TIME OUT challenge - CASE with your own twist!


Apologies for leaving you hanging yesterday, my get up an go seemed to have got up and left, therefore it resulted in me not having a lot of energy to sit and craft.

Anyway, I'm back today with the 4th TIME OUT Challenge and this time it's a CASE challenge. The aim of this challenge is to use the designer inspiration card & CASE it adding your own twist. 

This month we have a super duper talented paper crafting expert for you to CASE... Virginia from Yes Virginia and this is the inspiration card...

And this is how I was inspired...

I took inspiration from the overall layout of Virginia's card as it is aesthetically pleasing to the eye and overall CAS. I like the single focal element & twine detail and decided to place my twine under the heart motif. 

As I'm not a huge fan of using patterned paper I decided to stamp my strip of pattern in VersaMark & heat emboss it in white. Which is what I did for the sentiment too.

I was also inspired by the colours Virginia used but scaled down the intensity and kept them a softer shade. All the supplies for this card are listed below and I hope I have given you some inspiration to join in on the challenge.

For all the challenge details pop on over HERE and be wowed by all the TIME OUT Design Team inspiration too! 

That's all from me today, I sure hope you will join in on the challenge & I look forward to seeing your creations. Until next time, thank you for stopping by today :)
