Hi everyone! Today is the day the design team at the Time Out Challenge has been waiting for...it'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 Words: Dancing 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:
Make the Day Special - 10 £ credit to the store
Avocado Arts - One free item from the store
