Hello! I’m here to share a card for our latest challenge at Time Out, which still has almost a week to run. We’re ‘Inspired by Words’ this time around … with our words being ‘Friendship is Golden’ … how true! Here’s where my imagination took me this week …
I stamped and white heat embossed a Hero Arts background onto a white card panel, split it into three and sponged Distress Ink/Memento Ink over them. Jennifer McGuire‘s recent video on faux metallics gave me the idea to brush Perfect Pearls over the sponged panels … it gave both the ink and embossing a soft metallic shimmer … there’s a hint of it on the top section where I managed to get the light to hit it! Slender strips of black card were cut to go in between the pink sections and I embossed the WPlus9 ‘sweet friend’ onto one. The full panel was reconstructed onto spare cardstock and fun foam, and was mounted onto the card base. I die cut the WPlus9 ‘hello’ in gold foil card and adhered it to the panel over a little nest of gold thread … and finished off with a scattering of gold sequins.
Have you played along with us yet? If not, we’d love to have you join us … and even if you have, you can be re-inspired! There’s plenty of inspiration over on the Time Out blog, from our lovely and super talented Guest Designer, Cornelia from Stempel Spass (Fun Stamping) (you really, really need to visit Cornelia if you don’t know her … and take a picnic, you’ll be there a while!) and from our wonderful Design Team. Look forward to seeing you in the gallery!
