Pinspired #3 and Hello to 3 more new members!



I have three new members, which I want to welcome to my blog today!
Heute habe ich gleich drei neue Mitglieder ("Verfolger"), die ich recht herzlich auf meinem Blog begruessen moechte!


They are all from Germany - my home country and all of them have fantastic blogs, which I have linked. I want to welcome you with this piece of art, that I saw recently in the Newark Museum in New Jersey. It is from the African artist El Anatsui, which creates these stunning pieces out of scrap metal, such as liquor bottle caps. I linked a slide show of some of his works from the New York Times to his name and from there you can get the New York Times article, if you are interested to read about him.

Alle meine neuen Mitglieder sind aus Deutschland - meiner Heimat und alle haben tolle blogs, die verlinkt sind. Wilkommen, neue Mitglieder, es freut mich, dass ihr zu mir gefunden habt. Das Photo von dem Kunstwerk ist von dem AfrikanischenKuenstler El Anatsui, der diese aus Altmetall herstellt, z. B. aus Kronenkorken. Sein Name ist mit einer Diashow von der New York Times verlinkt und von dort kommt man zu einem Artikel, der zufaelligerweise am Wochenender veroeffentlicht wurde. 





But now - back to card making.
Zurueck zum Karten basteln.



That pinspired inspiration photo really inspired me. I immediately thought about a card that I learned to make in last years Clean & Simple class. It is a window card and has that rosette glued onto the inside of the card. the  rostte is made of 6 1 inch circles. From a 7th circle you cut a triangle and use this as your folding guide.

Das Pinspired Photo hat mich gleich an eine Karte erinnert, die ich letztes Jahr in der Clean & Simple Klasse gelernt habe. Die Karte hat ein Fenster und die Rosette wird auf die Innenseite der Karte geklebt. Die Rosette macht man aus 6 1 inch Kreisen. Aus einem 7. Kreis macht man ein Dreieck und benuetzt das als Schiene um die Kreise zu falten.

I also entered this card in the Just Add Ink challenge #152- Just Add Hearts!





Other materials: Background stamp Hero Arts - Tiny Heart Pattern (H3786), Simon Says Holiday Shapes Heart dies, circle punches - 1 nd 2 inch diameter, sentiment: amuse - animal wishes and a pearl popped up on a foam cushion

What a stunning card - I love that flower front and centre, and your pink and red colour combination is a favourite of mine. Cute curved sentiment too.

Thank you for sharing your creation with us at Just Add Ink this week.
