TIME OUT #66 - Photo Inspiration Reminder

We are one week into our current photo inspiration challenge at Time Out but there is still lots of time to play along and possibly win one of the prizes offered by our generous sponsor, Stamplorations. Sheri, the Stamplorations owner and Time Out DT has offered: a $10 gift voucher to their store for the winner AND there be two random draws for stamp sets Trendy Leaves 2 and Holiday Expressions: Thankful.

Here is the photo to inspire you:

We are also lucky enough to have Claire from Life on the Scrap Heap with us as a guest designer this week - her cards are beautiful so please check them out!

Here is what I cam up with this week:

For my card this week, I took my inspiration from the brick wall and the Atumn colours of the leaves. I started out by painting a blank piece of card stock with some Silks acrylic glazes in some yellow, orange, and red colours - hard to see in the photo but these glazes have some gorgeous shimmer. Once they were dry, I stamped Stamplorations Trendy Flowers in Archival Black on the card stock, and fussy cut around the edges to create the flowers. I used a brick stencil to add some embossing paste to the card base, and then added the flowers. I finished off the card with a CAS-ual Fridays sentiment white embossed on a black banner, and a few sparkling clear sequins.

We can't wait to see how you will be inspired by our current Time Out challenge!

Thanks for stopping by!
