Challenge #139- Designer's Choice - Sketch




Welcome back to Inkspirational. 

First, we're sad to tell you that Pia  has left our DT after three years. She's been having a break from the team recently and decided not to return. We will miss Pia and her wonderful designs. Thank you Pia for your contribution to Inkspirational. 

Shauna has chosen this week's challenge, and she's created a wonderful sketch for us to use. You can use any shape for the circles. 

Please welcome our Guest Designer:



Hello. I'm Izzy, I live in France with my wonderful hubby and our 2 teenagers (1 boy  16 years old and 1 girl 14 years old). I became addict to this hobby in 2010 during our expatriation. Since then I love to color, stamp, try new techniques...and thanks to this awesome crafting community I learnt (and still learn !) a lot. I'm really delighted to be guest designing here along at Inkspirational for this challenge.

You can find me at : www.izzyscrap.com


Here are some ideas from our Design Team:

Challenge #138- Rural




Welcome back to Inkspirational. Our challenge today is to be inkspired by the word 'rural', 

Please welcome our Guest Designer :

Elaine





I live in Oxfordshire and  work as a school administrator in a local primary school, I only work during the term time (at least in paid employment!).  My passion, outside of my family, is to be creative and I always have a number of projects on the go.  I love card making as it is so immediate and I can fit it in when time is short.  I guess I would describe my style as mostly CAS but I love to try out new techniques and am always on the look out for new ways of creating.  In addition to card making and other paper crafts I love working with textiles – I love knitting, sewing, cross stitch and embroidery.  I’m currently brushing up my printing skills – learning the art of lino printing, wood cuts and etching. 






Here's what our DT made:

Challenge #137 - Photo Inkspiration

Welcome back to Inkspirational. This time we challenge you to use this photo as inkspiration.

Please welcome our wonderful Guest Designer:

Linda




Hi everyone. I am so excited to be guest designing for this challenge on Inkspirational. I feel I have been crafting in some way or another since school days, but found I love most of all being able to make cards. I began almost 12 years ago when I was off work for 6 weeks with a back injury, and spent a lot of my time watching the craft channel on TV. Since then, I haven't really found a style I don't like. I love die-cutting, and - thanks to my Misti - can now stamp quite effectively. I do struggle with clean and simple, though. I work full time in the NHS, and live with my hubby and two gorgeous big black cats - that's not to say my hubby isn't gorgeous too.....in Chesterfield in the UK. Home of the Crooked Spire.

Challenge #136 Designer's Choice - Windows



Welcome back to Inkspirational. Our challenge this time has been chosen by DT member Carol, and she wants to see windows on our projects.

Please welcome our wonderful Guest designer: 

Pam

Hello!  I’m so delighted to be guesting for Inkspirational Challenges this week! I started stamping in the Spring of 1994 and haven’t looked back. Of course it was heat embossing that first enchanted me! Since then I love to color with Copics and other mediums, love all the watercoloring and watercolor techniques and when I come up with a CAS card, I’m really happy! I’m a wife to Tim, mother to 3 married daughters and gram to 17 beautiful grandchildren who love to stamp with me too!  yay! Thanks for having me!
I’d love it if you join me on social media!
