Hello! Popping in with a quick post for our in between week at Time Out, which still has almost a week to run … this fortnight we’re ‘Inspired By Words’ from American poet William Callum Bryant … ‘Autumn, the year’s last, loveliest smile’. This is my graphic, watercolour-y take …
A watercolour card panel was stamped and heat embossed with the Uniko ‘thanks’ and I coloured the letters in an ombré fashion in autumn colours. It looked a bit stark as it was, so I spritzed it with water (lots of it!) … the panel curved itself into a rolling pin shape and the colours ran gently around it. By the time they’d done all that running, there wasn’t a lot of colour left in the letters, so I redid them .. and because the card was still damp, each letter developed a little halo of colour around it. It’s much prettier IRL than it looks here … especially after I’d added Glossy Accents and a sprinkling of sequins … and popped it up onto a masked/sponged (to create the border) base card. It did need to sit under an enormous dictionery overnight to flatten though!
What goes through your mind when you read our quote? Whichever direction your imagination takes you, we’d love it if you’d make a card inspired by any or all of our words … and play along with us! There are ideas galore over on the Time Out blog … from our talented Guest Designer, Glenda from My Paper Cat … and from our wonderful DT … hope to see you in the gallery!

Looking forward to catching up over the next few days with what everyone’s been doing this week … what a lovely helping of inspiration that’ll be! Thanks so much for coming by, your visits and comments are always a joy! Anita 🙂
