Our theme for the current TIME OUT challenge is 'Nature' and you also have the optional twist of 'one-layer'. And with so many stamps around with butterflies, birds, flowers etc, I'm sure you'll come up with some gorgeous projects.
Our Sponsor for this challenge is Uniko. They are giving a stamp set to someone chosen from the people who created with the 'optional twist'. So get twisting!!
Myself, along with other TIME OUT DT members, was very lucky to be sent a stencil by Bev (Uniko owner) to use for this challenge. Its fantastic and I don't have anything like it, so I'm very happy and grateful indeed. This is what I created:
I gathered some Distress Oxide ink colours and my mini-blending tool to use on the Uniko 'Stencil and Mask - Nature's Treasures II'. It has two leaf images so I alternated using different parts of them around the edge of the card front, not worrying about leaves overlapping.
I wanted to keep the rest of the card black and white so the background colours would be the star. I stamped the largest butterfly from Uniko 'English Country Garden - Butterflies' stamp set with Versafine black ink on white CS and fussy cut it out. I also stamped the sentiment (from the same set) on a strip of white CS and both of these were popped up on foam tape. I then glued on a few Neat and Tangled sequins for a bit of shine.
You have until Wednesday 19th June to link your projects to the TIME OUT challenge and if your needing any help with ideas, pop over to the blog to see what the rest of the Design Team and our Guest Designer Lise of Lise Mariann - Paper, Colour and Good Times have created to inspire you.
