Papertrey Ink Blog Hop!

Today's blog hop with Papertrey Ink is based on a unique challenge theme - to be inspired by cover art of a book or magazine.

I recently received the premiere issue of Click (which I LOVE!!) and so I had the magazine on my desk and decided to go with what I could garner from its cover - see below:

I also tried to incorporate the chalkboard look that Betsy Veldman blogged about yesterday. Check out her post here if you haven't seen it already. I grabbed some new stamps (got them yesterday!) and this is what I created:

 
I started with a white card base and added a section of Ripe Avocado to the lower portion of the card. I stamped with white ink and dabbed some ink around to resemble chalk dust. The Party Popper was die cut and stamped and mounted to the card with foam tape. I chose to use ribbon as the popper tails rather than the stamp or die. The dotted ribbon was too perfect to pass up! After I added some white confetti, I used an orange pencil to go over some of the confetti pieces and the word PARTY. I tried to keep the colors similar to that of the magazine cover. Finally I added the die cut letters to spell happy at the top and finished it all up with some white pencil drawn lines on the main section.

I love when a challenge makes me think outside the box like this one did! Enjoy hopping to see what cover art inspired others and thanks for stopping!
