I am NOT responsible for this card!
Okay, it was the inspiration challenge that made me do this! We were supposed to find something in our home to inspire a card.
I am sure she meant home decor--but our home does not have a great deal of *decor*. So I was about to head to my daughters' closets to find some inspiration (they have some neat colors and patterns in their clothes.). WHEN, as if on cue, my little dd came out and said, "Look what I put on!!" She is so proud of this outfit. and I do admit--I smile when I look at it.
You have to admit, it IS colorful! Let's see, a lime zip front hoodie (with pastel floral applique); a raspberry shirt, a pink and brown cow print velour skirt; patchwork tights, and white patent shoes.
I should mention that she is four and thinks this is BEAUTIFUL!!!
So, now I have inspiration. Next is layout, stamps, and embellishments. WELL--there are more challenges to conquer.
Beate covered the layout with WSC41. Thanks Beate!
Next came the stamp choices. I saw Sharon's Challenge: Paper Piecing. Hmmmmmm. So I went rooting in my stamp collection for a stamp that could be pieced. I came up with Rupert from Doodle Factory--in fact, it reminds me of my dd!!!
Now embellishments! The limited supply challenge was to use embellishments we have never used and wondered why we ever bought. Enter really huge flower that I got in the silk flower dept. at our local $ store.
I rummaged around in my patterned paper archives. (BTW--I noticed when I was done, all the papers were from the same manufacturer--ColorBok) And came up with some bright and FUN papers. And so the card evolved.
So this card is not my fault!! Blame it on Stef, Joy, Beate, Sharon and Jen!!!
