A long weekend, and we have a list of chores "this long" to tackle, so you're being treated to a flash post today! Welcome to Inkspirational Callenge #135, where the theme for the next two weeks is *URBAN*.
Our guest designer this week, is ultra-talented, mega-sweet Aileen, from Colour and Sparkle fame for her blog and @huh_what_pardon on instagram. When you read her bio, you'll understand. In addition to her impressive creativity, she has an awesome sense of humour! Her card is nothing short of marvelous, as are those created by my sweet - and witty - teammates:
Plan 1 was to use my Paper Smooches city-scape die which, despite my valiant searching attempts, I couldn't find..grrr! The disappointment was short-lived, as I remembered my new Houses stamps from STAMPlorations. Execute Plan 2. My set of cards are more suburban than urban but...I believe I meet the definition (yayyy for Wikipedia, *grin*) of: 'relating to, or characteristic of cities or towns.'
So, without further ado, here are my Houses cards, with the images very very very loosely water-coloured with Tombow markers. I haven't completely given up on water-colouring...yet.
Apologies for the blurriness on some of these; I'm at my wit's end in trying to find ways/ places to get good photos consistently. I spend more time taking-deleting-editing-deleting, repeat x 1000 - and still ending up with lame results - than I do making cards! Yeesh!
Kind of a girly neighbourhood.
Sometimes a little house can be a 'big' home.
I wasn't going to share this crowded little number, with the 'sort of' smooshed Hello, but decided why not? It's not especially well done, but in real life, it is kind of artsy cute-ish...
There you have it: my take on *Urban* with a trio of 'congrats on your new home' cards (plus the outlier). Speaking of new homes....oops! Gotta go! We'll 'address' that topic later....
You know the routine!
Looking forward to seeing your takes on *Urban* in the Ink gallery!
Just a note: If you're interested in these fabulous Houses, or any other product from STAMPlorations, I invite you to use my code: STAMPGIRLCAROLM. Here's the details:
