Happy Easter...Inkspirational Challenge #131~Photo Inspiration


A hearty thank you and round of applause for those of you who joined our Inkspirational Smooshing challenge! Such fabulous creativity and inspiration; I may become addicted to this technique after all!

Now, 'tis time to invite you Inkspirational Challenge #131~Photo Inkspiration.

Our wonderfully talented guest designer this week is Birgit; you'll find her card wonderfully magical, as you will those of my marvelous team-mates (who now know I was this close to bailing...). Please leave them some love: 
Yvonne - welcome back!!!!'s my card.

I know exactly what  just ran through your mind: "What the heck?", right?  And yes, I completely accept that.  But...bear with me as I babble out my connection. Sooooo, as challenging as I found the smooshing to be, this photo took the proverbial cake in proving to be nearly 'un-do-able' for me.  Yes, plenty to draw, a key, a magic hat, a candle stick, colours, shapes (diamonds/circles...), tricks,  but nothing...absolutely x 100% nothing would gel for me.  I was about to play hooky (I'm serious...I had an 'I'm soooo busy' ruse lined up *grin*), but then I spotted the bunny.
So...I went with:

  • my Uniko Some Bunny bunny (fussy-cut, even!)...
  • and a circle...
  • and colours (if you zoom, you'll see pink in the candlestick, yellow to the right of that, on the photo's edge and orange, on the book), using my Uniko Background Blocks Halftone Clear Stamp
  • and a heart (several appear around the arrangement).

Before I knew it, an Easter card appeared! Magic! Just like waving a wand and pulling a bunny out of a hat!

And that, my sweet friends, is my story of how this inkspirational photo proved not to be my undoing, but a Easter muse, of all things!

Turning the stage over to you.

Looking forward to seeing your 'magical' creations in the gallery!
