Hello … bonjour! Our new challenge has just started at Time Out … and this fortnight we have a really fun theme for you to play with. We’d like you to draw inspiration from an item in your wardrobe, past or present … with optional twist of adding embossing (heat or dry) or texture. I chose to twist … here’s what happened …
The main sentiment is from Poppy Stamps … stacked three times and ombré sponged to mimic the fading out stencilled stripes (MFT). The supplementary sentiment from WPlus9 was white heat embossed onto a strip that had been sponged to match the stripes. The florals and leaves are from the same WP9 set … double stamped in various shades of yellows and greens to give them some depth … and adhered onto the card using different heights of foam tape. I finished off by scattering on some blue pearls and adding Glossy Accents to the flower centres. A sleeveless summer dress from when I was very young provided the inspiration … it had a white bodice strewn with yellow flowers and a navy and white striped skirt … joined with a navy band at the waist … so pretty. No actual dress any more … nor a photograph to show you … though I’m sure you get the picture!
How will you interpret our theme … can you find or remember something in your wardrobe to inspire you … and will you use our optional embossing/texture twist? We’d love to see what you create in our gallery. This time around, we’re sponsored by Poppy Stamps who are offering a US$20 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 Time Out … along with inspiration galore from our brilliant DT … and from our talented Guest Designer, Lise at Lise Mariann. Why not pop over for a visit with Lise … you can enjoy a wander through all the loveliness on offer at her blog … and say hello while you’re there!
I’m playing along with …
