Time Out Challenge #1

Hi everyone!  Today is the day the design team at the Time Out Challenge has been waiting's our very first challenge!  Out challenges will run every two weeks with a different challenge each time.  The rotation of challenges will be as follows:
1.  Inspired by words
2.  Home sweet home (photo inspiration)
3.  Theme with an optional twist
4.  CASE with your own twist

Our first challenge is Inspired the WordsDancing in the Rain.   I chose this old stamp from a Paper Makeup Stamps set called Raindrops and Rainbows.  I thought it fit the challenge well.  I started with some modeling paste colored with distress ink and spread onto a stencil from Tim Holtz.  While it was still wet, I sprinkled on some Martha Stewart glitter.  The umbrella was first cut from pretty paper by Memory Box called Minuet.  I've had it for quite some time and this is the first time using it!  I then cut the handle from chocolate cardstock and added a felt bow. 

 I loved this sketch from Retro Sketches when I first saw it, and I had another idea for it that I still may play with if I find some time!

We have two sponsors for our first challenge and they are:

I'm totally digging your glittered colored modeling paste stenciling, Lisa! The mixed media girl in me did cartwheels when I saw your card and read how you did that part. So happy to be on the same DT with you! :o)
