Hello … bonjour! Our lovely new challenge starts this morning at Time Out … this fortnight … We Challenge You To Be … Bold! Here’s where I went with the theme …
I’ve had this vibrant, bold, Brusho background since the last Lake House trip … made during a very messy playtime we had … and this seemed the perfect moment to use some of it up. I was inspired by a card I received from my lovely friend, the uber talented Loll (thanks so much for the inspiration, Loll!) … which had a yupo paper and alcohol ink background with embossing paste leaves stencilled on it … gorgeous! I can’t find it on her blog … though when you go over there, you’ll find lots of other luscious examples of her stunning work! My panel was cut to size, I arranged and adhered some die cut leaf sprigs from Poppystamps over it and trimmed off the overhanging ones round the edges. This particular die has been discontinued, though there are plenty of other lovely ones here at Poppy Stamps. The sentiment is from SSS, white heat embossed on light blue vellum … and I added a scattering of Lucy’s Little Jewels to co-ordinate with the colours in the background. The panel was popped up on craft foam on the card base.
Where will our challenge take your creative imagination … to bold colours, as mine did … to a bold sentiment … to a bold image … or somewhere else? Wherever it takes you, we’d love to see what you create! This time round, we’re sponsored by Poppystamps … the winner, as voted for by the DT will receive a $20 GC from the store … and as usual, will be invited to guest design with us in a future challenge. All the details are over at Time Out, along with plenty of wonderful inspiration from our splendid DT … as well as from some of the fabulous team at Poppystamps …. and our talented Guest Designer, Marieke. Do go over and have a visit with Marieke … she has heaps of delicious cards for you to enjoy on her blog … and why not say hello while you’re there!
You might also like to know that there’s a Clean and Simple challenge starting today at the Poppystamps blog … so if you have some of their products and make a CAS card for Time Out, you can link it up there too … and be in with a chance to win a randomly drawn prize!
