A New Challenge At Time Out #143 – Inspired By Words

Hello … bonjour!  Our new challenge at Time Out has just started … and we have an ‘Inspired By Words’ theme for you to join in with for the next two weeks .. it takes both rain and sunshine to make a rainbow.  Here’s where I went with it …


As you can see, my focus was on the ‘rainbow‘ element of our words.  I took a white card panel and sponged it in a bevy of scrumptious rainbow colours, making sure to keep any muddy-able colours away from one another.  The panel was cut with Cover Model: Multifaceted Cutaway (from Winnie & Walter) … and I adhered a frame around it, that had been cut with two Hero Arts Infinity Dies.  The little ‘happy’ sentiment (from Simon Says Stamp) was stamped onto the frame, then I adhered the panel onto the card base using tiny slivers of foam tape.  The main sentiment is from Winnie & Walter, cut out of black cardstock, embossed in clear, dotted with silver pen (to mimic either rivets or jewels, depending on the recipient) and adhered/popped up over the rainbow.


Where will our words take your creativity?  You can use any or all of them to inspire your card … we’d love it if you played along with us.  We’re sponsored this time around by Winnie & Walter (thanks, Shay!) … our winner, as voted for by the DT, will receive a $25 GC … and as usual, will be invited to guest design with us in a future challenge.  The details are over at Time Out, along with heaps of lovely inspiration from our fabulous DT … and from our talented Guest Designer, Arlene from Sunday Stamper Papercrafts.   Do go and enjoy a visit with Arlene … there are so many inspiring designs to enjoy … and you can always say hello while you’re there!

    Anita, I adore your rainbow die cut. It’s so beautifully blended with color. I like how you raised it and used the black letters with the dots to help the sentiment stand out. This card really stands out as a beauty, too!
