It's time for a new challenge at Time Out!!! Time Out Challenge #168 is an inspiration photo, and it is right up my alley! See the enlarged pic below for all of the wonderful details to choose from.

We are generously sponsored by Uniko, a wonderful partner and supporter of Time Out. Our Guest Designer is Enna, winner of Time Out Challenge #164. Enna is an incredibly talented card artist with mad coloring skills. Check her out on Instagram for some major inspiration!

The surfboard really caught my eye in the photo. I pulled out a dear old friend from my stash - Verve's Relax stamp set (2008). I used 2 of the 5 surf board images from the set to create a pattern for my background, colored them with Copics, and added a coat of Glossy Accents to make them shine. I then stamped, colored and fussy cut the wave and palm tree, mounted them on a rectangle along with the sentiment, and my card was complete.

Please hop on over to the Time Out Challenge Blog to see the wonderful creations that Enna and our Design Team came up with to inspire you. Come play with us!

I'm also playing at:

That gives a totally different feel; repeating the boards! And the colours are great! Hugs, Gerrina

wow I have this stamp set! Have no idea why I didn't think of using it! What fab stamping-perfection and super colouring. Super way to use the palm tree too!

Love all your fun surfboards! Beautifully colored and they make such a great backdrop for your focal panel. As a resident of a surfing town (although I am not a surfer) this card really resonates with me.

LOVE this! I have needed a surfboard stamp a couple of times lately, and seeing all these wonderfully-colored ones makes me think I need to remedy that! Such a fun collage! Thanks for sharing this with us at Retro Rubber this week!

I love this so much! I just used a surfboard stamp, one of my besties is a surfer living in Hawaii! The bright colours of your card work so well with the stamp. Thanks for joining us at Retro Rubber this time. Claire DT
