Challenge #150 Word Prompt- Gift



Welcome back to Inkspirational (staying with you all through the holiday period, btw!). This week we want to see your creations prompted by the word 'gift'.

Please welcome our Guest Designer :

Valentyna 





My name is Valentyna.  I am a happy mom of two smart kids, who keep me active and busy all the time. When I am not a mom, I am a piano teacher. I like teaching and enjoy it for 20 years. As we moved to Canada I fell in love with paper crafting. Stamps, inks, die cuts, embellishments are wonderful to use, but the paper is the more exciting thing and it is my favorite. I share my creation at Flourishtina.com. Please, stop by sometime. I will be happy to see you


Now for our Design Team: 



Shauna






The tag Nonni made matches to a Christmas gift she wrapped for her sister. :)

Top Picks Sparkler Photo

Current challenge HERE.

Thank you to all those who played along in our sparkler / fall photo challenge!  We love seeing all the fall inspired entries!


These are our top picks:

We love how she imitated the hanging leaves from the photo into her card! This is such a creative card with the added dimension, beautiful detail, and splashed background!


We love the artsy look of her leaves and the dramatic, graphic background! Her cascade of vibrant, realistic alcohol-inked leaves make for a striking fall themed card.


Lula
Her mixed media tag is rich with color, texture, and details that mirror several elements of the inspiration photo.  It is amazing how she transformed this 'small' canvas to an eye-catching work of art!
