Challenge 154 Aperture



Welcome back to Inkspirational. This challenge, Kylie is challenging us to use an aperture (or window) , on a card. 

Please welcome our Guest Designer:

Jen 



Hi! My name is Jen, and I live in Nottingham UK with my lovely bloke Mark, and our two cats Emily & Lily. I make cards and lampwork glass beads, and am currently learning to sew (with mixed results!). I have become obsessed with card challenges – it’s such a great way to get inspiration and try designs and colours that you wouldn’t normally use, and you see so many different techniques, clever ideas and really beautiful cards! Unfortunately, you also discover lots and lots of craft supplies you didn’t realise you absolutely needed... I wish my craft room (and bank account) was bigger!





Here is some inspiration from the design team:

Top Picks Violin Photo Challenge

Current challenge HERE.

Thank you to all those who played along in our violin photo challenge!


These are our top picks:

We love her soft background of pink and the slight music script!  Also, her gorgeous glitter flower is a statement piece with the lovely touches of pearls taken from the photo!



 This card is pure elegance! The embossed background in black gives a striking contrast to the pretty colors of the flower which are beautifully colored-look at that shading! We especially love how she took so many elements from our photo to her card and in a very stunning way!


Sazzle Dazzle
This bold flower and sentiment make such a great statement with an original design! We love her use of color and the feminine tones!



Congratulations to our top picks!

Top Picks Gift

Current challenge HERE.

Thank you to all those who played along in our "gift" word challenge!


These are our top picks:

Janet
 


We love her 12 Days of Christmas gifts for a friend who needed spirits lifted! These gifts are pretty, thoughtful and heart-warming. She really took 'gift' to heart in her act of kindness.



Kathy
 
 We love that Kathy took the word 'gift' literally in her presentation and her gift wrapping is nothing short of sensational. Her embossed wrapping is beautifully paired with her die cut leaves and pine cones!


We love all the different textures used to layer up the gift box! The combination of colors is lovely and we like her bold deer stamp!
