Today, a very special post to WELCOME the new DT members over at Addicted to Stamps and More! I'm going to miss those who are leaving: Lee-Anne, Sarah, Sue, Tenia & Karen. Your gifts of creativity and warm support have touched me deeply; you've given me tremendous encouragement to 'carry on' in this sport of ours! On the plus side: I know where to find you in blog land and I'll definitely be visiting! Wishing you the best of luck on wherever your crafting journeys lead!
To the new members: what an honour to be playing alongside you as a member of this team! I look forward to the inspiration you'll be sharing with all of us!
I have, for you today, a welcome card that was inspired by the beautiful cards over at Winnie & Walter, designed by the marvelously creative Gayatri:
Now, the 'purpose' of her cards was to showcase some fabulous stenciling techniques, as you can see in her diagonal and horizontal stenciled lines. Stunning, yes?
Well, I don't have any W&W stripe stencils or small floral stamp images BUT was that going to stop me from being sparked by her inspiration? No sirreee! So...I adapted..
Obviously, I didn't play with her stamping in the stencil and adding black lines technique to the full (alright..I didn't at all!) but I did use a stencil (made with my brand-spanking new Multifaceted Cover Die), the yellow/pink combination (yummy) and black 'outlining'. Gayatri's cards have a 'light, airy' feel to them, which I also tried to mirror. Even though I strayed
somewhat a lot, I'm pleased with the result. I hope you, my new team-mates, will like this 'virtual' welcome card! THANK YOU to Gayatri for the inspiration and yep...adding some W&W stencils/masks to my shopping list. That technique is too fabulous not to try 'for real'!
My card is heading to the following galleries:

Thank you so much for dropping by; your visit and comments add sparkle to my day.\!
