TIME OUT#61 Reminder - Inspired By Words

This week at TIME OUT, we are asking you to create something based on the following words:

Anthony J. D'Angelo

Our wonderful Guest Designer is Sue from Foleysfriend - so please stop by her blog to see how these words inspired her.

Last week I went with a rain storm inspired card and this week, I went in the opposite direction - to the beach and sunshine! I used a Simon Says stamp set (flip flop season) to stamp the flip flops repeatedly across the panel and white heat emboss them.I then watercoloured them using some Gansai Tambi paints (really vibrant IRL!) I also watercoloured the bg in a sand colour but I wasn't entirely satisfied with the look so I masked off the flip flops and used my Tim Holtz Distress Marker Spritzer tool with a couple of darker markers to add in the grains of sand - much better :) 

I die cut the panel down and mounted in on a plain white card base - and then I added a couple of greetings from the same set - stamped in black.

So that's where those words took me - where will they take you? 

Thanks so much for stopping by!


  1. That really looks like sand so great idea to mask them off. And really like how colourful they all look xx

  2. Luscious colours for those flip flops, Jill ... which are fabulous against that soft, grainy sand ... brilliant! Hugs, Anita :)

  3. Hi Jill! This is fantastic, and one of my favorite subjects, my favorite footwear and my favorite place to stand. On the beach. I love the colors and the techniques you used. LOVE!

  4. What better way to show that it is sunny and summer than flipflops! Great idea and such a cheerfull card! Hugs, Gerrina

  5. I think your sand turned out great! Boy what lot of masking though! Great job! This card is so summary and fun, I really like it. xxx

  6. I love the effect of the sand - not sure I'd have your patience though. Those flips flops (or thongs as we call them down under) are gorgeous, I'll take a pair of each please. Thanks for stopping by my blog earlier and yes I saw Simon Says Stamp have the new enamel accents - guess who put an order in this morning
