It's time for another lawnscaping challenge! We're asking you to craft your inspiration! Is there a crafter who inspires you? A pin that caught your eye? A new stamp set or tool that sparked something creative in you? Craft it, and link up to our challenge!
I am so inspired by Pinterest. Especially, posters and prints. I found this nursery print:
and turned it into this card:
I didn't keep the vintage vibe, or even the same animal (we need a lawn fawn elephant, though!) but that harness inspired me to hook up my party rhino and take him for a spin. You know what they say: when rhinos fly... (oh wait, that's pigs. hee)
I paper-pieced the balloons, but masked around the clouds to sponge in a soft sky. The harness on the rhino was hand-drawn, using a memento black marker, so that I could still color him in with copics and not have any ink-bleed.
Now that I'm writing up this post, I realize that I not only roughed up the edges of my patterned paper, but I also added some faux stitching, and used "critters on the savanna." I think I must have crafted this card the same day as my woven giraffe card :) Do you ever do that? Carry over a certain technique from one card to the next if you craft them in the same day? I hardly ever make more than 1 card at a time.... maybe I should stick to that. *grins*
I hope you join us this week:
