"Telephone Game" blog hop




Welcome to Made Especially For You's 
Telephone Blog Hop!

If you've never heard of the "Telephone" game it's a game most often played by kids that simulates how a story can change from person to person, or how a rumor can start. For example, I may tell Susie that at lunch today I had a peanut butter sandwich, an apple, and some milk, and she may go tell Jackie that I had a turkey sandwich, an apple, and some milk. Although only one small detail was changed, over time the entire story can change. The game is played by starting with a story and whispering it from one person to the next in a circle and seeing how the story changed once the last person has told it. 

We decided to play this game as a design team, not with stories, but with cards! Our DT leader Ashley started with a photo of a card, emailed it to someone, who then created a card based off her card, and sent a photo of it to the next person. As a design team, this is the first time we're seeing the progression of the cards! 

Here is the photo of the card I received from Eileen
 

And here is the card I created inspired by her card:
I really liked the intricate cutout she used, so I decided to use a doily, that I inked up with TH distress ink. Then the flower was a really pretty added element to her card, so I thought that I would crochet one to go on my card. the strip of paper that I used behind the doily reminded me of her background paper and last but, not least. I  really liked the variety of colors that she used in her card. So, I used some of them in mine:) Just mixing them up a little differently.
