My card was one of those picked at Inkspirational for the word prompt
'Connect' and later they asked if I would like to participate in this weeks
It's always so very exciting when you get an email from a Challenge Blog and you are asked to participate in a future challenge as a Guest Designer. I get so excited and cant wait to tell my husband and my kids and then they look at me like 'ohhh thats nice'. They just don't get it. Then of course reality sets in. I have to do a particular card, not just any card......and then its time to decide what do.
This was a card that took a lot of thinking from me. I looked it up and decided to go with the first definition.
The stamp I have used here is a Penny Black, one of three in the set which has the four houses you see at the front bottom row. After stamping that image, I used masks to add more, moving them around for a bit of variety. I stamped in waterproof ink.
I have very loosely painted using zigs watered down considerably and a brush to add the colours.
I love the sentiment I decided to use and stamped then die cut with stitched tag die. I spent more time trying to work out where to place the sentiment than painting it, I think. Anyway it went with my idea of urban, lots of houses and a sort of 'where'sWally' idea as in 'wherever you are!!'
I hope this gives you an idea or two and you participate in the challenge over at Inspirational. Don't forget to check out what the Design Team have made.
Thank you so much for coming to visit and I hope you come again soon.
