Hello … bonjour! I’m popping in with a scheduled post (it’s busy so I’m not around much!) … and a card to remind you that our latest challenge at Time Out still has almost a week to run. Our theme is a special one as it’s October … it’s Breast Cancer Awareness and/or Friendship … with the optional twist of using pink and/or embossing. Here’s my second take on it …
The CAS-ual Fridays blooms were stamped onto a white card panel, coloured with Promarkers and coated with Wink of Stella. I trimmed the panel smaller then the image and fussy cut round the flower heads so they hang over the edges (thanks to the amazing Therese at Lost in Paper for that yummy idea!). The base card was masked and sponged with black to provide a frame for the flower panel, which was popped up on craft foam. I die cut a Papertrey sentiment out of card and black foam, ombré coloured the card one with Promarkers and coated it in with Wink of Stella. It was adhered over the panel with the overhanging letters mounted on the black foam. I finished off by stamping the secondary sentiment (Papertrey and SSS) and adding some enamel accents to it and to the flower centres.
Our challenge this time round is being sponsored by CAS-ual Fridays. Many of you will know of the fundraising and other fabulous work that Michele (owner and breast cancer survivor) is doing to raise awareness of the importance of early detection in fighting breast cancer … and of her Calling All Sistahs campaign and monthly blog posts reminding all of us to do our own self exams. Michele will be offering the overall winner a $25 GC … and for a randomly drawn player who uses pink and embossing, there’ll be a prize package from the Calling All Sistahs collection. All the details are over at the Time Out blog, along with heaps of inspiration from our fantastic DT and our lovely and super talented Guest Designer, Coni from Which Craft (if you didn’t visit last week … what are you waiting for … go and enjoy all the deliciousness on offer! Hope to see you in the gallery!
