Digi time!

Welcome to this month’s Print Candee creative team blog hop!!!  I’m excited to kick off this creative hop and our sweet team will point you in the right direction as you hop along.  Today our theme revolves around an inspiration photo.  A really COOL one at that.

Grungy cool right?  So many sources for inspiration… grunge effect, numbers, the colors, masculine, maybe feminine, birthday, anniversary and more.  I can’t wait to see what the other girls have up their sleeves.

I ended up with two cards today.  Here is my first one.

As I was browsing the Print Candee store, I noticed this fabulous flower paper with the perfect colors for the challenge.  I used some grunge brushes to ‘dirty’ it up and to match the inspiration photo.

At the last minute, I had another idea and ran with it.  I recolored the chevron paper to match the photo colors and created the color block strip in Photoshop.

Up next is the fabulous Kalyn.
In case you get lost along the way, here is the full blog hop list.
