As our wonderful friend, Darnell often notes, we have whooshed through another two weeks (major whooshing going on...we're already having winter *grin*!) since the last Inkspirational Challenge, and here we are with a new one: Inkspirational Challenge #65~Word Prompt~Flight
Joining the DT today is our immensely talented guest designer, Cornelia, who will wow you with a duo of delightful flight-inspired cards. Of course, the rest of the team has some dazzlers as well, and I know they'd love if you'd fly in and leave them some love:
I confess: some conundrums with this challenge, on a couple of levels.
Here's the issue: my first card (yeah...two again...), while connecting well to "flight", has but a fleeting link to the challenge name: INKspirational. Die cuts all the way on this baby, except for a whisper of ink on the sentiment and the paper plane's flight pattern:
The plane and hearts are the "Joy Craft" metallic-ish paper. Call me addicted!
Somehow, that didn't seem 'quite' right, so I went with a second card that featured INK. The 'flight' link - in an obvious fashion - however, seemed to have flown out the window, although I could compose a fairly persuasive argument - with support from good ol' reliable Wikipedia - that my card is an interpretation of "flight feathers".
Love x Love these STAMPlorations feathers
See what I mean? Card 1 aligns with the prompt reasonably well, but misses out on "ink"; Card 2 features "ink", with a loose interpretation of the prompt. Rather than make a decision, I simply defaulted to my usual response when faced with indecision: choose both (reminds me of when my mom asks Pa, "Would you like apple pie or cherry?", to which he responds,"Yes," No decision required.). Somewhere in the middle of these two, I reckon the challenge has been met...sort of....
I'm also sending Card 2 over to ColourQ Challenge #258, as the feathers are a merging of Blackberry Bliss and Hello Honey (BB is the background cardstock), mixed with "as close as possible" other inks for the saffron and grey.
Head over to Inkspirational Challenges, scope out the inspiration cards, then connect with your 'inner pilot to create a card to share in the gallery! Excited to see how "Flight" inspires you! We will be choosing a top pick's from this challenge and inviting one entrant to join us as a Guest Designer.
Thanks so much for dropping by; your visit and comments add sparkle to my day!
