Bike racing events happening this weekend - time trial this evening, followed by an early morning drive to criterium races Sunday morning/afternoon - and the weather is absolutely marvelous! Before we go, however, important things to be done and that is...
Welcome to Inkspiration Challenge #110, where our wonderful, talented Guest Designer, Jen (her husband is Canadian...*fist pump*!), along with my fabulous teammates Sandie, Nora, Shauna, Marina, Kim, Yvonne and yours truly, invite you to play along with this Word Prompt:
I admit, I had a little difficulty deciding what direction to go with 'text' (a range of possibilities, right?). Then, I saw Jen's card over at CASology Week 200 and PING!! Light bulb moment!
I think I adhered fairly well to the CAS guidelines...let's just do a quick review:
- One main image: yep, the rainbow sponged PTI sentiment
- Lots of open space, uncluttered: I think so...just a white embossed panel, to fulfill the "text" requirements of the Ink challenge
- Limited layers & embellishments: my 'signature' panel and no embellishments
- Quick & easy to recreate: Yes to the recreate for sure! Coming UP with the idea, however, took a while...as did lining up my paper straight in the embossing folder! Am I the only one who fusses and fiddles with doing that? Yeesh! Grand time total: about 7 minutes once I got going.
Of course, just to be on the 'safe' side, I made a couple more *text* cards, inspired by a delightful set of notelets oh-so-creative Shirley designed for one of the STAMPlorations Spotlight Projects. She included a tutorial: yayyyy!!! So, I started out by shamelessly pretty much copying her cards...
then made another using a different palette: Dusty Concord, Peeled Paint, Shaded Lilac (just played around to get this colour combination...)
Sponging a background with distress inks, spritzing water on stamps, then stamping: now that's "my" kind of watercolouring *grin*!
Now....YOUR TURN! How will you interpret TEXT?
Looking forward to finding out when I visit your cards in the gallery!!

ETA: A couple of my sweet friends (thank you!) suggested I also join Happy Little Stampers June 2016 CAS Challenge~Ghosting (and here I though I was just water-colouring *grin*), so I am.
I'm so glad you spent part of your day with me; your visit brings me immense joy!
