It's time for a new Inkspirational challenge! Today we have a word prompt for you: DAY. I knew immediately the sentiment I wanted to use, and then it was merely a matter of building a card around it:
Pin It Now!
As I looked though some of my already-stamped images, this intrepid bunny seemed like a fun idea for a beautiful day card. The balloon also seemed to lend itself to a slimline design. I inked a sky with some grass waaaay down below, cut it with a slimline die (many thanks to my friend and teammate Carol for these!), added the sentiment and then popped up bunny and balloon. Being such an adventurous bunny, I'm adding him to the current theme at Time Out Challenges.
This might be a perfect day for some, but I decided to also make a card that showcased a little more of what I might consider a perfect day:
Relaxing and reading on a sunny afternoon? Count me in. :D This adorable kitty and a few of his siblings were stamped and sent to me by my friend Joyce. (Along with the cutest card using another one!) He's coloured in Copics, the sun stamped in yellow and orange, and the grass added with a stippling brush. I decided to add a funky edge to the bottom of the panel, then realized I'd die cut myself into a bit of a corner as to adding a sentiment. I separately stamped the three parts of a "read-relax-repeat" stamp so I could follow the lines of the panel.
Lots of interesting interpretations of the word prompt from my talented Inkspirational teammates! I hope you will find the time to play along.
