INVENTORY CHALLENGE no. 68...





Happy Friday dear friends!
This week our Inventory challenge's theme is Hearts and more hearts... and a special one for me, on how the web can be a beautiful space for special encounters. When we put the list of challenges up, I knew I had to color tilda under a rain of heart, now knowing her story. Here is how it starts. I google her and happened to end up on Creashop Duymelot site in the Netherlands; she is available for purchase and I try to open my account with no success. I e-mail the webshop site, and get help form a lovely lady by the name of Astrid. With her help I give my order and get my stamp very fast. When tilda got safely home  I advised  Astrid, to learn that her shop bought this special edition Tilda when she learned that she has breast cancer. Honestly, I fell off my chair... I became clear to me that I would dedicate  and send my card to Astrid, and tell you the story behind my project. As we are all woman, and subject to this terrible thing that cancer is, lets all join in thoughts and have a very special one  for Astrid as she underwent her second chemo treatment on tuesday. yesterday, I read that she already had a new look...

Bon vendredi chères amies.
Le thème de notre Inventory Challenge cette semaine est Hearts and more hearts. Derrière  mon projet cette semaine, il y a une histoire bien particulière. Elle illustre bien à quel point le web est un espace particulier. Lorsque j'ai dressé la liste de nos défis, et j'ai sélectionné le thème d'aujourd,hui, j,avais en tête une étampe Magnolia bien particulière, que je venais tout juste de commander. Tilda sous une pluie de coeur affichait non disponible depuis un bout, étant donné qu'elle était une édition spéciale et qu'on pouvait se la procurer uniquement auprès d'une boutique en ligne de la Hollande je surveillais régulièrement si la boutique s'était réapprovisionnée. Un bon soir, la chance était au rendez-vous, mais je ne parvenais pas à créer mon compte. J,ai donc communiqué avec la boutique pour obtenir de l,aide; la gentille Astrid m'a aidé, et j'ai pu compléter mon achat. Lorsque Tilda est arrivé à bon port, j'ai envoyé un courriel à la boutique Creashop Duymelot; dans sa réponse Astrid m,a appris que sa boutique avait fait l,achat de cette Tilda au moment où elle a appris qu'elle était atteinte d'un cancer du sein. Je me suis effondrée sur ma chaise... et j'ai su à ce moment que ma carte prendrait la direction de la Hollande, et qu'elle serait faite pour Astrid. Nous sommes toutes des femmes potentiellement sujet à cette terrible maladie. Je vous demande de prendre un moment et d,envoyer des ondes de courage de l'autre côté de l'Atlantique, Astrid recevait son 2e traitement mardi... Hier, j,ai lu un courriel qui me disait qu'elle avait changé sa coiffure...

Now, on to my card.
Allons voir cette carte maintenant.




I have stamped Tilda on x-press blending card, and colored her with my copics. Then, I had no idea of what to do next, so, I went for an inspirational trip on the web, I ended up on  Mariannes Papiverden 's blog,  I invite you to visit her, she is a super talented lady and does magnificient work. I was inspired by the irregular folds of her cards, and what to do then, just presented itself. I used my cricut to make this wonderful frame, and it,s shadow, that I sprayed with goosebumps.I also used this little technique with irredescent embossing powder, around the frame and the paper to give volume;  I used the beautiful papers by Fancy Pants, Love story, got my cheery lynn favourite die cut, heart border, flowers and ribbon, et voilà...

J,ai étampé Miss Tilda sur x-press blending card, et coloriée avec les copics. Puis, je n,avais plus d'inspiration... dans ce cas, je voyage sur le web à la recherche du déclic! Je me suis retrouvée chez Marianne en Norvège, je vous invite à la visiter, elle est super talentueuse, et publie des projets de toute beauté. Je me suis inspirée de ses maintes cartes à plis irrégulier, et j'ai vu comment j'encadrerais Tilda. Je me suis servie de ma cricut pour couper ce magnifique encadrement, je l'ai encré et embossé, et j'ai vaporisé avec du goosebump l'arrière du cadre. J'ai aussi utilisé cette petite technique d'embossage avec poudre iridescent sur le bord de tous mes papiers, pour donner un cachet et du volume. Mes papiers sont de Fancy pants, Love story; et ma découpe favorite de cheery lynn, des fleurs et un ruban et voila...
