Default Inspired by challenge #3, June 2014

It is time for challenge #3 and this month our inspiration comes from Bootsie, aka Rhonda!

Rhonda is a scrapbooker as well as cardmaker and it was easy to be inspired by her albums. She is also a girl after my own heart as she likes to use older supplies which I have a lot of.

I did 3 samples this month, 2 I like, 1 I'm not so sure of. The idea for the first photo came from this post. She stamped an entire sheet of stamps several times to create background paper. I decided to do the same idea with stencils. I used the stitches template first with my homemade sprays and then added the doodling template which I sponged with brown ink. I should have done this on kraft paper, so I decided to brush it with peach reinker watered down. I then made the card using a kraft card base. The embellies came from an old card kit. The sentiment is from the greetings and labels stamp and die set. It is one of those cards that looks better in person.

The second card comes from pics in this album. Ben, my son in the Navy, loves penguins so I decided to make him the second card. I used the penguin small stamp, Citrus Cardmaker's Pack and computer printed the sentiment.

The last card was inspired by a pocket card Rhonda made here. I did a twist on her card, mine has an inside as well. I again used Citrus Cardmaker's Pack, definitions and words ephemera book and the Friendship Sarabook. I embellished it with purple jewel and jewel border Dazzles as well as purple fibers (no longer available).

Take a look through her albums, find what inspires you and post them here. This is a month long challenge not part of the weekly challenge prize, just for fun and to get to know our fellow board members

Great cards as always Penny. I have never been able to use the books of words and quotes. It never looks right when I use them. You did a great job with them on that pocket card.
