Hello … bonjour! We have a fabulous new challenge starting today at Time Out … this fortnight we have a theme … Hobbies … with the optional twist of making a one layer card. I chose not to twist this time around … and made this delicate little number …
Are you wondering what hobby my card illustrates? Have a guess … got it yet? If you came up with lace making you’re spot on … or even crochet would do it. I don’t do either, though did dabble in the latter many years ago! I sponged a panel of Bristol card stock with three different distress inks, did a little splattering over the top and left it to dry. My doily die cut is from Waffle Flower … one of a number given to me by my lovely, non blogging, card making friend Judith last summer (she comes for a playdate every year while visiting family in the area) … isn’t it pretty? I trimmed off the edge and adhered it over the blended area of my panel, leaving the outer couple of centimetres free to turn up a little. The ‘Thanks’ is from SSS … die cut from vellum and black … hung slightly over the edge of the doily, with the supplementary sentiment embossed in white on a slender black strip. I added a single ink-sponged heart (from Winnie & Walter), covered it with Spectrum Noir sparkle … and topped it and the die cut ‘Thanks’ with Glossy Accents, before attaching the panel to my card base.
How creative will you be with our Hobbies theme … and will you use our optional twist? It was only when I started looking through my stash that the idea of lace making came to me … till then the ideas well was dry! Why not check out your stamps and dies and see if they prompt an idea or two … we’d love to see what you make in our gallery! This fortnight, we’re sponsored by CAS-ual Fridays (thanks, Michele!), who are offering a $20 GC to a random twister … and as usual, our overall winner, as voted for by the DT, will be invited to guest design with us in a future challenge. All the details are over at the Time Out blog … along with heaps of inspiration from our brilliant DT … and from our talented Guest Designer, Ashwini from Experiments With Card Making Etc. Why not pop over and have a visit with Ashwini … you’ll have a fabulous time exploring all the wonderful, fun, bright, happy cards on display … and you can leave her some love while you’re there!
