Top Picks #56 - beach photo

Current challenge HERE.

Thank you to all those who entered in our beach/girl/balloon photo inspired challenge earlier in the month. What a beautiful display of work! Here are our top picks:

We loved Jasleen’s unique design and her rich colors give a wonderful base for her beautiful hand drawn silhouette. We also like how the balloons have an off-the-edge look.


We love Deepti’s use of the scored lines in the background and feel that her masking and color of flowers capture the 'balloon' image from our inspiration photo in a clever way.

Laura E

We think that Laura’s heart-shaped, water-colored balloons are truly delightful and it is evident that this card is filled with personality and love.

Congratulations to our top picks!

Challenge 57 - Bloom

This time we have a new style of challenge at Inkspirational - the Word Prompt. Your challenge is to make a project inspired by the word 'Bloom'. 

We have a wonderful guest designer with us and it is: 

Greetings from England, my name is Julie and I love to craft. I started many years ago making my dollies clothes, but I have been known to quilt, paint watercolours, scrapbook, as well as my latest passion, cardmaking. When I was working as a Primary School teacher I loved to inspire the kids so most of my crafty time was with them, but since having to retire due to ill health I have indulged my passion and crafted for myself. I started to blog last year as I initially wanted to keep a record of my creations, then the bug bit and I started entering challenges and then become part of a couple of DTs. I was honoured to be asked to be GD this week at Inkspirations.

Please pop over to Julie's blog and leave her a comment. 

We will be choosing  a top pick/s from this challenge and inviting one entrant to join us as a Guest Designer.
