Hello all! My post today is a reminder for our current Time Out challenge. It's our Inspired by Words challenge and the quote is "Dream Big, Be Grateful, Give Love, Laugh Lots".
We are sponsored by Uniko for this challenge, so I used some of their products on this card. I started by creating the square background for the floral image. I used the new Masking Squares stencil from Taylored Expressions to get the square shape by adding color using spiced marmalade distress oxide ink. Then I laid the Tiger Print stencil by Uniko over it and used the same ink. It made the stripes a darker shade of the spiced marmalade. Then I stamped the floral image from Uniko's Just Because stamp set in a dark brown color. (It looks black, but it's actually brown.) I stamped the sentiment (from C. Pooler) in the same brown ink. I love how the stripes seem to go through the floral image. I didn't expect that result.
Now I have to come clean about the next two cards. When I was making the card for this challenge, I was so focused on using the sponsor's products (Uniko), that I totally forgot to keep with the Inspired by Words challenge. This happens a lot! So, I made the next two cards first using the same procedure as above except I used bundled sage distress oxide ink. These sentiments don't actually go well with the challenge quote! I always need sympathy cards, so they won't go to waste, but I need to get my head together when making cards for my challenges! LOL!
