Time Out #42 Mid Challenge Reminder, Sparkle and Shine #16, Fusion 15/10, CAS-ual Fridays #144, Addicted to CAS# 74

Hello!  I’m popping by with a gentle reminder that there’s still plenty of time to play along with us at our latest Time Out challenge, where we’re inspired by a cool and fun ‘Home Sweet Home’ photo, just a little further down.   Here’s my take …

Time Out DT 42RTime Outand here’s the cool, graphic and slightly spooky inspiration …

Spray paint dollar store glass candle sticks black and add pumpkins for Halloween decoration

This time round, my focus was on the colour scheme, the shine on those stands and the graphic shapes.  I stamped and heat embossed the Papertrey sketched banner direct on the card base and gradient sponged Spiced Marmalade Distress Ink over it.  The little ‘hello’ is from SSS, stamped on a Papertrey scalloped circle, covered with Wink of Stella and coated with lashings of Glossy Accents … it’s mounted on a black, clear heat embossed circle from MFT.  I popped the little badge up on foam tape over the banner and added some gem embellished sequins as a finishing touch.

Where does your imagination take you when you look at this photo … colours, patterns, texture, shine … or anything else you see!  Where ever it goes, why not make a card and play along with us … we’d love to see you in the gallery!   There’s heaps of inspiration over at the Time Out blog, from our talented Guest Designer TaeEun (Rainbow In November) and from our wonderful DT.  Hope to see you there!

I’m joining in the fun at some other spooky and non spooky inspired challenges …

    I just loved this take on the photo when I saw it on the admin blog, it was that sponging..so perfect. I wish I could learn how to do this. You captured the essence of the photo in your very own CAS way!

    Another case of non-literal photo interpretation, Anita. I seem to go with what I see but you see beyond the images and create a wonderful CAS card using the elements of design..
