Time Out Guest :D

Time Out Challenge 123Oh so grateful for being Time Out Challenge Guest Designer Badgea guest designer at the Time Out Challenge, what an HONOUR!  The two week theme is ” Black + White + 1 Colour” with the Optional Twist of being One Layer.  This last concept is still a big challenge for me but I did it, YAY!  For this card I used Liquitex Inks in gold and black.  I placed 2 drops of each colour on Bristol paper and lightly spritzed with a small water bottle.  I patiently allowed this to air dry completely.  Then I made a stencil using one of IO’s deer trio.  I added Liquitex flexible embossing paste and, before it dried, I added some WOW white puff embossing powder and zapped that with my heat gun, giving some volume and texture.  Finally, I stamped “Joyeux Noël” (Merry Christmas), from Kesi’Art,  with Versafine Ink and heat embossed with black EP.

Can’t wait to see you in the T-O gallery, thanks so much for stopping by, HUGz, JoannaIMG_3296

  1. Goodness, it feels as though I could just reach out and touch that texture-y deer, Jo … it’s fantastic … and so cool against the stylish, unstructured, spritzed black and gold background! Thanks so much for inspiring our players as our Guest Designer at Time Out! Anita 🙂

  2. Love the artsy use of the black and gold for the background and what a fun idea to add the puffy effect to the paste and heat it. Gorgeous CAS card, which is so unique and contemporary for Christmas x Congratulations on guesting x.

  3. Love the way that paint blended and the puff white ep looks great. I have some puff white somewhere – from another company – may try it out soon!

    Great design. And the one layer card isn’t easy for me, either – I like borders to add to the design, so I find it really tough!

  4. WOW again! There is so much creativity in this. Love the ink splatter with your textured deer from a homemade stencil. It’s always delightful to see what you’ve created. I did like reading about “patiently letting it air dry.” I have such a problem doing that but it was worth the wait!

  5. Love the way you stenciled the deer – the white puff embossing powder is amazing. I just bought some but haven’t tried it yet. The background is beautiful – love the black and gold!
