Two months have gone by and we've completed our first challenge rota at TIME OUT Challenges. It's been super fun to visit everyone's blogs and we are very grateful for how many of you have wanted to play along! Now it's time for our Inspired by Words- challenge again and the phrase is
Time Flies, Love Lasts
If your mojo needs a little push there's fab DT cards in the challenge blog for your inspiration. Karen from Made by Meadie is joining us as a guest designer -I hope you'll visit her blog too and leave her some love -she is a very talented card maker with a beautiful style. Welcome to TIME OUT, Karen!
I chose to make a sympathy card for someone who has lost a loved one... We are not here forever as we unfortunately know and the inspiration phrase along with the Tim Holtzt stamp I chose to work with guided my thoughts to this direction. I started by applying 3 shades of Distress Inks to a piece of card creating a sunset look and then stamped the image with black Versafine. As you see there are birds flying and a clock in the image -those link to our inspiration phrase. Many ways to interpret the words! :) I loved the stamped panel and went with a CAS look to give it the center stage.
I hope to see you playing along at TIME OUT Challenges! We are inspired by words for a fortnight so you'll have plenty of time to take time out and join us. ;) Happy crafting!
A lovely card !!!ReplyDelete
Nonni, this is a great take on the words and such wonderful and rich sponging. I hadn't thought of the words in the way and I love hoe we all see things differently. And such a spot on stamp for this challenge xReplyDelete
Nonni, I think your sentiment with the sympathy card is spot on. The stamping/inking is absolutely gorgeous and so soothing.ReplyDelete
Your card is phenomenal! I've had this stamp for years and never imagined it could look this fabulous! You've inspired me to pull it out and create with it again! The colored background and simple design makes a perfect sympathy card! I love this!!ReplyDelete
