Hello … bonjour … hope you’ve been enjoying your week! I’m popping in with another card for our latest challenge at Time Out, which still has almost a week to run … so there’s plenty of time to play along if you haven’t already! Even if you have, we’d be happy to see you coming back with more! Our theme is Celebrations …with the Optional Technique Twist of Die Cutting /Fussy Cutting … here’s my second take on it …
Nothing like celebrating a friendship … in full colour! These rainbow strips evolved … I heat embossed the ‘fabulous amazing terrific awesome fantastic’ from CAS-ual Fridays‘ Truth Is set repeatedly down a piece of watercolour card stock … brushed a thin stroke of Zig marker through the middle of each one … and ran a wet brush over them, line by line, allowing the colour to merge and flow. After some discussion with myself about how to use the piece, I trimmed it into strips, popped three up on foam tape on the card base … and adhered a Studio Calico die cut over the top … covered liberally with Wink of Stella, of course. Want to see?
So … will you play along? You can celebrate anything you wish on your card … and we’d love it if you joined us in the gallery! This fortnight we’re sponsored by CAS-ual Fridays Stamps … not only did owner Michele provide the DT with yummy goodies to play with (thanks so much, Michele!) … she’s also giving away a US$25 gift voucher to a randomly drawn participant who uses the Die Cutting/Fussy Cutting twist! All the details are over at the Time Out blog, along with plenty of delicious inspiration from our amazing DT and from our wonderfully talented Guest Designer, Elizabeth Stewart from Paper Sweetness. Hope to see you there!
