A Third Take on a Trend!

Do you mind if invade your space a third time today?  I had another brainstorm for the Pantone Attitude Color palette from the Ellen Hutson Pin-Sights challenge ... who could ask for more inspiration than this:


With Wonky Backdrops, and So Matcha stamps, & dies in hand ... and a tall stack of Distress Oxides, and two Distress inks... this is a the little scene I created today:


Do you like it?  I hope you see that wonderful grapefruit in this creation ... and this:

Taken in France by a fantastic photographer from Italy!  Thank you Moira!

I'm hopeful that you'll find a little inspiration here today ... why not play along with the March Pin-Sights challenge?

Distress Oxides used for the palette from top to bottom:

Wild Honey, Candied Apples, Vintage Photo, Fossilized Amber, Seedless Preserves, Spiced Marmalade - regular Distress Ink, Salty Ocean, and Dusty Concord-regular Distress ink .... phew!

Gorgeous watercolor background effect for your faux umbrellas, Michele. Did you heat emboss your stamped grapefruits:-) I would love to try your technique with a stack of Distress inks! Such a sweet asian girl too. TFS my friend. Hugs..

I love how you were inspired, Michele. The wonky background stamp works great as a grapefruit or a pseudo-umbrella. The colors all flow together beautifully.

Oh WOW! I need to walk down this street.... at least I get to enjoy your card inspiration, it's just as good as getting to walk down this street!

Fantastic card, Michele. Love all the color and your grapefruity take on the umbrella walk. Just so wonderfully colorful and happy!

Yep, I certainly do, Michele, see the grapefruit in your fabulous background for that little girl ... it was the first thing that came to mind ... so very cool! Good to see those wonderful brollies making another appearance ... it was the signs on the shops in the previous photo that gave the location away ... just a bit familiar ;)! Hugs, Anita :)
