INVENTORY CHALLENGE NO. 71, Inspired by spring



Happy Friday dear Friends,                    (la traduction française suit le texte anglais)
If I truly want to be inspired by spring, I cannot look out the window this morning, we had a snowstorm yesterday that left us with 6 inches of this white stuff on the ground!  Christina, our team and I are very happy to welcome you to our 71st Inventory Challenge, featuring SPRING.
Bon vendredi, chères amies,
Je n'ai pu chercher inspiration du printemps en regardant par la fenêtre ce matin, nous avons eu une petite tempête hier qui nous a laissé un tapis blanc de quelque 6 pouces. Christina, notre équipe et moi même, vous accueuillons ce matin, à notre 71e défi, sur le printemps!


 For my card, I chose images from the Butterfly dream collection of last year, Tilda with rubber boots, and stone pathway. My images were stamped on Cryogen white, using the mask technique, which will be my monthly tutorial for Scrapbook ta vie... OMG, as much as I love this paper, I had been using X-pressblending card lately, and had quite a surprise when I colored my images. It is true to say that copics do not react the same on both papers... I am not totally satisfied with Tilda's curly hair, but this is it. I also had to practice shading with prismacolor, I was totally surprised at how different the pencils react on different papers... the pleasures of Experiencing! Enough of my bla bla, on to my card.

J,ai choisi pour ma carte les étampes de la collection magnolia  Butterfly dream de 2011, notamment Tilda with rubber boots, et le sentier de pierres. J'ai utilisé la technique du masque pour imprimé mes images, sur papier Cryogen white. Autant où j'adore l'effet irisé de ce papier, autant j'ai eu de la difficulté à colorier. Je ne l,avais pas employé dernièrement, et l,encre se comporte très différemment que sur le X-press blending card. Je suis un peu déçue du résultat des cheveux bouclés  de Tilda... Je voulais apporter une note de chaleur à mes copics, alors j'ai ombragé avec du prismacolor. Là aussi,  le cryogen se comporte très différement. Assez de blabla... à ma carte.



I realize I had quite a big image, and was looking for a different layout... My sweet and very talented friend Iulia, presented me with a perfect solution, a fancy fold card and a perfect layout for such a big image.thank you, dear Iulia.
Je me suis rendue compte en cours de réalisation, que mon image était très grande, et que le sketch que j,avais prévu, ne convenait justement pas. C'est en visitant  ma talentueuse et chère amie  Iulia que j'ai puisé mon inspiration, d'une carte à pli  irrégulier. Merci ma belle Iulia!





I used the magnificient PION design papers,Fairytale of spring 2011, that I received as a gift from a dear friend;  ... and had a stroke putting the scissors on the 12 X 12 sheet. I left the paper on my table, just to face the fact I would eventually have to cut them LOL...If I play with all other papers, with these ones, I take myself a bit more seriously... but there is no use leaving them in my stack.

Mes papiers sont de la collection PION Design, Fairytale of spring 2011; je les ai reçus en cadeaux d'une amie très chère et je fais une attaque chaque fois que je coupe dans ces papiers. Je les ai apprivoisés toute la semaine... les laissant sur ma table. Si je joue aisément avec le papier, je me prends plus au sérieux lorsque je mets les ciseaux dans ceux ci!

I hope you were inspired by spring, and that you will have fun creating this weekend. Please take a moment to visit my very talented teamates, and get more inspiration.

J,espere que le printemps vous inspirera à créer des jolis projets tout au long de la fin de semaine. Je vous invite à prendre un moment et vous rendre sur les blogues de mes talentueuses co-équipières, vous y puiserez certeraiment plus d'inspiration.

Good Morning, good morning, it's great to wake up late, good morning, good morning to you! I only wish you could hear me singing this pretty song to you this morning. You have the snow and we are socked in with fog and rain. But rain or snow, we are here to create and applaud our dear friends as they create from their hearts. You my dear friend, your creations spring forth from you heart. Like the card you posted yesterday and now this one - I can see you living in this world, peddling away on your bike with your little dog. Your card is gorgeous and I love it when you experiment around with different techniques. I am so glad our paths crossed Danielle and your card today is full of beautiful Spring.
