Design Team Inspiration


Elle:  When I saw that the challenge theme was "eyes" of course I had to go with cat eyes!  I drew these three ATC cats in soft pastels and they are based on some of my own cats.  I used a well known quote about cat eyes which reads "Who can believe that there is no soul behind those luminous eyes!"


JINALBe the quirky you! I sketched the eyes and lips. To add to the quirkiness I placed the features on the face in an unconventional way to remind us to be quirky, weird, just be the way you are, the one you see in the mirror everyday! Just be unapologetically YOU.



LISA: "For she had eyes and chose me." Incorporating this beautiful quote from Shakespeare's "Othello" with new release Jane Davenport washi tape.


SARAH: Eyes never lie. It is this quote that I wanted to convey via this tag.


VIDHI: I have created an "old age" fun greeting card! It was really a fun process to create this card! After searching some for quotes I got this; "At your age, you need some glasses." It directly strikes my mind to create this fun card!  


MARIE: My inspiration for this tag was actually my son. He has been playing the electric guitar since 2 years back - and even though I am a part in the case - he is pretty darn good. One of the songs he pays a lot is "Electric Eye" by Judas Priest. Just loving it too - so - if you need a pick-me-up - go find it on Spotify!


HEIKE: I created a TAG with the wonderful eye washi tape from Jane Davenport and a stamp from the company Katzelkraft.
