Wheely Interesting

Kathy's dare this week...

So, on to this week and for my dare I'd like you to make cards with
wheels, not actually made with wheels, you can still use card and paper ;-), so you don't need to go and steal the ones from the car or the kids' bikes and write a message on them!
I'd like you to feature wheels ON your cards, or as part of them. So you could have cars, bikes etc on your card, or maybe you could actually make a card that moves along on some wheels..... or how about a card that has one of those "wheels" inside it (fixed with a brad) and little apertures in the actual card front so that when you move the wheel the message appears in the aperture? (I hope that makes sense?)
Anyway, I'm sure you can get your creative cogs moving and come up with loads of inventive and different ways to get a wheel or two into your cards.

I used a colour wheel :)

FLourish stamp is from Peppermint Creative, Primas. brads and faux stitching.

TFL :)

Hi Jo,
Just found your blog from Pink Petticoat's. I recently saw your work in the magazine and I think it is great.
I really love your colourwheel inspired card, the bright colours look fantastic.
I maybe wrong but I am sure that I have met you at your work - is it down in Devon, near lots of horses? (obviously don't want to go into too much detail). Sorry if not - but as soon as I saw your piccy in the mag it has been bugging me!

You are too bloody clever by half Mrs K do you know that????

This is just SO clever and SO pretty!

Kathy said...

Knew I could rely on you to think laterally, Jo!

Great idea to base your card on a colour wheel. I love the striking contrast between the B&W and those bright colours

Wow I love this card! How clever to pick the colour wheel! I was trying to figure out what the print was, if it was a stamp or a printed paper it looks really cool like a screen print. :-D
