Card Design: Ike's World Challenge #5...Picture Inspiration

Helloooooooooooooooo and happy Tuesday to you all!  It is time for the latest challenge over at Ike's World Challenges.  The theme for Challenge #5 is picture inspiration.  You can join in with a creation using any kind of medium or style but remember that in order to qualify to win the prize you MUST use an Ike's Art image.  If you don't already have an image and would like to purchase one, check out all the awesome ones available in the store by clicking HERE.  Ike has an amazing and varied selection to choose from and you are sure to find something to suit your needs.
Here is the wonderful picture that we took our inspiration from...

(Clicking on the watermarked image will take you the i-stock website.)
Check out what I made this week... 
General Information:
  • I kept the layout pretty simple since the image is so detailed and I wanted it to be the showpiece of the card.

FRON
T

Digital Image:
  • Cuckoo Clock:  This spectacular and very detailed work of art is available in the store.  Currently, you can find it on the main page under 'My Latest Designs'.  Clicking on the watermark below will take you to the main page of the digital section.

Digital Sentiment:
  • I just created a sentiment on the front to tie in with the image and lead in to the inside sentiment.
Embellishment: 
  • The little 'rhinestones' are actually meant to be ironed on to fabric but with a little glue, they work just as well on paper. 

INSIDE

Digital Sentiment:
  • Once again I rely on Paulette for having the perfect sentiment to convey my message.  Life is just too short to sit back and wait for it to happen.  You need to get off your butt, get active and get involved before you find that life has passed you by.  This is another great freebie I picked up over at Create with TLC.  Click HERE to go to Paulette's blog and HERE to go to the store.  Psst...this one is still a freebie and you can click HERE if you are interested in grabbing it.  Just make sure you leave Paulette a thank you if you do so.
OVERALL
Paper Products:
  • Card base: Michael's Recollection's Cardstock, white.
  • Designer Paper:  Fall palette geometric paper (front & inside)-- Recollection's All Seasons Paper Pad.
Challenges I am hoping to enter...
Other challenges I have decided to enter, after publishing... (sorry but in order to save me some time, I am just including the hyperlink as opposed to setting up the name and linking it to the challenge blog.  Every second I save these days counts.)
    
What will you create using one of Ike's wonderful images?  Pop over and play along with us anytime during the next two weeks over at Ike's World Challenges. You can find out everything you need to know in order to play, by heading to the challenge blog.  I've linked the logo below to take you there.  While you are over there, please be sure to check out the incredible creations offered up by some of my fellow DT members and be sure to pop over there again next week when the second team's projects are showcased to help inspire you.


Until next time,

Gorgeous card, Lisa! Love that fabulous image and great colours. And that sentiment is perfect! TFS

Hi Lisa: I love how detailed your write up of this post is. I could get completely distracted by the beauty of your card if I wasn't careful, and not read the post, but alas I know better with your posts. Your posts tell a great story of the company you are promoting or designing for. I enjoy reading each and every one. Even the teams I am on with you, I learn something new each time from what you share in your posts. Thanks for that and what a joy you must be to the companies you work for and to the people who come to adore your art! Your piece today is just awesome! I really thought this art was a photograph...I could barely believe it was colored by hand. Your coloring Lisa is picture perfect. The shading is just great and the choice of colors...well you must own every color on this earth and know just how and when to use them. It is so striking but incredibly so because of your own Lisa Developed Sentiment! It is just so cool what you added to this card...just perfect. I love the font, love the words and how it highlights your art. geesh, there is so much I want to say about every piece I see...is there that much room in the comment section???? xox
