Hello … bonjour! Hope your week has been going along smoothly and happily! I’m popping in with a reminder about the current challenge we having running at Time Out. There’s still plenty of time (almost a week) to play along with our Home Sweet Home inspiration (it’s a little further down) … here’s what I came up with for my second take …
Ok, so when I look at my card I’m thinking dashing chap in crisp pastel linen shirt with black jeans … or is that just a leap too far? If you look at the pavers in front of that fab window (above), you’ll see the colours I’ve picked up for my border (The Alley Way Stamps, sadly no longer with us) … shaded with Promarkers in a brick style pattern. I added the Papertrey die cut in white, popped up over black, and stamped the supplementary sentiment (also Papertrey) above and below. It’s finished off with some Ranger enamel accents in black. It struck me as fresh, dishy and masculine (even though the colours are pastel) … what d’you think?
Where does your imagination take you when you gaze at this photo … stained glass, brickwork, block steps, pavers … where ever it lingers, we’d be delighted if you got creative and linked up a card at our gallery! All the details are over at the Time Out blog … along with two weeks of inspiration from our awesome DT and from our wonderful, talented Guest Designer, Karren J at Stamping Stuff (you’ll really want to visit if you haven’t been visiting already!). Hope to see you over at Time Out!
Finally, I’m delighted to say a wonderful warm hello to some more card making friends and followers … Isabelle at Izzyscrap (such deeeeelicious CAS designs … and Isabelle is in France too!), Mary at Carolina Cards (so many of you will know Mary’s awesome range already!) and Regina at Catchy Sketch (such lovely, soft floral creations!). You’re so welcome, ladies … and thank you so much!
