A New Challenge At Time Out – #145 – Breast Cancer Awareness

Hello … bonjour!  Our new challenge has just started at Time Out … and this fortnight we have a special theme for you to play with.  It’s Breast Cancer Awareness with the option of making a one layer card using pink.  Here’s where I went with it …

… a one layer card, with ombré shades of pink blended over a CAS-ual Fridays stencil (Tin Roof).  The centres of the flowers are dotted with ombré Nuvo drops (they get darker as they go down the card) … and the sentiment is from CAS-ual Fridays (Truth Is … now sadly retired).  Voila … quick and clean and simple (QACAS in Darnell-ese).  Like a closer look at the ombré?


How will you interpret our special theme … and will you use our optional one layer twist using pink?  We’d love to see what you create in our gallery.  This time around, we’re sponsored by CAS-ual Fridays (thanks, Michele) … who are offering a US$25 GC to a randomly drawn player who uses the optional twist.  As usual, our overall winner will be chosen by the DT … and will be invited to guest design with us in a future challenge.  Details are over at the Time Out blog … along with loads of fabulous inspiration from our brilliant DT … and from our talented Guest Designer, Sidan.  Why not pop over for a visit with Sidan … you’ll so enjoy wandering through her fabulous creations!

    Well you rocked the onmbre look and wow to the one layer! I love the addition of the nuvo drops-I still can’t get these to work so well! Fab card for our worthy challenge x

    Such a pretty card Anita. I need to play with some of my stencils too…they can make such an effective background xx

    As usual, you clean and precise designs are a pure delight. What an beautifully encouraging card for any reason. The idea of the ombre center dots is nothing short of brilliance. After all, what could I expect from that fertile mind of yours.

    Such care you took to get those gradient shades in both the ink and the Nuvo drops! It’s a lovely card, Anita! An all important cause as well.

    I apologize for my late visit, Anita…this is such a pretty card! I love the ombre’ effect you created with your inks and that you created the same effect with your Nuvo Drops…very cool idea! I am going to try to play along in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness…Thank you, my friend! Barb xx
