INKspired Artist's Blog Hop # 20


Happy Sunday. Wow I'm excited to be sharing the 20th Inspired Artist's blog hop with you, if you have arrived from the lovely Maree McIntosh then you will have already seen some of the amazing talent, but if this is your first stop then HELLO. To celebrate our 20th Blog Hop, Teneale has kindly offered a stamp set to a lucky blogger who comments on all creations this week, so make sure a leave a comment n each blog as you hop around. Winner will be drawn on the 19th July, so make sure your've left all comments by that day! This week's card was created using another inspirational sketch from my super talented and amazing up-line Teneale Williams.







This Week's sketch



For my first 2015 Christmas in July project I was asked to create a masculine card so I felt this sketch was just prefect for the brief. I must admit I really struggle to do Male cards but by including a strip of black from the Color Me Irresistible Specialty Designer Series Paper I was able to add the masculine touch. I also add a piece of the Merry moments DSP for a Christmasy feel. It was exciting to see a special Christmas Section come back into the 2015 Catalogue. 


Here's What I came up with!



Next up is the very talented Renee Lynch,




Thanks for Stopping By!
