Time Out #85 - Home Sweet Home Challenge

Hi everyone!  There's a new challenge over at the Time Out blog.  The challenge is our Home Sweet Home challenge where we give you a picture from a room in a home as inspiration.
 
Here's the picture for this challenge.  What a place to relax, right?
Laura Ashley Blog | SPRING / SUMMER 2015 INTERIOR TRENDS | http://blog.lauraashley.com:

When I looked at this photo, I saw three things:  the rattan hammock and the colors pink and turquoise.  I tried to incorporate these things into my card.  I started by stamped this floral image in Versamark and embossed it with white embossing powder.  Then I created a mask for it and stenciled what I thought looked like rattan or bamboo over the rest of the card.  Then I colored the image using Zig markers.  I die cut the banner and stamped the coordinating sentiment in Versamark and embossed that in white embossing powder as well.  I mounted this onto turquoise cardstock and then mounted that on fun foam.  I spritzed it with shimmer spritz and added white sequins. 

 
Our challenge is sponsored by Happy Little Stampers.  You can see more about the prize and see what the Time Out design team and our guest, Ashwini, have as inspiration for you on the Time Out blog.
 
Thanks for stopping by!
