Look at this sketch, do you like it? Yes, okay then make it up and enter 'Our Creative Corner' Challenge this week, and be in to win a chance to be spotlighted as our Top Talent; there are changes in the wind, we are in the process of finalising the format to best present our winner and make it more special.
So stay tuned and participate and you could be our next special person.
Our Hostess this week is Chris-( Dot Dot Stamping Designs).
There are just two criteria for our challenge:
1. Make a card for a male (it can be a male of any age....)
2. Use the sketch below.3. (Optional) If you wish to, you can also add an extra challenge, which is to use a Monochromatic colour scheme.
I have two pet hates in card-making, one as you all know is CAS and I am not going to burden you with my thoughts again on this genre and the other is Masculine cards.
It is a privilege for me to be part of the team on OCC so when I am given a task then one must perform, so perform I did.....whether you are inspired remains to be seen!
I called on TH.... I know....me, the very person who expounded not so long ago that I am not one of his greatest fans!
Well I called upon him Big Time, and so I have to recant and allow myself to admit that I am a little bitty fan now.
I used the light bulbs and time pieces to symbolise how my 'dearest one' lights up my life! I gave it to him for his Birthday a few weeks ago, but I think the symbolism was lost on him, or he did not like it because his response was simply:"Oh, you made me a card!" I beamed "Yes, do you like it?" "Mmmm it's different." So I thought, yeah me....different; what a flaky term, he could have used the word unique, then I would have felt unparalleled, individualistic and oddly enough happier.
Now I am asking myself where is the symbolism; is it the light bulb or is it in my individualism!
The French Lattice is a 'Cheery Lynn' die cut, and it is coloured with Alcohol Inks on Glossy card stock.
Now all I have to say is, if you want to see more, pop over to OCC and light up our lives, check up on our Guest Designer this week; Sandra and of course the Teamies.
Have a great weekend.
