Pinspired Challenge #5


Life is good - I have 2 new members, who joined my blog - yeahhh! I am always so excited when I see somebody new! 

HELLO and WELCOME

and 

I hope you continue to like the cards I make and come by and visit! (I of course had to visit their blogs -both are linked - and wow - what fun and creative cards I discovered there! )

I have a welcome picture for you:



It is from the African artist El Anatsui, which creates these stunning pieces out of scrap metal, such as liquor bottle caps. I recently discovered him in the Newark Museum and showed the piece of art from there in a previous blog post. Funny, that there is now an exhibit of quite a few of his pieces in the Brooklyn Museum. Of course I had to go there and look at them. It is very impressive and definitively worthwhile to see. Perhaps you like it too.

Time to play again !

Thanks to Kelly  - the queen of Quatrefoil  - I now own a Papertrey Quatrefoil die, that I thought would be great to use for the Pinspired Challenge #5



                                                          




It is quite tedious to put in all those little die cuts -I guess Kelly has more patience than I have.....or perhaps she has some tricks, but eventually I managed to make them stay put. So here is my interpretation of the picture:



The sentiment is Hero Arts Sending Smiles Messages.

Love this card. Wanting to do something similar with a honeycomb, but have been putting it off, because of the tedious piecing. Your card was worth the work !!!

Wonderful - love how you kept the frame white. I told Kelly she should get a commission from PTI ;)

Kim M said...

Great card! Love that die. Love how you share your love of art with everyone. I love going to The National Gallery when I visit Ottawa, ON. It's all very inspiring and I love to soak it all up. :-)

Beautiful card, Cornelia. Love all the bright colors you have used and it looks really very pretty. You have perfectly captured the inspiration picture on your card,Love it. :-)

Kelly Griglione said...

Oh YAY, I LOVE YOUR CARD!!! It turned out so well : ) I did find that having a ton of adhesive made it go a lot quicker. Otherwise you're always going back to secure this one and that one. But what a wonderful surprise to see as I was catching up on blog posts. You totally made my day!!

Hallo Cornelia
Ich weiß nicht, wie weit ich kommen werde aber ich fang jetzt einfach mal an. Ich bin nicht verreist, war immer brav zuhause und habe es dennoch nicht geschafft alle zu besuchen! :-(
Diese Stanze habe ich schon auf einem anderen Blog gesehen. Wie es scheint, ist sie sehr vielseitig und man kann tolle Sachen damit machen.
Super, wie du das Bild interpretiert hast. So schön bunt!
