Panels of Art

I have to say this week the inspirational photo from Paper Lovin' Gals had be guessing for a while, then I knew exactly what I wanted to do.  Does the photo immediately inspire you or will this one take some thought?  Either way come and play along with us this week.

I loved the artistic shapes of the panels and once inspiration took hold I knew I wanted to replicate them with my punches.  I used the Itty Bitty Shapes punches and the small heart punch, I randomly punched shapes out of Pool Party, Calypso Coral and Poppy Parade card stock before mounting each on Whisper white and then framed each with Basic black.  The DSP layer is from Beau Château DSP collection.  I used Curly Cute for the sentiment, I am loving this set both for variety of sentiments and the font used.  I cut a strip of card stock just over 1" wide and put each end into the Decorative Label Punch to trim off the end to give it a fancy look, I then cut a slightly wider piece of Basic Black, mounted the sentiment on it and trimmed the ends using the same method. What do you think?

Pop on over to the Paper Lovin' Gals blog and check out what the other Design Team members have created to inspire you, then join in the fun.

Happy Stamping
