This is my card for MCV10, where Chriss gave us this warm, wintry inspiration:
I know, you're sitting there wondering what the connection is right? Well, let's just say that this card was an evolution.
I knew for sure I wanted to use Chriss' fun colour scheme (I used SU! Real Red, PTI Bermuda Bay and MFT Limelight). I cut this curved shape from MFT's Blueprint #25 for Chriss' curved panel edge. And I used a sentiment with JOY in it (unknown, very, very old JOY and separate 'to the world'). Oh yes, and a red card base. Wow, that's more than I thought! lol!
I don't have any mittens (stamps or dies - how did that happen?). I did try adding texture and stamping to the curves. I thought about stamping the sentiment in red on the white (for the red and white twine), but it didn't feel like me, and at the end of the day, you need to feel like your take on any inspiration still feels like you, right?
Anyway, in the end, I love the feeling of the joy bursting from the sentiment and I think that the colour scheme is really enough to show that I was inspired by Chriss' card. And that's the whole point of this challenge!
I hope you'll get a chance to join us - the deadline is Wednesday at 8 am EDT. At that time you can vote for your 3 favourites until Thursday at 8 am. Results will be posted on Thursday at noon (hopefully; please read below!)
This morning, Kate and I are leaving for Music Camp. Kate is a student and I'm on faculty as piano accompanist and theory teacher. There is wifi up there but it's not always reliable and I'll be pretty busy, so if you notice that my comments are sparse and that voting posts go up empty, you'll know why! I will definitely fix everything that goes wrong when I get back next Sunday.
