Hello … bonjour! We’re about half way through our delicious Home Sweet Home challenge at Time Out, where we have the most amazing photo to inspire you (below) … here’s my second take on it …
I masked off the lower part of a panel of watercolour card stock, and repeatedly inked up, spritzed and randomly stamped a leaf from the new Trendy Leaves 2 set (from STAMPlorations (courtesy of teamie and generous owner of STAMPlorations, Shery … thanks so much, Shery!). This was a new to me technique and immediately after spritzing and stamping, all I saw was a sorry mess! However, I was really surprised at how clear the detail on the leaves became as the water moved the colour around and the ink dried … so I adhered the panel to a card base that had had the edges sponged black, ruled in a line to define the stamped/unstamped area, and added a STAMPlorations sentiment (that had gone through surgery) . Voila!
Where does your imagination take you when looking at our photo? There are so many different elements to use! However you’re inspired, why not make a card and link it up to our gallery … we’d love to see you there! We’re sponsored this time round by STAMPlorations … the winner (as chosen by the DT) will receive a $10 GC, plus there will be two random draws … one for the Holiday Expressions: Thankful stamp set and one for the Trendy Leaves 2 set. All the details are over at the Time Out blog … along with heaps of inspiration from our amazing DT and from our delightful and super talented returning Guest Designer, Claire from Life On The Scrapheap (who you really need to visit if you haven’t already … so much loveliness!).
