Hello … bonjour! We have a fun and delicious new challenge starting at Time Out today. This fortnight, we’re Inspired By Words … and our quote has been specially chosen to celebrate International Dot Day … a day that celebrates creativity and the potential it has for us all. Our words are from Robert Henri … ‘paint the flying spirit of the bird rather than it’s feathers’. Here’s where I went with them …
A tumbling feathers card panel (thanks to the lovely Rosemary … not sure where it’s from … Papertrey, perhaps?), with some Spectrum Noir shimmer added (you can just see some top left), trimmed and adhered flat to the base card. The sentiment is from SSS … a stacked and black heat embossed die cut … and a stamped and white heat embossed supplementary sentiment. The only additions were the dots on the i’s, done with enamel accents (ever tried heat embossing a tiny dot … don’t!!). QACAS as the delightful Darnell would say!
How will our quote inspire you? You can use all or any of the words to get your imagination going … we’d love to see what you come up with! This fortnight, we’re sponsored by Happy Little Stampers (thanks, Kylie) and our winner, as voted for by the DT, will receive a $15 GV. All the details (including a little more about International Dot Day) are over at the Time Out blog, along with heaps of ideas from our fabulous DT and from our Guest Designer, the sweet and super talented Carol from Just Me: C. I’m pretty sure you’ll know Carol … do pop over and enjoy a happy time browsing round her scrumptious cards … and why not say hello while you’re there … she’ll be delighted to see you!
