Inkspirational Challenges - Cheer


Our new challenge at Inkspirational  is to be inspired by the word: Cheer. 

I made my DT card back  in the summer, as I wanted to give it to my daughter who had passed a professional qualification.  I made the moon and clouds with homemade stencils and ink and gel pen and the stamps were from different sets.

Inkspirational Challenges - For Boys or Men


Our new challenge at Inkspirational  was chosen by Pia , and it is:
My 14-year-old son has been part of a football team since he was about 7 years old, and it's run by Alan. I thought for his special birthday, Alan deserved a trophy, so I cut him one using my Silhouette Cameo and personalised it with his name and age. It's actually quite a small card! Hard to see on the photo, but it's silver mirror card on black. 

I'd like to enter:
Make My Monday  Outdoor Sport - I hope it's acceptable for the challenge, although from the trophy you can't really tell it's outdoor!

My daughter asked me to make a card for her to give to a colleague who is having time off for cancer treatment. She described the woman as an 'earth mother', who's very nurturing of the team, bakes for them and keeps chickens at home. She asked for no sentiment on the front. 

Inspired by the chickens, I found some images online and traced them in Silhouette Studio, welding on the curved ground and cutting it electronically.  For te background I used homemade sun and cloud stencils. I distressed some patterned paper and doodled faux stitches. Finally, I added a resin heart.
