TIME OUT Challenges - Valentines & Twist Hearts


It's time for the next challenge over at TIME OUT Challenges! This fortnight is a theme challenge, the theme being...

 Valentines with the optional twist of Hearts

We have a FABulous sponsor for this challenge... STAMPlorationsThere are 2 ways to win prizes:

1. Twist with us (use hearts) and we will do a random draw and the winner will get a $15 voucher for the store.
2. Comment on Shery's post at stamplorations for this challenge and we will do a random draw and the winner will get a stencil pack from stamplorations.

Here is my take on the theme...

I decided to make a OL card and went for a floral heart. My 'go to' set at the moment is Background Builders: Vines again! I just love using the ditsy flowers, they make me happy :)

I started by die cutting a heart shaped mask from copy paper and temporarily adhered it to my card. I then used a trio of Memento Luxe inks and stamped my floral pattern. Once it was dry I added some Wink of Stella to the larger flowers, you can just about see the sparkle in the photo below...

This fortnight we have a lovely guest designer joining us, Valentyne, be sure to stop by Valentyne's blog Flourishtina to see how she was inspired by the photo and of course the FABulous TIME OUT Challenges Design Team...
