Hard to Find

Inspiration was certainly not Hard to Find at this week's site for the Inspiration Challenge.

I used My Stamp Box Rough Copy alphabet and a small star stamp.Copics and stickles (gotta get some shine!)

For this one, I focused on how the sharks fit together (isn't that cool?). This Papertrey sentiment fits into itself quite well,  but I also wanted a pop of colour so I stamped the orange one first and then worked out from there.

Finally, you know how I love a great rainbow. I used a clear stamp from The Stamps of Life that is a line of circles and curved it to make the rainbow. I really wanted some texture on this card, and my initial idea was to use pipe cleaners but I thought it would probably end up looking like Grade one art, or a bunch of colourful dead caterpillars.  I opted for crystal effects to create 'beads' of texture on each coloured circle instead. The sentiment is from LawnFawn.


  1. WOW I love that rainbow card! M x

  2. Me Too! Stamps of Life must have retired the line of circles, however, which is God's punishment of me for planning to copy that rainbow.
    Brilliant idea again, Ardyth. You do such a good job of making seemingly-simple elements stunning.


  3. Bahb - I don't know if you check back here, but this stamp is still available at Stamps of Life - Borders 4 Me. Hope that helps!

  4. I love how you find inspiration everywhere you look!! These are all fabulous but I especially like the dimension you create on the third one with the crystal effects. (And I'm always a sucker for a rainbow!)

  5. Can you hear me squealing? I so love this rainbow. I so love it. Frameable art! Wow Ardyth. You so rock.
