It's New Year's Eve. There is so much to say about bidding adieu to 2020 on so many levels, but I am not going to put it all down right here. I want to say that I am grateful for the many joys, comforted in the deep sorrows, and hopeful for the future.
Time Out Challenge #178 begins today with a theme of Life In The City with an optional twist of using ink blending or sponging.
We are generously sponsored by Birch Press Design.
Our wonderful Guest Designer is Joy, a wonderfully talented crafter who is sure to inspire you. Treat yourself to a visit to her blog. You will be so glad you did!
I went with a cityscape for my card. I live close to New York City, and watching the ball drop in Times Square on New Year's Eve (from the comfort of my own or someone else's home) has been a yearly thing in my life for as long as I can remember. So with that in mind, I pulled out my new-to-me Altenew City Scene Stencil and went to work. I inked the background with Fossilized Amber, Wilted Violet, Chipped Sapphire and Black Soot Distress Inks. I stenciled the skyscrapers with Black Soot, and added the fireworks from The Ton Pyrotechnics and the sentiment with heat embossing. Voila!
Please hop on over to the Time Out Challenge Blog to see the wonderful creations that Joy and the Design Team came up with to inspire you. Come play with us!
