Today sees the start of the new challenge at Time Out … this fortnight, we have a delicious Home Sweet Home theme, which means there’s another fabulous inspiration photo for you to wrap your creativity around …
How’s that for warm, cosy, Christmassy? I was inspired by the planted pine cones on the box table … and by the wreath hanging on the ladder in the right corner … and made this …
On a white card panel, I offset an MFT circle die and drew round it in pencil, then stamped the pine branches from Waltzing Mouse Stamps over it, using two inks to get a little variation in tone … Memento’s Olive Grove and Teal Zeal. The pine cones were embossed in brown (which has a little shimmer in it that you can just see on the top one), I added some white gel pen to give them dimension and finished the wreath with some red bling berries (which aren’t usually seen on pine trees … although we have one that has them … albeit different from these!) The simple and lovely sentiment is from Hero Arts. The eagle eyed among you will have spotted some DP here (courtesy of Darnell, one of my fellow BABES … thanks, my friend!) … I adhered a piece of it to the card base to add contrast, before popping up the panel on foam dots. DP for the second time in a week … will the sky tumble, d’you think???
What do you think of when you see the inspiration photo? There’s so much to explore here … why not take some time to have fun with it and play along? All the details are over at Time Out, along with a whole host of fabulous cards from the talented Design Team and Guest Designer this fortnight, Toni from Frankie Helps Craft. Look forward to seeing you in the gallery!
