So many ideas to take away from this one! In the end I was most influenced by colour and the watercolouring. I made two cards ...
I had to do a smooshing session! I love that word. It's harder than it looks because your colours can become very muddy, very quickly. I'm fairly happy with my results but I want to try much more smooshing!
I kinda like this one. I'm really into combining my Baker's Dozen and Zappy Birthday stamps on cards at the moment. I think everyone I know is going to be getting a Zappy Cupcake card this year! I have very limited supplies with me in Florida so I just did a quick Copic coloured background on this one, in the spirit of the inspiration piece.
I wanted to make so many more cards for the hop (I always like to do four or five or six!), and I had lots of ideas but I ran out of time. The weather here is just too good and too tempting! I don't know if I should post this photo, but I'm going to anyway. I feel I need to for all those suffering in most of North America in those frigid temperatures. These are the conditions that I'm having to deal with ...
Frightening, I know.
