Hello! Not a great deal of card making going on here recently … my creativity’s been even more active than usual on the renovation, so there’s not been a lot of space for anything else (as you may have noticed from not having me visit!). However, I have made a card to share with you for our wonderful new challenge at Time Out which starts today … this fortnight we’re ‘Inspired By Words’ … from American poet William Callum Bryant … ‘Autumn, the year’s last, loveliest smile’. Here’s what I came up with …
I stamped and heat embossed Hero Arts‘ Simple Leaves background onto a white card panel and sponged it diagonally with a range of blended, ombré, autumnal colours. The panel was trimmed to size and split to allow me to add the Paper Smooches stacked and offset sentiment over the gap. I popped the sponged panel pieces up on the card base, adhered the die cut ‘thanks’ and scattered a few sequins to finish off. This colour palette is a bit of a departure for me as I rarely use autumnal shades … and the finished card seems to me for all the world to be just like a vintage suitcase … complete with gold locks!
So, how might our quote get your imagination going? You can use all or any of the words to spark your creativity … and we’d love for you to link up and play along with us! There’s heaps of inspiration over on the Time Out blog … from our talented Guest Designer, Glenda from My Paper Cat … and from our fabulous DT … look forward to seeing you in the gallery!
I’m joining in the fun at …
