You're Someone Special

 Hi everyone!
 This month Uniko Studios  is sponsoring  TIME OUT Challenges!
 I just love this brilliant Inspirational photo and had to play! I am very much inspired with their talented Designer Team creations!

I  love each and every element in this photo. I am so much inspired by the colors, so pretty, the woodwall back panel with Big & Bold Hello and specially that comfortable couch with beautiful cushions too.
 Here comes my take:
    As you can see - I get very literal when using an inspiration picture!
 I drew the couch on a textured pattern paper, as I didn't have any couch stamp and fussy cut it. Added the pillows to the couch using different felt colors and tried to create some textures on it according to the photos. I gave them depth and dimension using pop dots.

 I used the Weaving Embossing Folder to create the look of the woodwall back panel in the background.  And before embossing I distressed it with vintage photo and adhered it flat. I went with the bold and bright hello against the wood panel. And this was the perfect chance to use my newest 'hello' die !  I die cut the word three times from a snippet of red CS and stacked it.
 And ended it with few sequins!
Here's the inside  view: 

I just love how this one turned out!
Supplies used:
Textured white CS, Snippets of Textured Pattern Paper
WPLUS9-Hand lettered Hello die(new in my stash)
Fiskars-Hexagon sentiments(new)

Darice Basketweave embossing folder
