Guest Designer Post - Inkspirational

Hi Friends,

I'm thrilled to be joining the ladies over at Inkspirational Challenges as Guest Designer for the latest challenge, Cue Card below!

I have to admit I racked my brains for ages trying to come up with something unique to use from my stash. I couldn't find any play-related stamp sets although, following some online research / window shopping, there's now plenty on my wish list! 

In the end I decided to go with a musical theme and some rather inky and not in my usual 'Clean and Simple' style backgrounds. Uniko recently released some music related stamps and I'd also purchased a few Visible Image sets at Christmas, which I was keen to ink up again so here goes:

Both cards use the 'Music Speaks' set by Visible Image with a 'You Rock' sentiment and musical notes from Uniko. The background on the first card is created by 'smooshing' Distress Inks, whereas the second one is a Brusho based creation! 

I hope you like what I've created for the challenge and you'll feel inspired to play along too. I don't doubt that there'll be some spectacular ideas from the regular design team HERE and I'd like to thank them for inviting me to join them today! 

Happy Crafting and thanks for your visit today!



  1. Great to see you as GD at Inkspirational and your two musical cards are gorgeous! Love the smooshed and brusho backgrounds with those stunning VI stamps :) I hope you are having a sunny weekend!

  2. I think to play music is a great interpretation of this word prompt and one I confess I didn’t think of! I do love both cards – it’s great seeing the different colourways and techniques. Your smooshing looks almost psychedelic – great for the rock theme. The blue of your second card is gorgeous and I love how you placed the guitar off the edge. Thanks for being a wonderful Guest Designer at Inkspirational

  3. Two fantastic cards! Love the music interpretation for the 'play' prompt! Great vivid design with the fun guitar! Congrats on the guest DT position at Inkspirational!
