The pencils inspired me to use my extensive horde of washi tapes, sentiment stamp is from the Stamp It – set 64 Key statement collection.

Just in case you haven’t heard about Pinspired, here is little bit about them:

Pinspired Challenges was created by a group of girls that LOVE Pinterest and crafting…. We came up with the idea of the challenge in the latter part of 2012 and the challenges launched in January of 2013.  Our DT, or as we like to call them, “Pin Heads” have scoured Pinterest to bring you some amazing inspirational pins.  We will post a brand new challenge on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of every month. You will have until Thursday of the following week to link your entry onto the challenge post.  That’s 9 whole days to play along!!!! Inspirational photos are for you to interpret anyway you want.  You can take from the colors, the style or the technique – whatever floats your boat! You can also feel free to make any kind of craft you want as well, whether its a card, layout or altered item.

Some of our talented team here at Crafter’s Companion US are playing along too:

Good luck and Happy Hopping!
