This month the Challenge is "Inspiration". All the 3 DT will have one inspiration photo for you to choose from. I have 2 cards to share with you today! And we are being sponsored by none other than Karen's Doodles.The prize for this challenge is 3 images from the fabulous collections at Karen's Doodles.
Here is my inspiration photo for this challenge. Its a card from one of my very sweetest blog friend Michele Kovack. She was the one who filled my collection of wood mounted stamps! A wonderful person, a super mom and a wonderful,wonderful crafter. She too loves glitter as much as I do...
I would love for you to step by her blog and say Hi to her...Here is the card by her and there is a tutorial too.
I have loved this card for its glitter (no prizes for guessing that) and the vibrant colors. I chose to take the rainbow as an inspiration and create my own.
Tiffany's Doodles- a freebie. I used glue and gloss on the acetate sheet to create the rain. After all you can't have a rainbow without the rain and the sun!! The clouds have been lined with silver pen (literal silver lining in the clouds!!)
|Loads of martha stewart glitter! yumm! (ignore my finger in the corner)|
The second card is with an image generously given from Karen's doodles. I chose to pick these Birthday Penguins coz I found them to be the most happiest! To be honest I had a tough, very tough time picking an image to work with..they're all so gorgeous!
|Glitter and glue and gloss!|
Just some simple rules :
1.Pick anything you like from that photo, the colors, the shape, the theme...and show us your interpretation.
Do mention which photo inspired you and what inspired you. If you can put up the inspiration photo along with your card, that would be great..but not necessary.
2. Make sure its a new project.
3. Link it up on Crafty JC's Challenge blog.
4. And as my favorite blogger says, Have fun!
I've kept my chatter to a minimum today.. I wanted to go on about how I created these cards. But since there are a lot of pictures today, the banter goes down!
