Hello … bonjour! We have a fabulous new challenge for you at Time Out today … this time we’re ‘Inspired by Words’ with this fun quote from Eleanor Roosevelt … ‘A woman is like a tea bag … you can’t tell how strong she is until you put her in hot water’. Here’s my take …
I drew some ‘unstructured’ lines down a panel of watercolour card with four colours of Zig Brush Markers. So that the lines wouldn’t get washed out, I added water to alternate stripes, pulled the colour in from each side, left the panel to dry … and then went back and did the same with the remaining stripes. The sentiment is from Concord & 9th, white heat embossed over the watercolouring … and I added a scattering of clear sprinkles … just because they put me in mind of droplets on a watery background! The panel was trimmed to size and popped up on craft foam onto the card base.
How does this quote inspire you? I was taken with the overall sense of the phrase … but you can focus on any or all the words for your card … or on something that it brings to mind. This particular challenge is running for one week only … Mr Linky’s doors will close next Wednesday, 6 April at 5.00pm BST … normal fortnightly service will be resumed from then on! All the details are over at the Time Out blog, along with heaps of yummy inspiration from our amazing DT and from our wonderfully talented Guest Designer, Elaine from Craft-E-Place. Do hope you’ll get chance to play along!
