End of September and Fall's presence surrounds us in the rich autumn palette of the leaves, the crispness of the air, the donning of cozy sweaters, leggings, boots. Rather romantic...and so, too, is the picture inspiration (Emma Block) the DT and I are inviting you to draw inspiration from for Inkspirational Challenges #92
What draws your eye? The trees and their heart-shaped leaves (which I just now noticed!), the leafy path, the sweet dalmation, tugging on his leash, the little girl and her puppy companion, the entranced-with-one-another couple, the shades of blue/grey or reds/orange? So many entry points...
Please welcome our talented Guest Designer, Jen (aka Magic Flying Boots), with a card that truly is magical! Once again, my teammates have dazzled me with their interpretations; they'd love if you strolled over for a visit: Marina, Shauna, Sandie, Yvonne, Nonni, Kim, Pia.
Late last fall, the lovely STAMPlorations Trendy Leaves joined my collection, and this card marks their debut. I chose the three patterned images, coloured them randomly (or so I thought) with distress markers (I was drawn to the leaves from the photo), gave them a 'huff and a puff' (no water-colour or spritzing...tooooo scary!. I think more puffing was needed to blend the colours more), and stamped them around my Uniko sentiment. I'm not well-versed in creating this type of background, but because I love what others create, I figured I'd give it a go. I'm 'okay' with the result, but next time, I'm aspiring to design a card like this one by Jeanne. The circle sentiment: swoon-inducing! Anyway...mine's a 'starting' point and oh, how pretty those leaf images are to 'colour' and to stamp...
What features of the picture will you share with us? I'm excited to find out! See you in the gallery and remember: the winner will be invited to join us as a guest designer in a future challenge.
