Today's the start of another new challenge at Time Out and yay...the challenge run by the dynamic duo Sandie and Nonni turns 2! For the next couple of weeks, we've got a theme: Easter and/or Spring with the optional technique twist of masking.
I went with the spring theme and the twist for my one layer card. I temporary adhered the bird mask (Perched Bird stencil & mask) and then layered a second stencil (Bloom Factory stencil/mask) before sponging two spring-y (to me) Distress inks, spun sugar and mustard seed. Removed the flower stencil then stamped the coordinating flower stamps (Bloom Factory set) in black. Then I removed the bird mask, placed the bird stencil on the card base to cover the stamped areas, and then randomly stamped splatters and newsprint (Art Marks and Mixed Media Grunge) in soft pink for faux texture. Then I removed the stencil and stamped my sentiment (Art Marks). Finished the card by rounding the bottom corners.
Check out the cards the team + guest designer TaeEun made and then link up your own project based on the theme. And there are prizes! The winner (voted by the team) will receive a $20 gift certificate from STAMPlorations. And those who do the twist of masking will be included in a random drawing to win any 2 standard size ARTplorations stencils. So we hope you celebrate TO's 2nd birthday with us by linking up your Easter- and/or spring-themed projects! We can't wait to see your creations!
