Inkspirational Challenge #306 - Moodboard - For You Bow-Tied Card (TH - Bow-Tied, Spellbinders embossing folder and tag)


Welcome to Inkspirational Challenge #306; we're delighted to have you joining us for our wrap-up challenge of 2023. We invite you to draw inspiration from this predominately gold + black, elegant and stylish Mood Board. Hopefully you'll discover something to capture your interest: hearts, stripes, geometric patterns, cutlery, feathers, candles, the colours and so much more. 

Obvious what caught my eye: the colours. My cimple-to-create card features the oh-so-pretty Bow-Tied, from Tim Holtz, set atop a pearlescent black embossed background and a simple little tag. Both are from Spellbinders. The card works for a birthday or any occasion where a gift may be involved. Excited to use this bow in other colours; it's way easier for me to die-cut and layer one that it is to fuss around with real ribbon! 

Before turning the stage over to you:

The Inkspirational team would like to express our appreciation for your participation this year. Your enthusiasm and creativity bring us joy; thank you for embracing our challenges with such enthusiasm. We hope that the momentum of 2023 continues throughout 2024.

Wishing you a most Happy New Year!

See you in the gallery!
Thank you for dropping by!

You keep using dies that I keep trying not to purchase Carol!! How beautiful is this giant bow in gold against the black! Love the subtle texture added by the embossing on the black - a simple design that sure packs a punch and also reflects the mood board inspiration! Wishing you a crafty, healthy 2024! Julia xx
