Hello … bonjour! Welcome to our new challenge at Time Out … this fortnight, we have a cool, contemporary, almost monochrome Home Sweet Home image to inspire you (a little further down). Here’s my take on it … … and here’s the stylish inspiration picture …
Bet you can see what my attention was drawn to! Yep, the striped rug, the white table and that verdant green leafy plant! The stripes were cut with Essentials By Ellen Skinny Stripes die and backed with black, the ‘planted’ and layered leaves are from Poppy Stamps (Lorelei Leaf – now retired I think, though there are other similar ones) and are cut from a Lindy’s Magicals panel made (I believe) at the Lake House … and the sentiment is from Simply Graphic. I finished it off with a scattering of iridescent sequins. You can see some of the leafy shimmer here …
What draws your eye in our Home Sweet Home photo … the graphic patterns, something on the picture shelf, that stylised white animal, the pops of colour … or something else? Wherever your creative imagination takes you, we’d love to see your card in our gallery! This fortnight, we’re sponsored by Poppy Stamps … our winner, as chosen by the Design Team, will receive a $20 GC to the store, as well as being invited to guest design with us in a future challenge. All the details are over at the Time Out blog, along with plenty of ideas from the DT to inspire you. We’re also delighted to welcome our uber talented Guest Designer, Hannelie from Desert Diva. I’m pretty sure you’ll know Hannelie’s amazing work … though do go over and say hello, you’ll be so pleased you did … and so will she!
I’m playing along at …
