Joanne Sharpe *Day 3*

Here is our last inspiration piece from Joanne. Such a lovely sketch just brimming with all of her charm and style: art © joanne sharpe 2011
I love her doodles, border, color choices.... yep, I love it ALL!
Here is my take:




The flower, Penny Black 4183K Sparkle, was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored with Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Stamper's Big Brush Markers. I stamped the image twice, once on the Spellbinders Die Cut Labels 16 and once onto another piece of white paper. The flower was then cut out and mounted with dimensional adhesive onto the die cut piece. After coloring, the die cut piece was distressed with Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink. Background distressed with Dusty Concord and Walnut Stain Distress Ink. Finally, I flicked the purple background using ink from black and purple Stamper's Big Brush Markers which were colored onto an acrylic block, spritzed with water, and then picked up with a paintbrush for the flicking. (hhmmm... is "flick" the technical term for making a big mess? LOL) Flower center is a Candi Dot.

BIG thanks to Joanne for allowing me to share her artwork here on "Inspired by..." this week. She has LOADS of talent and it has been an honor. Thanks to all of you, too, for your visits and comments. Before I leave ya for the weekend, here are all of the hints I've given you so far this week about my big announcement: And when, you ask, will I reveal my BIG secret?? On Monday... can you wait that long?? :) Oh, okay, I'll give you one more little hint....this just might be something you can WIN.... Hope you have an awesome, creative weekend. Happy stamping! HUGS!

reen said...

I'm just terrible at putting clues together and coming up with what they mean, I can guess what each one means but and curious to see what's up. And that prize is sweet.

And your card, as always is beautiful.

Purple is my all time favorite color! LOVE LOVE LOVE the cards....I do adore flowers too! And when I saw the suitcase...I fell out of my chair! Jill, I think these are one of my favorite cards so far...no wait... I love them all!!!!
have an awesome weekend!

Jill your cards are so vibrant and alive - I love your style! I'm really struggling with your clues - is is that you are going to be making some DVD classes of things you love, and that the style will be 'out of the box' (as opposed to coming in a box); it will include mementoes that you love to make with Tim HOlz' Vagabond! I think I got all of the clues!
Have a great day.
Hugs, Anne Pask.

Peet said...

Stunning cards this week< Jill! Love them all!!

Kelley said...

Love both the inspiration and inspired cards.

Okay, the clues. A DVD with you teaching something you love that is nonconformal using mementos.

I don't want the weekend to go by too quickly, but I want Monday to come so I can find out the big secret! :)
