New Challenge at Inkspirational!

Hi friends!
We have a new challenge for you at Inkspirational Challenges, a word prompt:

Quite fun and different, right! Our guest designer this time is the talented Bharati and our regular team members all have wonderful samples for you. I look forward seeing what you'll create! 

At first I was a bit out of ideas with this word prompt but going though my stash gave me many ideas... I was thinking many different occupations for example... But in the end I decided to go with a sort of encouragement card with an empowering message for all us women in the work life! I think this quote from Eleanor Roosevelt is pretty awesome and after making the card I read about her career in wikipedia too so all and all this was an inspiring, educational  and fun card to make! The tea bag and sentiment stamp come from SSS and the brush stroke stamp in the background is by Marianne Design. I've inked it with rainbow colors of DI:s and sprayed some water to the stamp before stamping. I've also splattered white, black and gold paint to the card but the photo unfortunately doesn't show this very well. Well you can see the black splatters! :)

Thanks for popping by, happy crafting!

I'd like to join:

  1. A gorgeous rainbow background, Nonni ... and a fabulous quote ... the line art teabag is just so perfect with it! Hugs, Anita :)

  2. I actually have this quote on a SU is a favorite. I love how you added the tea bag and how your watercolored stamped background is so perfect for your quote and tea bag. TFS Nonni. Hugs

  3. Wow, this is gorgeous, Nonni! Jo x

  4. I have always loved that quote from Eleanor Roosevelt. Your card is fantastic. I like how you used water to soften your colors and it also looks a bit like the paper would look if a wet tea bag were placed on it! Thanks so much for playing along at CASology this week.

  6. Let's try this again (pressed 'publish' too quickly - your card got me all excited *grin*).
    An empowering quote from a powerful woman, showcased in a most striking fashion, Nonni! The vibrant colours speak to the positive influence women bring to the workforce; the tea bag pairs perfectly with the sentiment! A unique take on 'work'...and I LOVE it!

  7. I love how you've done the multicoloured brush strokes - I don't think it'd work for me! The quote is great and the teabag image goes perfectly,

  8. Love your card...that sentiment is just amazing and so true!!!

  9. Wonderful card! Love the watercolor background - a perfect complement to the tea bag image & sentiment! Thanks for playing along with us at CASology!
