Time Out Challenges Reminder!


Hi friends!
I'm here to remind you of our current challenge at Time Out where we want you to be inspired by something in your wardrobe! A fun, a bit different theme don't you think!


I was inspired by a long dress I bought in December for all the holiday time festivities. It's such a comfy dress because it's not tight from anywhere... Yet it has some sort of cut and shape, it's not one of those overly floating sacks! :) The photo of it is just a quick snap of me standing in a hotel room before heading to dinner but here it is: 


In my card I've tried a new to me technique where you stamp your images with colored ink first and then with versamark and heat emboss them with clear powder. That makes the images to resist the black ink you can then sponge on top. These Altenew flowers have a base layer stamp that covers the whole image and that's what I've used for the versamark stamping. I quite like how this turned out, it all being "one layer" makes it look like fabric a little bit! I finished the panel with some white gold water color splatters. The sentiment is by Waffle Flower. Hope you like!

I look forward seeing what you'll create for us. Our winner gets a $20 gift voucher to Poppy Stamps and will be invited to guest design in a future challenge. This time the guest designer is talented Lise Mariann! Make sure to visit her and all our DT blogs for more inspiration. 

I'd like to join:
Stamping Sensations: Favorite Stamps (this Altenew flower set is surely an oldie but a goodie, one of the reliable faves in the stash! This is my 3rd entry) 
Penny Black and More: Feminine (my 3rd entry)
Uniko Jan/Feb Challenge: Anything Goes

  1. You look fab in that dress (and loving your hair like that!) The pattern on the dress is so pretty and wow to making such a fab card from it-it is stunning. I love the way the flowers look with such depth-I don't quite understand how you did this but keep doing it as it makes amazing cards x

  10. What a lovely smile, Nonni ... you look wonderful in your elegant dress ... I'm tempted to call it a gown it's so chic! Equally gorgeous card ... the bright florals are fabulous against the sponged black ... deliciously dramatic! Hugs, Anita :)
