I love to think of nature
as an unlimited broadcasting station,
through which God speaks to us every hour,
if we will only tune in.

Photo Inspiration -- Texture and Tile By Jason Kravitz

 Photo Courtesy of Jason Kravitz@aminus3 

Well, I've been MIA again for a while.  Snowstorms will do that I guess, especially when you live in an area like the Triangle of NC where snowstorms are few and far between.  Growing up in West Virginia, we saw plenty of snow most every year and had plenty of snow days filled with sledding, snowman making and hot chocolate.  So, I was quite thrilled to finally get some significant snow (5 inches) in Cary this week   That is the most snow we have seen in eight years.

But, I digress.  Now that the snow has mostly melted, I am back to more important things....stamping and photography!  I did acquire a small mass of  photos from the storm, another reason for neglecting my card blog. I have been busy with my photoblog, ShutterSavvy,  which, now brings me on topic.

Over at Aminus3, host of my photoblog, is a myriad of photographers, both amateur and pro, who display their  photographic art daily.  One such fellow artist, Jason Kravitz, just happens to be the infamous creator and founder of Aminus3.  My reason for introducing him here is that he posted a photo on January 20th that inspired me to create a card.  As you see from his photo here, the color combo, as well as the various textures are things we card creators thrive upon for inspiration. 


I took the white cardstock for the top of the card, inked and distressed it and then added the soccer and star stamps.  On the bottom with the turqoise cardstock, I used the Cuttelbug mosaic emboss folder to get the tiled look and then inked it for more of a worn look.  Black ribbon, brads and black lettering for the sentiment were the finishing touches.  I hope I did his photo justice in my interprestation.
