Getting Geographical Challenge

Hi Friends,
Today is the start of a new theme for the Getting Geographical Challenge at the Stamping Vacation Blog. This month the theme is:

The Tuscany Region of Italy

Use this location to inspire your project. Check over at SV blog for some fun facts about Tuscany. I thought this was a tough challenge. I ended up using Clip Art from Microsoft for the main image. And, since I was feeling guilty for not stamping, I stamped a medallion stamp (Papertrey Ink) all over the DP in Crushed Curry ink.

CS: White; Ruby Red and Old Olive from Stampin' Up. Ink: Crushed Curry from SU. The DP is from Momenta and K & Company.

For accents, I added tulle, gem stickers, and a lime green ribbon. I cut the clip art and DP using a Spellbinders die.

For the inside, I added more DP stamped with the same medallion stamp. I also added a cherry sentiment form Impression Obsession stamped in Old Olive ink.

Challenges for my Tuscany Card:

Craft Your Passion: Show your layers

Papercraft Star: Photo inspiration- I used the colors in the photo to insprie my color selection. The colors in the Photo are very Tuscany.

That's it for now. Have a great day.
