Hello … bonjour! Today we start the last challenge of the year at Time Out … this fortnight, we’re Inspired By Words … ‘With each sunrise we are given a chance for a new beginning’. To me, this is a perfect phrase for Christmas, when we celebrate the birth of the Infant Jesus, the Son of God, who came to the world to give us all a new beginning in Him … here’s my card …
My Christmas Day sunrise is made up of a blend of five sponged Distress Inks, sprayed and splattered with Shimmer Spritz. The die cuts are from Concord & 9th‘s Holy Night Bundle … they were adhered flat to the inked card base and the star was covered with a generous coat of Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pen. I finished off with the sentiment, also from the same bundle, stamped in Delicata Gold ink, to match all the other sparkle.
Where will these lovely words take you this fortnight? You can use any or all of them to inspire a card … we’d love to see your take in the gallery! We’re sponsored by STAMPlorations this fortnight … our winner will win a £20 GC and our two HMs will each receive a $10 GC. All the details are over at the Time Out blog, along with heaps of creative ideas from our fabulous DT and our talented Guest Designer, Marina from My Perfect Life. Do go and have a wander around Marina’s fun and creative blog … there’s lots of loveliness to enjoy!
