I was so excited when I saw the theme for Taheerah's next Winnie and Walter - The Gossip Column was 'Geometrics'. I love geometric designs on anything i.e. pillows, wallpaper, prints, fabric etc. It does seem to be everywhere at the moment which is brilliant for me. I had so many ideas for card designs and then my flu hit. I made myself sit down on Monday night with my stamps and ink pads and just play around.
I'll be honest, I've never had such a problem with my mojo disappearing like it has at the moment. I think its because I'm constantly left with a sinus headache, that it keeps interfering with my imagination. Anyway, it was good to create just something and I came up with four different designs. Two I have finished and the others need more work, so watch this space....
This first card is one I thought of pretty quickly because I thought the stamps would look great in lines and have such a retro vibe:
I stamped the larger round stamp from Clearly Besotted 'Simply Quilled' in red ink across a piece of white CS. I then die-cut the circle and popped it up on foam tape on my card front. I stamped the sentiment from Winnie and Walter 'The Big, the Bold and You' in black ink and heat embossed twice with clear embossing powder to give it lots of shine. I cut it out with scissors and put on foam tape as well. A few enamel dots (from Papervine) in black and clear rhinestones (from Kaisercraft) finished it off.
I have quite a few cheap canvas's at home that I've covered with fabric that I love and think this design on fabric would be awesome!!
Will post my other card shortly (which is quite a bit different to this one). And fingers crossed I will gain enough mojo back to make some more. I always enjoy the Winnie and Walter challenges, they really get me out of my comfort zone!
