1. I can sing most of the alto section of Handel's Messiah from memory.
2. I can grow garden flowers pretty darn well, but indoor plants pretty much die on me.
3. My homemade guacamole is killer. Seriously deliciously good.
There. Nothing earth shattering. Nothing life changing, but they're all mine. In fact, in the grand scheme of things, they're pretty lame, but that's okay. I can do other things too. We all can. Life is good and we are blessed. We all have different talents and that's what makes the world go 'round.
Philosophy class dismissed. Onto what we're here for. Cards. Or in my case, card. Singular. For Muse. Carol is up as GD this week and she really challenged me. That got me to thinking about my talents; first as a cardmaker, and then other kinds (hence my wonderings about yours...). You can see where I took my inspiration -- the feathers, which was most obvious to me, then, the bits of black in the sentiment and framing her focal panel.
Really imaginative, don't you think?! She's pretty talented, that Carol. And while I'm at it, and as long as the theme this week at SSS Wednesday Challenge is "Make it Colorful," this card will make an appearance there too!
I don't have any feather stamps. Not a one. They're not my 'thing.' But I wanted to play at Muse, and I wanted to get out of my comfort zone. It's good to expand horizons, don't you think? So I cut some feathers using white scraps and scraps of dp with my Silhouette. Just pulled colors that appealed to my eye. The bow is from AE, and the more I use it, the more I love it. If you look around the edge of the white panel, you'll see some piercings. That's also from AE; doesn't cut, just pierces, and was a RAK from Emily (thanks!!). A TT sentiment stamped in Versafine, a scrap of black for a mat, and Michaels white for the base and main panel. Hope Carol likes it. For now, I've got things to get done so will get moving. Happy dances everyone...don't forget to leave your talents in the comments section.
