June Inspiration by Carla

My Own Craft Room

Hello Crafters, Carla here.  Today, I would like to share my inspirational card with you

This has got to be the most special composition for a card, I've done recently. Yes, I know the name of the Cute as a Button image is Love My Copics, but I love my pencils! Getting to color her with Prismacolor Pencils and Prismacolor Bender and a bit of silver from a Gelly Roll pen was fun. Planning her craft room was more fun using the craft table and room grid by Scrappers Delight. The bits and pieces were taken from the Mother's Day 2011 digikit and it was all merged in the Craft Artist 2 program.

Ok, so why is this composition so special. Well, it's because she could be me (she's somewhat younger and has a lot more hair). I feel so fortunate to be a retired art teacher, which has lead me to numerous crafting activities. Retirement could have been a boring depressing time. I'm lucky to have my creative hobbies and a wonderful room dedicated to doing them.

I love the challenge of new images to design for. I belong to several design teams, which has greatly improved my coloring skills. I love exploring techniques and styles as well as enjoy making friends around the globe.

I create cards as well as framed art and canvases. Some of my work is for sale locally. I recently received an honorable mention for a piece I created with an image from Aurora Wings. My work has been published in a few magazines.

I love to inspire others with good quality crafts. I hope you will share your projects at Cute as a Button stamps Facebook Page and Cute as a button stamps Facebook Group.

There is a "For the Boys" challenge you should enter at Cute as a Button Stamps.

I hope my card has inspired you to participate in the challenges.
