We’re mid-way through the CASE With Your Own Twist challenge at Time Out and I’m popping in to remind you (just in case you haven’t played yet!) that there’s still plenty of time to join us. Our CASE designer is the awesomely talented Heather Telford (yes, she of Penny Black DT fame!) … have another look at this gorgeous card she’s given us to play with …
I strayed a smidge further from the inspiration this week, in comparison with last, creating something a little more graphic and one layer as my twist … but still using the autumnal shades and sentiment that Heather had …
I used a Waltzing Mouse Stamps leaf and acorn image to create a two coloured ombré grid pattern on the bottom two thirds of my card, doing a bit of ink blending on the diagonals. A Papertrey Ink Background Basics stripe was added along the top edge and I stamped the Woodware thank you to finish. Simple? Hmmm … well, yes … if you don’t count practising the grid pattern on printer paper beforehand that is!
So, if you haven’t already, why not allow yourself to be inspired by Heather … and make a card with a special twist that makes it all your own. We’ll be delighted to have you play along! If you’d like some more inspiration, our Guest Designer, the wonderfully gifted Carol (Just Me:C), and the rest of the Design Team over at Time Out have plenty for you … just pop along!
I’m linking up with …
One Layer Simplicity – Turning To Fall
Virginia’s View – Clean and Simple
AAA Cards – Autumn Colours
SSS Monday – O Is For … (ombré in my case)
I’m not certain how much I’ll be around over the next week or so … there’ll be a scheduled post for the new and fun Inspired By Words Time Out challenge next week, and I may even get round for some happy and inspiring blog wandering in between times. Other than that it’ll probably be a bit quiet around here … got a bit on for a while! Thanks so much for coming by, your visits and comments are always a joy! Anita 🙂
