It’s time for another challenge at Time Out Challenge. This week’s theme is Celebrations with an optional twist of a One Layer Card. The challenge is kindly sponsored by CAS-ual Fridays stamps and they are giving $20 store credit to the winner of this week’s challenge! We are joined this week by the absolutely amazing TaeEun. Her blog is truly stunning, she’s one super talented lady and I guarantee you’ll be returning time and again to check out her creations!
CAS-ual Fridays were also kind enough to supply the DT with a stamp set. I am using simple Mon Ami stamp set for this card. There are so many possibilities with the images in this set. I was going to use the small flower to create a rainbow rotated circle but in the end I went for a repeat pattern ombre. The MISTI comes in really handy for this technique, enabling you to move the cardstock an even distance every time you stamp. I stamped the small flower over a piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock repeatedly using this technique in Versafine Onyx Black ink (which is waterproof).
I chose a selection of pinks and purple Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers to colour in the images to create an ombre look. I used the markers direct to card at the base of each flower and then pulled out the color using a water brush. It’s super quick and easy to create. I adhered the panel down to a Neenah Solar White 110lb card base using double sided tape. For the sentiment I white heat embossed a sentiment from the set onto a scrap of purple co-ordinating card stock and popped it up on foam squares (cheating a little on the one layer twist !)
That’s it – hope you liked ! Please be sure to hop on over to the challenge blog and take part.
Have a wonderful week,
