We have a new challenge for you at Inkspirational: a very fun, autumnal photo inspiration. Lots of directions to go here... The colors, the couple, the dog, the leaves... I decided to be inspired of the leaves and the overall autumnal feel of the photo which I tried to capture in the colors I used. My mum asked for a blingy birthday card with lots of details for her friend and I hope my card covers her wishes... There's quite a lot of dimension in this card: first of all the the dry embossed bg and then the round, raised center panel (I used fun foam to lift if from the card base) and the die cut, golden leaf is also raised with 3d dots. I've also done some stenciling for the panel. I think this card is a bit busy... But not too bad. ;) I've been having a huuuuge crafter's block lately and this card I really enjoyed making so that's something, right? I was reading an old issue of The Card Maker and there was an article about some crafter (the name escapes me now) and she wanted to send greetings to all readers that we shouldn't worry too much about the design of the cards we make or some faults that we are not too happy with -the recipient of the card will anyway be pleased to get a hand-made card. This is something I'll try to keep in mind from now on. :)
Our guest designer this time is Jen aka Magic Flying Boots and I absolutely adore her card -it really reflects the inspiration picture! The regular DT members of Inkspirational have done amazing job as always as well so don't forget to visit everyone and leave some love. I hope to see you joining us!
