love what you did with it.
