Thinking of You (Time Out Challenge)

Hello and welcome

I am thrilled to have been invited as Guest Designer for the newest challenge over at Time Out. The challenge is “to get you out working in the garden!”

I love the garden, so this is a perfect challenge for me. My thought was a garden trellis with flowers cascading over it. This month’s challenge is sponsored by Altnew, so it was an easy decision on which stamp company to use.

I started by stamping Altnew – Pen Sketched Flowers in Distress Inks and watercolouring them in a mix Distress Inks. They were then fussy cut.

The navy blue card front was stamped randomly with Altnew – Fragile Foliage in white ink.

Altnew – Layered Plaid Cover Die A was cut twice from white card and overlaid to give a more filled in trellis.

The flowers were then added to the trellis – some on top and some woven through it, before being added to the card front.

The sentiment is from Altnew – Inked Lotus set.

I had lots of fun making this one.

I hope you will join in the fun at Time Out. Don’t forget to check out the wonderful creations by the amazing Design Team.

I would like to say a huge Thanks to Time Out Challenges for having me as their Guest Designer!!!

I look forward to seeing what you create!

Thanks so much for taking the time to visit.  I love to read your comments.

Stay safe and have a good day

Cheers

Helen

I live in sunny Queensland, Australia with my husband and daughter. Since I was a child, I have always loved to create and have enjoyed all kinds of crafts, sewing and painting. China painting helped develop my understanding of colour and design. Over the last few years card making has taken up a major part of my crafting time as I love to play with new techniques and mediums. Since beginning my blog, entering various challenges has encouraged me to grow my skills and creativity.
