I struggled for a bit with this Etsy Paper Twirlies team photo inspiration challenge. We are showcasing photos from other Etsy Sellers and deriving inspiration for a new item from them. In this challenge, we are casing crochetgal's slipper tutorial. Here is her image:
At first, I was thinking about lounging and footwear and I was thinking maybe spa flip flops. But then, I really like the brown booties best, so I thought about moccassins tromping on snow (the white background). I let it sit in my head for a while and this song kept popping up in my mind:
I've got a lovely bunch of coconuts.
There they are all standing in a row.
Big ones, small ones, some as big as your head!
So, I decided I had to do a row of similar items in different shapes and sizes. Here's what I came up with:
This is my lovely bunch of quilled hearts. I embossed the white background and I paper pierced the oval. I hand wrote the little message. I'm giving this card to a co-worker. I had to work this long weekend to keep up with deadlines and one support staff volunteered to come in and assist me. I was very grateful.
Purple is her favourite colour. I like how this card turned out. It was difficult for me to make such teeny hearts. I'll have to make more for my shops - when I find the time.
