Reminder: Time Out Challenge # 77

Hi there everybody!! Hope your all having a fantastic day. Its been very exciting here as its my daughter Phoebes' 12th birthday and she has done very well in the 'presents department'!! Looking forward to dinner tonight, especially the chocolate birthday cake!!

I wanted to remind you all about our current challenge at TIME OUT!! We have this amazing photo to inspire you:

This is such a colourful and happy wall, I would love it in my house!! You can be inspired by the colours, the scene or maybe just one object....its totally up to you!!

We have a Sponsor for this challenge, Stamplorations, who are offering two prizes, one for a randomly picked winner and one for the winner voted by the DT. So you definitely need to join in to win!!
For my card I wanted to make something as colourful as this photo and try to capture some of its happiness:

I cut a panel of black CS the same size as my card front and adhered in place. This would create a frame around all the colourful images and make them pop!

On a panel of white CS, using Mama Elephant pigment inks, I double stamped each image (using my MISTI) to make sure I got good, bright coverage. I cut the panel down to size and popped on foam tape over the black. The sentiment was stamped in black on a banner, popped on foam tape and added to the card along with some co-ordinating sequins for a bit of sparkle!!

The stamp set is from Stamplorations 'Balloons and Banners'. The blue sequin is from Pretty Pink Posh and the rest from Neat and Tangled.

You have until Wednesday 1st March to link your projects to the TIME OUT challenge. And if you need any help with ideas, pop over to the blog to see what the rest of the DT and our fabulous Guest Designer Andrea from KandA Creative Moments have created for you. Look forward to seeing you in the Gallery!!

Take care
