It’s time for another wonderful new challenge at Time Out … this fortnight our theme is Grunge … with an optional twist of embossing! Not only is it time for a new challenge, but one of our lovely teamies is celebrating her birthday today … owner of the fabulous Uniko Studio … the very talented Beverley! Happy Birthday, Bev … may your day be a special one and your coming year be full of joy! This card is on it’s way to you …
If you’re a regular visitor here, you’ll know that ‘Grunge’ is not my usual place to be … clean, crisp, structured is more my style! Sometimes, though, it’s a good thing to stretch those creative muscles … and that’s what I’ve done here. This is a one layer card, stamped with Shirley‘s lovely unstructured Rose Buds from STAMPlorations … in grey rather than black, to emphasise the sketched look. I did some watercolour sloshing on the roses with Distress Inks, allowing the different colours to blend with one another and bleed a little over the lines. The roses were masked and I delicately splattered the card using the remaining pools of colour. The sentiment is from Avery Elle … to my eyes the scripty font fits the sense of unstructured-ness!
So, there you have it, a CAS-loving-neat-freak’s take on ‘Grunge’! Feel like giving your creative muscles a work out? We’d love to have you join us! How about letting your imagination roam … and even if, like me, your usual style isn’t grunge, why not give it a go … sloshing and splattering is very liberating! This fortnight, we’re sponsored by STAMPlorations … our overall winner (as chosen by the DT) will receive a US$10 gift card and be invited to be a Guest Designer for a future challenge … and in addition, there’s a random draw for another US$10 gift card for those who chose to twist and feature embossing on their cards. All the details are over on the Time Out blog, along with heaps of inspiration from our talented Guest Designer, Ksenija from Sweet Kobylkin, and our amazing DT! Look forward to seeing you in the gallery!
