Dream A Little Dream


Today I'm using some of the older STAMPlorations stamp sets.  I've used Trendy Feathers and Artful Flutters, both from the Vignette series.

The card is based on a lesson from my online mixed media class, Lifebook 2015, where we drew a feather onto a similar background to this.  When I spritzed the background (Dylusions) there was a white gap which was shaped like an 'a' so I created the sentiment around that.  I wrote 'little' in white pen then edged it with black.  I added some colour and white pen to the feather.

Pop on over to the STAMPlorations blog to see the fabulous designs from the rest of the Inspiration Team.  If you fancy CASEing this card, or any other cards by the Inspiration Team, you can include yours in our CASEplorations challenge.


I'm entering my card into Simon Says Monday Challenge, No Rules

and The Paper Players, where I'm up to my stretch-a-sketch tricks again.  My circle is the big splodge of blue and green ;), my sentiment is lower and not on a banner, and my funny 'a' represents the twine, but hey, I've got a feather!

  8. I'm thinking that there really is no limit on how 'creatively' you want to interpret a sketch...so stretch-a-sketch works!!! I love, love, love how you integrated the 'unexpected' white space into a working element ... "a" great save! The feather is jaw dropping amazing!

  9. You always find those little 'somethings' that become, with your unique style and flair, magical...the little white space transformed into an 'a', your stretch-a-sketch interpretation, the colour combination. Sheer brilliance and oh-so-pretty!

  10. You've got wonderful "art eyes." They see what's there, and what might be there, and then make it a reality. Stunning ideas, and love that you wrote your own 'little.' Sweet card. Bev
