Inkspirational Challenge #316 - Designer's Choice - Spotlight Technique

Welcome back to Inkspirational; glad you're joining us.

For our Designer's Choice Challenge, our lovely Pia invites us to use the SPOTLIGHT TECHNIQUE on our cards/projects.  You're likely familiar with this technique, but just as an in-a-nutshell refresher, at the basic level it involves 'spotlighting', with colour, portions of a black and white image. Of course, many variations exist in showcasing what you're spotlighting creative with your choices. 

As always, the Inkspirational designers have wonderful inspiration for you:

Carol - running late! 

Amazing cards, all - and we know yours will be as well.

The Link will be open until Friday, May 31st @11:59pm (GMT)

We'll be back  on Saturday, May 25 with a Reminder Post and Top Picks for Challenge #315.

Inkspirational Challenge #315 - Seasonal

Welcome back to Inkspirational; thank you for joining us.

For the next two weeks, we invite you to draw inspiration from our SEASONAL-themed Challenge.


Here's a reminder of what this challenge entails:
We invite you to consider the four seasons - Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter - and create cards/projects based on occasions +  images that are quite 'specific' to those seasons.
For instance:
  • Spring: Mother's Day, Easter, flowers, etc.
  • Summer: summer vacations, school's out, weddings, beaches, Fourth of July, Canada Day, etc.
  • Fall: harvest, Thanksgiving, Halloween, Remembrance Day, etc.
  • Winter: Christmas, Hanukkah, winter activities.
These are just a few ideas to get you started; the team also has some fabulous inspiration for you.

Summer Vacation

Winter - Christmas

Spring + Mother's Day


Looking forward to seeing your SEASONAL cards/projects in the gallery.

The Link will be open until Friday, May 17 @ 11:59pm (GMT)

We will be back on Saturday, May 10th with a Reminder Post and Top Picks for Challenge #314.
