OLW 30 Inspiring MindsPosted: November 25, 2010
Jennifer has a great one layer challenge this week on her blog Styles Ink. The inspiration comes from some Christmas cards designed by Walter Erhard in the 1960’s. I browsed through all Jennifer’s links and saw a card I liked, but when I sat down to stamp I discovered the card I wanted was not on the designated page and a single picture of that card was not available. Although I will go back to that card and get inspired another time, I chose the card below for my inspiration this morning.
I didn’t set out to recreate it, but it appears that is what I have done. Where Erhard’s original card had a splat shaped ornament, which looks very twinkly, I have water droplet twinkles instead. I stamped the branches in versamark and then the snowflakes in versamark and grey. I then embossed the branches with black and the snowflakes with clear. The balls were made by positioning punched circle masks over the snowflakes and then sponging the whole card with Wild Wasabi.
