Tuesday Trigger and Welcome to a new Member
First things first -
I have a new member to welcome to my blog - she is not a stranger to me, since we have emailed back and forth now for a while. We are both expats from Germany, our home towns are not far apart and besides that we have card making in common. She just started her own blog and it would be so nice if you would pay her a visit, say hi and who knows - become a member on her blog! Doesn't that make us all happy? (It makes me happy, that's for sure!). So after this intro
and here is your welcome picture - I hope you like it!
The sculptures are by George Segal, an American Pop art painter and sculptor. I discovered those on one of my New York City walking tours in the West Village.
I abandoned all my other card making plans, when I saw this Tuesday Trigger photo last night and I made TWO cards for it. I show you the second card first (Because I like the first one a lot more - hang on....)
I used my Avery Elle set - Bright Days to stamp the triangles with one of my Kaleidocolor stamp pads. Does anybody know how to get even inking for those larger stamps? I always get white spots, where the ink just does not cover the stamp - is it ink dependent? I have struggled with that in the past, but decided for this card to pretend that's how I wanted it to be.....
The sentiment is by Stempelknopf - a present from my blogging friend Monika. I added some sequins. By the way, if you don't have the right color you can use markers to color them - I used a sharpie for the green ones (originally silver)....I should have just bought silver ones.....
Here is the Trigger photo -absolutely stunning!!!
And now to my second card:
I cut up strips of rainbow paper - my blogging friend Flo (Doerthe) mailed them to me a while ago and I was always thinking about using them. This project was perfect for it!
The die cut and sentiment are from Simon Says. I just love how it came out - I keep staring at it, LOL!
I am also linking this card with the Die Cut Divas - Let's Celebrate challenge
I also kind of fits the challenge over at CASE Study, so I am linking it up here as well.
