Time Out DT #28 Mid Challenge Reminder, Less Is More #218, Virginia’s View #14, SSS Monday 6/4, SSS Work It Wednesday – March

We’ve arrived at the half way point in our latest fabulous challenge at Time Out … this fortnight we’re CASEing the wonderfully talented Kim from Art Keeps Me Sane.  Kim’s inspiration is bold and dramatic, with the softness of a floral cascade (see below) … here’s my latest take …Time Out DT 28R, LIM 218, VV 14, SSSM 6-4, SSSWIW MarchTime Outand here’s Kim‘s lovely inspiration …

This week, I went with the black base (generously spritzed with Shimmer Spray), white embossed sentiment (Papertrey) and a trimmed out panel of watercoloured white embossed Doodlie-Doo blooms (also Papertrey), which were popped up over the black.

Have you joined in already?  If so, feel free to come back again for seconds (a Michele-ism!) … if not, I do hope you’ll be able to find some time to play along with us!  We’re sponsored this fortnight by Clearly Besotted Stamps and our overall winner (as voted by the DT) will receive a £20 gift voucher, as well as the chance to be a Guest Designer for a future challenge … what’s not to love?  There’s inspiration galore over at the Time Out blog … from our fabulous DT and from our delightful and talented Guest Designer, Claire from Life On The Scrapheap (go check out her blog and drink in all the deliciousness you find there!).  Look forward to seeing you in the gallery!

I’m playing along with …

    I was just looking at these PTI stamps yesterday…so tempted to add to my ever-growing stamp collection. You’re doing nothing to stop me from spending money with this one Anita…those doodled blooms look stunning against the black and the colours are perfect!

    Simply divine Anita. Those florals just pop off the black background.
    So dramatic and eye-catching. Thanks so much for linking up and joining Less is More this week.

    I absolutely adore those doodlie flowers, Anita… you’ve coloured them so beautifully and your fussy cutting is so clean and perfect. I’ve had this Time Out printed out on my craft table since its premier. Can’t get over how gorgeous Kim’s card is! Look’s like I’ve got a bit more time… thinking cap on!! What I wouldn’t give to have a Clearly Besotted prize!! xo

    Love the layout and coloring of your doodle flowers, Anita. What a great idea to make them into a panel to cut out and pop onto the black..

    Wow! I love the composition of your card Anita. All of your details are exquisite. The frame that you drew, joining with the watercoloured blossoms, like one…so artfully arranged and softly blended like they are sprouting from the corner. The sentiment has her perfect place too! Love :))

    Such a beautiful take on Kim’s card, Anita! I love your water colored blooms and the lovely font on the sentiment! Stunning card, as always!

    Stunning! Absolutely perfectly balanced with water colored images that absolutely rock the black background! The contrast is dynamic, but in a soft way! Your embossed sentiment is flawless! The shimmer spray seems to have added some cool texture – either that or it’s the way that you photographed the card. WOWZERS pal!

    Gorgeous card Anita…simply gorgeous. This is so stunning with all those beautiful flowers agaist that beautiful black background….Just love it! Sending hugs and kisses!

    Your right, great minds certainly do think alike!! I love those PTI flower stamps and your colouring of them is gorgeous. This has been such a good challenge because I think we all have discovered using black CS is quite fabulous paired with colour. You’ve totally rocked this challenge!!

    These are beautiful and I love how you’ve used the bold, bright flowers against the black background ~ it’s so very striking! Thank you so much for sharing your projects Anita and for joining us over on the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog… 🙂

    Hi Anita! Loving your beautiful bold black background, and of course I love the wonderful flowers you used! Hope you are enjoying a wonderful weekend. Or its over for you already. Have a wonderful week then. Hugs

    Exquisite, elegant, classy…yes, I’m in love! In LOVE deeply! Now I need to go scope out those PTI flowers, just because (window shopping *grin*)

    The case card is so pretty, but your use of the bold black background took this design from simply pretty to strikingly awesome. Combine the bright colors in the floral stamping and you have a real winner in this beautiful card. The tiny dewdrop embellies were perfect on this piece that looks as though it should be in a frame! TFS & Hugs

    Wow, so sorry that I am so far behind on your blog. This baby is drop dead gorgeous. I love how you’ve got so much contrast going on, and that water colored panel is spectacular. Pinning this one for further study and CASing.
