At Time Out Challenges, we are celebrating our first birthday! A year ago, I was honored to have been invited by Nonni and Sandie to join the TO design team. Since then it's been a fun ride and I'm excited for the future and to join the talented TO girls into its second year.
For this challenge, we have the inspiration photo below. We'd love you to create a project based on it -- you can take inspiration from the frames, the white wooden panel, the colors, the branch. Because it's a birthday celebration challenge, there are prizes! The winner (as voted by the DT) will win gift certificates from Uniko and STAMPlorations. And one winner (randomly drawn) will win an ARTplorations Celebration/Birthday stencil pack from STAMPlorations. Do check out the projects that my teammates created, as well as the card by our guest designer, Mandi.
For my card, I was inspired by the bright, happy colors and the frames. For the artsy flower imprint, I used the Happy Flowers stencils from ARTplorations. It's actually leftover paint on the stencil when I used it on another card. I used Distress paints then flipped over the stencil, laid it on top of my card base, and brayered over it to transfer the paint. (This is the same technique I used to create the second coffee card found here.) I stamped the sentiment from the new set, Blossom Overture, by STAMPlorations and finished the card by adding the bright orange border with a Japanese watercolor brush marker.
Thanks for stopping by! Don't forget to smile :o)
