Thank You...Inkspirational Challenge #134~Photo Inkspiration (Shop Window)


Ready for a new challenge? Excellent...and I'm here to deliver! Welcome to Inkspirational Challenge #134~Photo Inkspiration. Isn't this cool?

The background story for this image comes from our own Marina, whose 'photographic lens' caught this fabulous shop front when she was visiting in France last year. Here's a closer look:

Inspiring, indeed!  Actually, I want to know if she wandered inside and came away with an item or four! I see some pretties in that window!

My eye was drawn to the colours - kraft and peach/coral (lower left of the photo - not sure exactly what that item is, all wispy-like...)- the 'texture' of the sidewalk tiles and the 'airness' of the feathers.  Those, combined, lead to this....

I'm loving, loving, loving this Concord & 9th butterfly die...and yes, you'll be seeing it in action again very soon!

Please be sure to head over to the INK blog to see the awesome designs this photo sparked for my team-mates - MarinaShaunaSandieYvonneNonniKylie.  An array of WOW awaits you!

Looking forward to how this photo will inspire you! See you in the gallery!
