So April is winding down and it is my last week of hosting the Crazy4Challenges blog. This week I decided to do an inspiration challenge, I choose a piece of artwork from work because I always thought is was pretty, if you zoom in you will see that there are other colours that aren’t noticed right away, and gasp….. this isn’t a pop up card 😱
I had a hard time getting the effect that I was aiming for, after several attempts I gave up and tried something new, and this is what I came up with.

I have a really busy week, so I had to pull a card from my photo archive. I also have been working on a really crazy card that I can’t post quite yet, but when you see how much work was put into It you will understand where my time has been going. anyway, this card uses one of my favourite old techniques, it is called Reinker Spread, as it uses die ink pad refills to colour in the image, it is a kind of water colour but you have to trust how it will turn out as it does get out of your control how the water moves the ink around.
I have a bit of an oldie today, I made this card a few years back for our local Fall Fair. I entered in one of the contest and won the first place ribbon. I have posted some 3d roses cards before but I did add a little bit more detail to this post. Some of the ideas for this card I learned when I was a Stampin Up demonstrator from Stampin Connection, the Roses were a big hit back in 2011 but I really have no idea who the original creator is, the same with the method on how to make the tag. I thought I would share as both elements are fun and easy and you may have the same or similar tools at home to create your own 3D Roses card.

This is a special post, this post is part of a blog hop that is in tribute to Joanne Grzelak, she was a member of the Crazy4Challenges blog group before I was asked to join, and even though I didn’t get the privilege to know her personally after viewing some of her work I felt I’d like to pay my respects to this very talented lady by joining in this blog hop. We had a few options to choose from and I chose to use one of her cards as inspiration to make my card. After looking through her blog I found this card that she posted on Saturday, May 9, 2015, that she named “The Crazies Appreciate Teachers”
This is my take on Joanne’s Card

I can’t get enough of these 3-D roses, they make a card really special, and this was a card for a very special girl, my daughter. This was a card I made for her quite a few years back and it is still a favorite.
