Autumn Wreath

This card was made in less than 5 mins. The fastest one so far.  Of course , i had all the supplies out on my desk, including the matting card stock and card base ready to go.

First I die cut some watercolor card stock using a rectangle die. Then using a bangle and a pencil i drew a very light circle.

I used the Hero Arts Flower Garden stamp set which has these cute and adorable images of flowers and leaves. I stamped some of those following the pencil circle as a guide and colored in with distress inks and water. To finish the card, I stamped the sentiment with spiced marmalade distress ink and matted the panel using a black and orange card stock.

The most fun thing about making this card was that it one layer, easy to make and fast to execute. I did make 6 more cards with the same design and using different colors.

The colors and theme for the card are inspired by a couple of challenges that i am linking this card to:

I hope you liked my quick card.  Do let me know what you think by leaving me a comment.

PS: Don’t forget to erase the pencil line after the inks have completely dried.

 

Spreading My Wings

” I’ll spread my wings, I’ll learn to fly

I’ll do what is takes to touch the sky”

This is one of the quotes that i like. There is something about this one that makes me work towards my goal and inspires me to follow my heart.

I am playing along with a couple of challenges :

The idea to be inspired by this quote is from Use your Stuff # 274 – Inspired by quote

The idea for the out door sky is from The paper players #356 – The Great Outdoors

The colors for this card are inspired by the Muse Cards #228 – Anita Bowden.

I really loved the colors of the muse card against black. For my card I have actually flipped the color scheme.

and this card fits Moving Along With Times #51 – Things that fly

Actually just recently, My son and i were reading about migration and we were completely in awe of the various species that migrate such long distances. What an awesome phenomena. It was equally disturbing to learn how we humans hinder this natural process and are continuously encroaching / destroying different habitats. I guess that’s why Gandhiji said  that :

“The Earth has enough for every man’s needs, But not enough for every man’s greed”
