It's the start of a brand new challenge at Time Out. For the next two weeks, it's a Theme Challenge with the optional technique twist. The theme is holidays and the optional twist is no stamping.
I initially was going to make a Christmas card but I wasn't really in a holiday mood yet so I switched gears: I channeled my inner Brit and went with the other meaning of holidays (as in vacation; as in I need to go on a holiday soon or I'm going to go nuts.). And I had the perfect stamp for it (skipping the twist). So I die-cut the stitched rectangle panel (CUTplorations Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangles) and stamped the stack of suitcases and sentiment (Born to Roam). I masked the suitcases before stamping some grungy artsy background (Mixed Media Grunge). Then I colored the suitcases with Inktense pencils and a waterbrush, mounted the panel to my card base, and the card is done. I'm dead chuffed with this card! (I learned that word from Sandie three years ago and love using it whenever I have the opportunity.)
Check out the cards the team + guest designer Aileen made and then link up your own project. Our generous sponsor for this challenge is Uniko. We can't wait to see your creations!
