Guest Designing at Time Out

Hello and Welcome!

Lately I had the honour to make the top at Time Out #48 where we might CASE very talented Marika's card. And I've got a chance to guest design at very special Challenge of the Time Out challenge blog.

Time Out turns TWO!!!
Happy 2nd Birthday :)!!! 

The ladies at Time Out want for us to make something about spring to celebrate this :).

The theme is 
Easter and/or Spring with the optional technique twist of masking.

I made two one layer cards to welcome spring.
My first card was made without the optional twist.

The flower bouquet is from Sweet Posies stamp by JustRite. Before I stamped the image slightly offset I blended Salty Ocean DI on the card base where I wanted to place the bouquet. The image was stamped in blue and colored using Copic markers and Prismacolor colored pencils. I added on the stamen some little dots using Pico Embellisher and coated the flowers with clear Wink of Stella. The sentiment from Penny Black was stamped with Grape Juice Ink. I then blended the right upper corner in green and yellow using Distress inks. The butterfly was punched out from a scrap CS which I sponged in green and yellow. For final touch I added some clear sequins along with some in spring colors.

For the second card I used the masking technique.

To start off I stamped the same sentiment as on the first card in purple. I then placed a butterfly above the sentiment. This beautiful butterfly is from a mini stamp set by Technique Tuesday. I stamped it in purple, colored using Prismacolor pencils, stamped again with embossing ink and clear heat embossed it.
For the window scene, I masked off the window, clouds and the butterfly and blended Salty Ocean and Twisted Citron Distress inks. The dots made using Wedding Dress Pico Embellischer represent some spring flowers :). I added some clear sequins to finish off my card.

I hope you could get some inspiration from my cards and join in the fun at Time Out. Please hop over there and let the awesome DT ladies inspire you!

I'm looking forward to seeing your cards at the Time Out Gallery!

Have a great Spring!!!
