Time Out Challenges 244


I am so excited to be Guest Designing for Time Out Challenges...  The new challenge is MONOCHROME...  This means to pick one color and use it in all of its tones and shades.   I actually have 2 cards for you...  I was not a big fan of the first one so I took a second crack at it.  

Here is my first attempt, I used the Chicken Wire Stencil from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps along with the Picked Raspberry oxide ink, I used an embossing folder to emboss the bottom panel on my card.  The flower is one of my favorites from MftStamps, I embossed it in white and then painted it with the Picked Raspberry, water and a paint brush.  The little pearls are actually a light pink.

This is my second attempt and I LOVE  how it turned out.  I used my absolute favorite stamp from Colorado Craft Company-Proud of You, I colored it using 2 different shades of Tombow markers and I just adjusted the amount of water I used to darken or lighten the colors.  I used a background stamp from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps -Texture Tiles 1 and Vintage Photos Oxide Ink to mark up the Kraft background paper.  The hello stamp is just a random stamp I have, not sure the company.  

The challenge is sponsored by Varada Sharma Designs...   There will be 2 challenge winners, one drawn randomly and the other chosen by the Time Out Design Team- each will win a $15 store credit to use at Varada Sharma Shop.  The winner chosen by the design team will also receive an offer to Guest Design on a future challenge. 

I cannot wait to see what you come up with for your Monochrome card.

April Instagram Hop


Hello friends, Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps is having an Garden Party IG hop starting today.  You can find all the details HERE. 

My first card uses Flower Garden, I just love this set. I colored it with copic markers and did a light background using the Grunge Grid stencil and antique linen oxide ink.  The sentiment is from the set Birds & Bloom.  I added some gems from Studio Katia and the paper is from Fancy Pants Designs.  


The second card I am sharing is using a fantastic digi stamp called Bottle Bouquet such a beautiful image and so fun to color.  I colored mine with Copic markers.  The sentiment is from Celebrate Today.  I added some pearls and the paper is from Fancy Pants Designs. 

Thanks for stopping,
