Inkspirational #64

Happy Saturday,

It is time for our photo challenge at Inkspirational and this week we have this stunning photo for you:

This photo is just full of inspiration. At first I wanted to go with the design on the blue dress but everything I tried didn't seem to work. I eventually went with feathers and came up with this:

I stamped the pink feather first adding some sparkle, although hard to see in the photo. Then heat embossed the second onto vellum and fussy cut it out. The green feather was stamped, sparkle added with a green gelly roll pen, fussy cut and then adhered using foam dots for dimension. I decided to ground the feathers using scraps of card I used whilst making the base of this card.

This week our Guest Designer is the very talented Pauline, check out her blog Crafting with Cotnob-you will find plenty to inspire you!

And don't forget to take a look here to see what our DT made to encourage you  to play along.



  1. What a stylish layout, I love the strips of card! Fun color choices too. xxx

  2. What a great layout and color combo! I'm going to dig out my feather stamps and dies and I'll see where it leads me!

  3. Love those feathers and the stripes ground the design perfectly.

  4. I really like this! Your color combination is fantastic. It looks like a form of color blocking. Great bold look and the layered feathers are perfect for a peacock inspiration!

  8. This is gorgeous Sandie, I love the bright pink and lime feathers - a great take on the inspiration photo.
    Thank you for making me feel so welcome as a Guest Designer at Inkspirational this week.

  9. I love that you've taken quite a different direction from the rest of us and made it your won. Love the bright colours - I would never have thought of 'grounding' them like that but it looks perfect. Love the glitter too.

  10. Awesome card! Love the colours and it's a wonderful take on the inspiration photo! :-)
