After missing the last challenge (hanging my head in shame, althoughI did have the *out of town and no mobile crafting unit with me* as an excuse), I'm back in the groove with the fabulous gals over at Inkspirational.
For the next two weeks, our marvelous, talented, guest designer, who I know we all LURVE to bits and pieces, Tenia, from Jazzy Paper Designs, my fabulous team-mates (also deeply loved) - Sandie, Marina, Shauna, Pia, Nonni, Kim - and I, invite you to play along with Inkspirational Challenge #102
*POP*...what a great word! Just saying it makes me feel all effervescent and happy! From bursts of colour, to 'popped' up images, to pop art and music...oh, the possibilities that pop to mind (sorry, had to *grin*).
My take? Well, to use one of Tenia's phrases: CHECK IT...
My new Soda POP dies and stamps from MFT came out for a play,and they're set atop a 'bubbles' stenciled background, from STAMPlorations. Obviously, I need a keener eye when it comes to aligning both the bottles and their badges, but...for a 'prototype' of cards I'll be making for my niece's three kindergarten teachers, I'm happy. I'll work on eliminating 'slightly askew' in the real ones...
Please *pop* over to Inkspirational to see the rest of the inspiration cards, then head over to your crafting havens, create a dazzling delight and *pop* it into the gallery.
Looking forward to seeing your designs!
On a slightly different, but related note: I'm currently infatuated with using stencils, and in looking for ideas (because let's face it...I use stencils in the most simple, direct fashion), I found an amazing FREE (yes, FREE), online series by a talented designer (also Canadian, I might add): Justine Hovey. Her cards are amazing; her videos, fan-tas-tic! So, to show how much I appreciate her investment of time and creativity, I'm linking my card at her place.

which I 'think' fits with this fabulous video tutorial inspiration here.
Thanks so much for spending part of your day with me; your visit brings me joy!
