Time Out #44...Happy Mother's Day




Hello and welcome to a new challenge at Time Out.  This week, our challenge is a CASE challenge, and we have this gorgeous card from Karen of Snippets to inspire us.

Karen's Inspiration Card


I was inspired by the layout of Karen's card as well as her technique.  It looked to me like she had stencilled an image, and then sprayed drops of water on her image.  

So.....I used an ARTplorations Old Rose stencil and Distress Abandoned Coral ink to create my colored panel, dropped some water on the flowers using just a little paint brush, and then stamped my sentiment partly on my image and partly on my card front, just like Karen.

I did not set out to make a Mother's Day card, but that is what this card wanted to be, so I went with it.  Sometimes that just happens, and I will now have a head start for next May.



I hope that you will take some Time Out to play along with us over the next two weeks.  Please see the Time Out challenge blog to see more inspiration from the Design Team and our Guest Designer Jen.


Thanks for Visiting
