Hey, Wasabi?


It's time for a new challenge at Time Out!!! Time Out Challenge #169 is a theme challenge in which the theme is "Season" with an optional twist of coloring. Many of us will immediately think of the four seasons of the year, but we can also season our food with herbs and spices, or become a seasoned (experienced) player or professional... there are many ways to go with this. It's always fun to see how artists interpret a theme.

We are generously sponsored by Poppystamps.

I really wanted to go in a different direction than seasons of the year with this one. I looked through my entire stash for something in the herbs and spices category, but did't really have anything like that. They I thought about the Essentials by Ellen Wasabi set and decided what I was going to do.

I combined the sketch from CAS(e) This Sketch #386 and the theme from Inspired By Challenge #IB138, and came up with my card. The idea is that sushi can be "seasoned" with soy sauce and wasabi and ginger, etc. That might be a little far out of the box, but that is the way I went. I was too late to enter my card in the Inspired By Challenge, but it was definitely part of my inspiration. I stamped, colored and die cut the images from Wasabi and arranged them on the diagonal on a panel that is embossed with the SU Tasteful Textile embossing folder. Some of the die cuts are popped up and some are not. I am so happy with the way it came out.

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

I love this take on the challenge-such a superb idea and also I like where you mention a seasoned player.....never thought of that take-wow your creativity was flowing here! And a card close to my heart-hubby and I love, love Japanese food-our fav!! And what a superb design. Love how you layered all these up, must have taken ages and then adding it on the embossed panel adds a lovely texture x
