Reminder: TIME OUT Challenge #142

Hi everybody!! So glad you can't see me at the moment as I'm covered in paint. Unfortunately its wall paint not watercolour. I took this week off so I could paint my daughters room. Its been a huge mission and now I have to do a few touch-ups because the painters tape I used has now removed paint all along the door frames etc (you can imagine the language that was used......) but it looks great from afar!!

For the current TIME OUT challenge its all about being 'Fashionable', which is quite funny for me as I'm the least 'fashionable' person around!! I'm either in old gardening clothes, painting clothes, jean's and sweatshirts or pjs. And my hair is always up in a very messy bun. I desperately need help in the fashion department!!

Our Sponsor for this challenge is Stamplorations and they are giving a $25 gift voucher to the winner...yippee!!

For my card I used one of my favourite Stamplorations stamp sets and a sentiment that I can actually relate too:

As you can image this was pretty easy to put together and I had great fun colouring all of these images in!! And I do love buying shoes, especially Converse in different colours.

Using my MISTI I stamped the boots from Stamplorations 'A Girl and her Shoes' with Gina K Amalgam black ink across the card front and coloured with Altenew Artist Markers. I then white heat embossed the sentiment (from the same set) on black CS, backed with white CS and popped up on foam tape, along with some Neat and Tangled sequins.

I'm going to link this to the Simon Says Stamp - Wednesday Challenge where their theme is 'Clean and Simple'.

Will also link to The Cats Pajama's Challenge #360 where their theme is also 'Clean and Simple'.

You have until Wednesday 28th August to link your projects to the TIME OUT challenge and if your needing any ideas, pop over to the blog to see what the rest of the Design Team and our amazing Guest Designer Jenny of My Paper Epiphany have created to inspire you. Look forward to seeing your projects in the Gallery!!

Take care


  1. Love this Shona - those boots are stunning, and I love the wee sequins dotted through them.
    Sounds as though that painters tape was somewhat "character building" :)

  2. Oh my. Soooo "Fashionable". Your coloring is excellent.

  3. When I find a pair of shoes that I love, I always buy them in different colors! This is fantastic Shona. Love your rainbow of fabulous boots!

  4. Bright, colourful and so fun, Shona ... happy shopping! Hugs, Anita :)

  5. I always wanted to be able to wear boots.
