Inspiration comes from many places – and my cards this time are from two different sources –
My first card, is inspired by the beautiful card made by Carol Mayne over at the Muse Challenge.
I used Hero Arts Feathers stamp and the Flip-it stamping technique to make the card. The after using Rock-n-Roll technique to ink up the feather with Memento Tuxedo Black, I stamped the feathers in a row and then used Memento inks Memento Danube Blue, Lady Bug, Potter’s Clay, Teal Zeal, Dandelion on the back of the stamp to add colors to the feathers. The sentiment, from Micia Butterflies in Spring, is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I finally retraced the spine of each feather in Uniball Signo black pen. That made a whole lot of difference – you wouldn’t believe the impact the feathers made before and after the spine change! 😛
Here’s the Muse inspiration –
My second card is inspired from this beautiful sari that I found in Pinterest –
I used the triangles from Winnie & Walter: Its A Wonderful Pennant and the lines WPlus9 Country Charm to stamp the pattern in Memento Tuxedo Black ink. My first idea was to keep the card as flat as possible and so I adhered my yellow color paper directly on the card base, but I didn’t like it. So I adhered the color paper on card stock before adding it on the previous layer using foam tape. I then cut out the sentiment using Paper Trey Ink Wet Paint, one piece from black and the others from white card stock. Adhering them together with the black one topmost kinda gave a pretty look, with the white peeking from the sides. 🙂 I also wanted a bit of gold, from the sari’s borders, so I added layered white and gold sequins as embellishment.
I am a lover of geometry in card and I love how this card has turned out! 🙂 Submitting this one to Virgina’s View Challenge: Geometric Patterns –
