Time Out Challenges Reminder

Hi friends!
I'm here to remind you of our current challenge at TIME OUT. We are being Inspired By Words: 

A very popular challenge already and I hope you'll also join us! This challenge is sponsored by STAMPlorations. You could win a $15 coupon to their store!

In my card I've used a STAMPlorations stamp, Framed Dahlia, heat embossed with white on Bristol paper. I then sponged a wash of salmon colored DI on top. I begun watercoloring by removing some of the salmon ink from the flowers with a wet brush and then just watercolored several layers of DI:s without much planning or precision! The card base is covered with a brusho bg I had made earlier, it matched the colors of my watercoloring nicely. I completed the card with a die cut Winnie and Walter sentiment. 

Now I hope you'll head on over to our challenge blog for more inspiration from our DT and talented guest designer Kristina. She is someone whose coloring skills are just mind-blowing!!! Thanks for popping by and happy crafting!

I'd like to enter:
