ICAD #9: Inspired by Textiles

Nine days in to the ICAD challenge and I have managed to find new inspiration for a card each day. It has been a pleasure and a relief to get back into a daily creative habit again.

Today’s card was inspired by the work of textile artist Christine Mauersberger. I thoroughly recommend checking out her art: http://christinemauersberger.com/, which she describes as “Investigating the humble stitch onto cloth, plastic and paper.” It is extraordinary and beautiful – go take a look!

    This card looks amazing, Viv!

  2. Fantastic idea and thanks for the link to Christine Mauersberger. I’ve really enjoyed browsing there!

  3. I’m blushing and I like your ICAD project. Thanks x C

  4. Very cool! It looks like it required a whole lot of patience!

  5. Is this card stitched? I haven’t stitched any cards yet but I want to… and I want to use fabric. I just had an idea for today’s card but I think I’ll go with what I had planned and use your inspiration on a later day. I love how that works here – we inspire each other with our creativity. Brava! Found you on this week’s link up – I’m # 35!

I will reply to comments here on the blog, so please check back if you are looking for a response! I love hearing from you x
