tiddly inks challenge #50 inspire me

Hi everyone! I hope that everyone had a good weekend. I took part in a scrap tag sale & was able to get rid of most of the stuff that I brought there. But I couldn't sell my PC Your Story, even though I priced it dirt cheap. I have no idea what I am going to do with this thing. And some of my paper cutters didn't sell either. I will have to come up with something. I hate having things laying around & collecting dust.

But I know that none of my paints, markers, & pencils are gathering dust. I am always using them on TI projects and cards. For this week's challenge we were given this pallet to work with

I love these colors and I wondered what I was going to make. Then as I was surfing the net, I learned to make a neverending card. I don't know how I ended up at this place but I was so glad that I found it. I LOVE magical fun cards!! And this is so easy to make. It is very addictive.

At the same time, I began humming a song. So here is my take on the card

I used Twinkling H2O's to create the background throughout the card and sprayed it with some Sparkle Shimmer Mist. The cover has Imagination on it along with Mad About You. Both are colored with my Copic markers. Then you open the card.

For this section I used Lilli Claire- Did You Hear? I reversed the image & colored her with my Copic markers. She is walking up Timber Top-Ridge by Make It Crafty. I did the clouds in Liquid Pearls & colored the rest with my Copics. And the birdie on the branch is from a Hero Arts set.

Then you flip it open again

Here I chose Passing Through which was colored by Christy. So all I did to this section was color the card & add the sentiment.

Then you flip the card open yet again (Have you guessed the song that I was humming?)

This is technically the last part of the card. Where I put in the lyrics of Pure Imagination from Willy Wonka. I love this song. The TI image that I used on this page is WhazUp....or Down colored with Copics & Glossy Accents on the balloons. And I also added Message-in-Bottle from Make It Crafty. I also used Copics on this image.

Flip it open again and

you are back to the beginning. You can keep flipping through it over & over again. It reminds me of the tunnel in the Wonka factory.

All the sentiments were made in MS Word & distressed with chalk inks. &  Gesso was added sporadically throughout this card. I thought of doing a video of me flipping through the card, but I didn't know if anyone would be interested.

I do hope that you try your hand at this kind of card. It is really fun. My 7 year old has already laid dibbs on this card & she wants to make one too. And if you do make this card let me know so I can see your take on it.

thanks everyone!
@Christy- this is SOOO not complicated. It's very easy to make. How you decorate it can make it complex. But the construction is easy peasy.
