Hello … bonjour! What a wonderful gallery you created for us to admire and enjoy during our 3rd birthday celebrations at Time Out … and what lovely comments you left … thank you so much! Do come by the Time Out blog next Wednesday to see if you are the winner of any of our fabulous prizes! In the meantime, I’m hopping in with a sweet little number to entice you to play along with us this fortnight. We have a CASE the Designer challenge this time round … our designer is the uber talented, super creative, out-of-the-box thinking Jenny from Crafting In The Country. If you’ve never visited Jenny, you really need to … you’ll be more than wow’d by her awesome projects! Her wonderful, whimsical card is below … here’s my take on it …
and here’s Jenny‘s little spring cutie …
My eye was drawn to the sponged background, the stitched panel and the delicious whimsical style … so that’s where I went with my card. Serendipitously, Jennifer McGuire (in this video) prompted me to use masked inking to create a little scene. I stamped one of the bunnies from Verve‘s Hip Hop Bunnies onto a piece of white card, coloured him with Promarkers, added a little doodling (gave him inner ears and a smile) and fussy cut him out. The same bunny was stamped onto a Winnie & Walter die cut panel … and he was masked, as was the bottom portion of the panel, so that the Distress Ink grass could be sponged on (Twisted Citron, Mowed Lawn). I kept the bunny mask in place, masked off the top portion of the panel, and softly blended some Tumbled Glass Distress Ink to create the sky. Surgery was performed on the sentiment stamp (from the same Verve set) so the hi could be stamped below the supporting words in a different colour. The fussy cut bunny was popped up on foam dots onto the panel, he had Spectrum Noir clear sparkle applied to his inner ears, nose and tummy … and Glossy Accents added to his nose. He’d have been hopping if I’d had an action wobbler! I doodled the grassy tufts and tiny daisies (coloured with a white gel pen and a yellow Promarker) onto the meadow … and sprinkled some sequins and a few dots of Glossy Accents to finish off.
Where will Jenny‘s card take your creative imagination … there’s so much delicious detailing to choose from … we’d love for you to play along! This fortnight, we’re sponsored by Verve (thanks so much, Julee) … our overall winner (as voted for by the DT) will receive a Verve stamp set of their choice … and will also be invited to design with us in a future challenge. There’s a special post from Julee over at the Verve blog … including a CASE of Jenny‘s card to inspire you. All the details are over at Time Out, along with a whole heap of wonderful ideas from our fabulous DT … and from our amazingly talented Guest Designer, my lovely friend Isabelle from Izzy Scrap. If you haven’t already dropped in on Isabelle, do go … enjoy all the gorgeousness … take a picnic, you’ll be a while!
