RIC #33 and hello to many new members

First I want to give a warm welcome to all my new members! I am so happy you joined my blog. Thank you so much.

Andrea (Die Kreative)

And as usually I have a welcome picture for my new blog members:

The artist is Nathan Sawaya, who is a New York-based artist who builds three-dimensional sculptures and mosaics from popular everyday items and is best known for his work with LEGO bricks. Two years ago there was an exhibit in a small museum nearby, which was just fabulous! Perhaps I'll show more of his works  in future posts...


But now, back to card making....

Here is the inspiration photo for the RIC #33


And here is my take on it. I tried to incorporate the background and the outfit into one card. Since the background has some subtle pinks and blueish grays on it I put some splatters of similar colors over the card and stamped the sentiment on grey cardstock. The little black bow is represented by the black strip.

I am also entering this card into the Simon says challenge - Happy Birthday

Materials: Hero Arts Heart Felt Messages (Cl150), Stampin' up background stamp, memory box pearls

Love the graphic and modern vibe, Cornelia! The splatter adds a fun element to the design, too! I know about Nathan's Lego artwork and had checked out his website once in a while as my family are huge Lego fans ( only if you see my basement...). I'd love to see more of his Lego pics, please! So glad that you join the fun with us at Runway Inspired Challenge!

Forgot to add, thanks for sharing the wonderful creation by Nathan Sawaya. My 5 year old, is a ardent lego addict I should say, and he liked it very much.
