I’m popping in with a quick reminder … there’s still a week to go in the latest Time Out challenge! We (the Design Team) have plenty of mid challenge inspiration for you over at the Time Out blog, so why not have a meander over there and see how the Home Sweet Home photograph sparks your creativity? Here’s the wonderful inspiration photo …
and here’s my latest take on it …
This is a little different from the norm for me … it’s either a very slim card or a very long tag (it’s the latter … there’s twine on it)! I saw the planted pine cones and the tall, slender candle sticks in the picture … and thought graphic Christmas trees! A snow bank was sponged at the bottom of the kraft scrapling, it was embossed in white and was dabbed over with Espresso ink to emphasise the texture. I used an SSS stencil for the snow, again white embossed. A tall triangle (from Avery Elle‘s Bright Days) was stamped three times onto spare card and double embossed, two in silver (Hero Arts) and one in platinum (Ranger). They were trimmed out, covered with Versamark, embossed again and popped up onto the snow bank with foam dots. I finished with a Papertrey sentiment, a red gem atop each of the trees and a little twine.
