For today I am writing on behalf of Make My Monday. I got this image from Pinterest and thought it would make a fantastic card challenge. Here is my interpretation of the pin, enjoy!
|Lots to see of the sea.|
|The magic of the inspiration photo led me to |
create such an elaborate design.
|For me, the texture of the inspiration photo is |
what makes it so remarkable. I provided rhinestones, textured and shiny
paper was used to achieve texture.
|Detail showing the card in the light. Lots of shine but not too much color.|
only blues and browns which is consistent to the inspiration photo.
I know I talk about children's books all the time. Well this is no exception, for the book I am about to reference is probably one of my favorites of all time. The book is called Flotsam by David Wiesner and it is about a boy who discovers a camera washed up on shore. Curious, he opens the camera to expose the film inside and waits at the one hour photo lab to develop the film. He discovers are pictures of a magical land under the sea filled with strange and familiar sea creatures, walking islands, and alien civilizations.
What makes this book unique is that it doesn't have any words. This allows the child (and adult) to create their own story. My daughter told a different story every time she 'read' the book. Illustrations are mind blowingly gorgeous. Even as an adult it is a must 'read'. So go to the library and check it out. I know you will be as amazed as I was when I first saw it.
Well I think it is time to get off my soapbox and say goodnight. Thank you so much for stopping by to visit and if you want to say hello that would great too. Take care everyone and I hope this message finds each and everyone of you well. See you soon and happy stamping!
All the best,
