CBH Challenge March 23rd

This week's challenge over at Created By Hand is "My Heart Dances".

OK so there are lots of things that come to mind when I say that phrase, although none that really translate into a card, or at least a card I would make that had any use for me. So I was in a conundrum here.


Finally I was playing with my Nestabilities Inverted Scallop and Scalloped circles, making various patterns and having a good time. So other than looking into my "lover's" eyes (which I don't have - sigh) and having my heart palpatate (another term for it dancing), the only other time something like this happens is when I'm doing my art and playing and the results are making me happy. Well this was it, so I created the card with various of the samples I made.


Click on card to see details. I don't think your heart will dance as much as mine does, but c'est la vie.

Another nice one Yogi and looks like gears was my firt thought when I saw the card. I would have loved playing more with those dies, but alas I don't own those ones and only did the one project at the store. Sure looks like you had fun with them.

Oh I just love it! I don't know if it is that I a stuck on steampunk these days but I see clock gears counting the seconds of a dear friendship :))

I like the fact that it's not really literal, but it kind of vaguely references the gears/steampunk while being really clean and kind of open ended about whether it's supposed to represent machinery or not. Very cool.
