Paper Smooches SPARKS Challenge 23 Feb - 7 Mar

Today sees the beginning of a new Paper Smooches SPARKS challenge!  I love creating with these stamps and I can't wait until all my new CHA sets get here :)



Here is your inspiration photo for the challenge, another great pick from Kim.



So my inspiration came from the clock and I replicated those stripes for my background using my copics. This is a technique that Nicole from PTI used (second card down). The clock image is from Perpetual Bliss and the sentiment is actually a mix of words from the same set and Word Salad.



I hope you feel inspired and come and join us for this fun challenge.  If you don't have any Paper Smooches stamps, grab one of the free digi stamps here.

You can find all the details of the challenge on the blog, including the fabulous prizes Kim offers and while you are there, be sure to check out the other DT projects too :)

Cheers

Jay Gee

Hi Judith! I have awarded you the Liebster Blog Award on my blog. I'm not sure if you can pass it on from the Jay Gee's Nook Blog, but I wanted to award it to you anyway for the inspiration that you provide through your cards and photos, and for the lovely comments you so often leave me. :-) Michelle.
