hello


Time for a new game at Time Out Challenges. Challenge #81 is a Home Sweet Home Challenge - A photo inspiration challenge with a homey twist!


Here is the inspiration for the challenge:



Time Out Challenge #81 is sponsored by STAMPlorations. The winner will receive a $15.00 gift voucher to shop at the STAMPlorations store, and a random winner winner be chosen to receive their choice of any of the stamps, dies or stencils that the Design Team have used.

Here is my take:

I chose to focus on the variations of reds/pinks plus the accents of black and gray in the photo. I stamped  STAMPlorations Coffee Cup Parade - Artsy Borders image on Ranger water color card stock with Ranger Black Archival Ink using my MISTI. I colored it with Zigs and covered the cups with clear Wink Of Stella. I die cut CUTorations Hello Sunshine Phrase Die from black cardstock, trimmed the word "hello", and glued it to the top panel.

Please head on over to the Time Out Challenge Blog to check out the wonderful inspiration pieces that the design team has created. Let the inspiration photo take you to your creative place, and make soemthing to share in the gallery. Take some Time Out to play with us!

Your coloring on the coffee cups looks great and this suits the inspiration photo really well -lots of butterflies = lots of coffee cups! Great idea! This is a fun stamp and I must consider getting it. Thanks for the inspiration!

Coffee cups instead of butterflies - just shows how inspiration can come from any element! This is such a fab card - those colours are yummy and I love how you incorporated the grey of the clock too. Jenny xx

What a clever and fun take on the inspiration, Stephanie ... the degradation in colour and shading is fabulous on this delicious row of coffee cups ... seems they're happy dancing against all that lovely white space! Brilliant! Hugs, Anita :)
