Today is the start of the next fortnightly challenge over at TIME OUT Challenges and this time it is a Home Sweet Home challenge inspired by this photo below...
A lovely nautical themed inspiration photo which lead to this creation below, as you can see I went with the nautical theme & was inspired heavily by all the stripes!!
I started out by using the reverse of one of my background builder stamps to stamp the wide stripes on the base card in VersaMagic Ocean Depth ink. I love the fluffy edges it created which I think has a ocean like feel to them. The boat is stamped in VersaFine Onyx Black and I masked each sail separately to stamp the red stripes using the line stamp from Background Builders: Squared.
Before adhering the boat onto the card using foam adhesive, I stamped & embossed the sentiment in detail white embossing powder staggered/stepped on the stripes to add a little more interest.
That's all from me today & unfortunately this will be my last fortnight here at TIME OUT Challenges as a DT member :( I took the tough decision to step down from the team to concentrate my extra TIME here at Uniko. I'm sure you will see me playing along with the challenges though from time to time ;)
Anyway, this fortnight we have a lovely guest designer joining us, Anni, be sure to stop by Anni's blog HERE to see how she was inspired by the photo and of course the FABulous TIME OUT Challenges Design Team...
For all the info and to link up your challenge be sure to stop by the TIME OUT Challenges blog. I look forward to seeing your creations :) I'll be back again later in the week with more to share & until then, thank you for stopping by today.
