Guess what? Two weeks have flown by so it’s time for a brand new challenge at Time Out Challenges! This time around, we’re getting inspired by this phrase: Birds of a feather flock together. Use the entire phrase as a starting point, or just pick one or two words — your call. Your project can be anything you like, not just a card. We’d love to see your Inspired by Words projects so don’t be shy about adding them to the TO gallery/linky! This time we’ve got the super-creative Jill V. of My Life in Paper guest designing, and you should see her awesome take on this fortnight’s challenge! And my lovely TO teamies created beautiful projects as well…come see our project parade, be inspired, and play along :o)
I went with a one layer card and focused on “feather” in the phrase. Sounds pretty simple, right? Not entirely. This is attempt #3 because the first 2 attempts were stamping disasters.
Attempt #1: I dropped the acrylic block with the inked feather stamp right smack in the middle of the card just as I was stamping the last feather. I blame it on the tripod for when I’m shooting videos. I leaned over too far and I hit my forehead on the protruding bar for attaching my video camera. That’s what I get for being too lazy to put the thing away when I’m not shooting videos. Stunned me silly (I saw stars) that I dropped the block onto my card :o)
Attempt #2: To transition from one color to the next, I inked the feather in two colors. So when I was transitioning from orange (tangelo) to red (morocco), it wasn’t after I had stamped the darn feather that I saw that I had switched the two colors. I gave myself an imaginary face-palm as soon as I realized my mistake. No one to blame but me for this goof-up, because I refuse to be sensible and do a test stamp on scrap first. DH has suggested that many, many times before, and each time, I give him a cheeky response: “I stamp dangerously,” and he’d roll his eyes. I know he’s right, but then I think I’m allowed to have my own method of madness…and again, I stamp dangerously ;o)
Thanks for stopping by!
