Craft-Room Challenge - Picture Inspiration

It's time for the first Craft-Room Challenge of the year.

We have a great FB group sharing not just these challenges but all sorts of crafty ideas. One of our group is Christine Cesar from France and she has chosen a Picture Inspiration for this fortnights challenge.

This is what Christine has to say about her challenge :
Dear crafters I am happy to be Zoe and DT members guest for this challenge. I will ask you to capture the spirit of the card and do your own card or page featuring what you extract out of it. Hoping you will have fun to challenge with me.

Christine's picture inspiration.

Our sponsor for the challenge is Ali Craft who are giving one winner drawn at Random £10 to spend at their on line shop.    

For my DT piece I've made a collaged postcard using New York, Time, Taxi, Flag and America as my inspiration from the picture.

For my collage I used
Statue of Liberty and taxi images - the Internet.
New York and flag images - Gecko Galz.
Phineas Pinchbeck stamped image - The Artistic Stamper.
I used an embossing folder for the background, there is also some tissue tape, postage stamp, watch charm and some net material on there.

Why not visit the Craft-Room Challenge blog and see what inspiration the rest of the DT took from Christine's picture.
