A New Challenge At Time Out – #93 – Breast Cancer Awareness/Friendship – Some No-Line Watercolouring

Hello … bonjour!  We have a very special challenge for you at Time Out this fortnight … our theme is one that has probably either touched us all personally, or has touched family and friends.  This time round, we’re asking you to join us for a Breast Cancer Awareness and/or Friendship challenge … with a pink twist.  Here’s my take on it …

Time Out A watercolour card panel, stamped with CAS-ual Fridays‘ blooms (Mon Ami) in Spun Sugar Distress Ink, and no-line watercoloured (my first time!) with Zigs and a water brush.  The stems are from Concord & 9th (the centre vein of a leaf) and the sentiment is from the same Mon Ami CAS-ual Fridays set as the flowers.  The panel was cut with a Winnie & Walter die and popped up on a grey card base on craft foam.  A sprinkling of Nuvo Jewel Drops in Grey Mist (my first bottle!) finished it off.

Will you play along with us?  We’d love to see you in our gallery!  We’re sponsored this fortnight by CAS-ual Fridays (thanks, Michele!), who are offering a $25 GC to the overall winner (as voted for by the DT) …. plus a special prize for a randomly drawn player who uses the pink twist.  All the details are over at the Time Out blog … along with plenty of delicious inspiration from our fabulous DT … and from our talented Guest Designer, Yulia from Scrap Horse.  Do pay Yulia’s lovely blog a visit and say hello … and check out the whole heap of CAS inspiration on show!

Time Out DT #86, SSS Work It Wednesday – June, The Flower Challenge #9, Virginia’s Summer Blog Party

Hello … bonjour!   We’re starting a fabulous new challenge at Time Out this morning … this time round our theme is Celebrations … with the optional twist of making a one layer card. Here’s where I went with it …

Time OutI went with the one layer twist and was inspired by my lovely friend, Lindsey at Occasional Crafting, who makes gorgeous cards using outline stamps and coloured ink.  Actually she makes gorgeous cards using anything … if you haven’t visited Lindsey, you need to, really, your creative brain will thank you for it!   I stamped my blooms (CAS-ual Fridays Pretty Posies, thanks to owner, Michele) using a colour palette I’d saved on Pinterest (I like the unexpected touch of blue), masking as I went to create the corner cluster.  Both parts of the sentiment are from Papertrey and just because the card looked as though it needed them, I scattered some co-ordinating sequins across the white space.  They looked a touch heavy in comparison with the light airiness of the outline stamping, so I lightened them up by adding dots of white Enamel Accents to the centres.   Voilà!

Where will our theme take you?  Will you go with our one layer twist for your celebration card … or do you prefer a layer or two … it’s up to you.  Whichever way you choose, we’d love to see what you create in our gallery.  We’re sponsored this fortnight by CAS-ual Fridays (thanks, Michele!), who are offering a $20 GC to a randomly drawn twister … a great reason to give one layer a go!  As usual, our overall winner, as voted for by the DT, will be invited to guest design with us in a future challenge.  All the details are over at the Time Out blog … along with heaps of delicious inspiration from our fabulous DT … and from our amazingly talented Guest Designer, TaeEun.  You’ll have seen TaeEun’s beautiful work all over blogland … if you haven’t been over to her blog Rainbow in November before, do pay her a visit, you’ll love it … and will come away full of ideas!
