Hello … bonjour! Are you playing along with us at our second anniversary challenge at Time Out this fortnight? Our theme is Easter or Spring (with an optional twist of masking) … and there’s plenty of time to link up. This week, I left out the masking but stayed with the colours and theme of Easter …
I stamped and white heat embossed the Rejoice sentiment down a white card panel (thank goodness for Misti!), used a broad brush to swipe a watercolour wash of Distress Ink over each word, and adhered the panel to the card base. A stitched border was embossed down each side of the panel and the base. I cut the Easter cross in woodgrain card stock, popped it up on foam tape onto the card, and stamped the sentiment in black Versafine. The white embossing resisted the ink a little … oops … so I went over those parts with a Micron fine black pen … that did the trick! Products are all from SSS except the stitched border, which is Lawn Fawn.
So … will you play along … there are so many options with this theme … and we’d love it if you joined us in the gallery! As befits an anniversary celebration, there are prizes … a $20 gift card from STAMPlorations for the winner (as chosen by the DT) … and two Artplorations stencils for a randomly drawn player who uses the twist of masking. Details are over at the Time Out blog … along with lots of delicious inspiration from our wonderfully talented and returning Guest Designer, TaeEun from Rainbow in November … and from our own amazing Design Team. Hope to see you there!
