Time Out Challenges Guest Designer

I'm so excited to be guest designing at Time Out Challenges!
There are four challenge rounds and the current round is to CASE a card
and give it your own little twist. Nonni chose this card.

And here's how I CASE'd it.

I used the same Memory Box stencil and ink distressed two colors of dye inks
on watercolor paper. The sentiment was die cut and heat embossed twice with gold powder.
The piece was splattered with gold paint and I added a few gold sequins.

The "twist" was that this time, I used the stencil as a stencil
compared to the original card where the stencil was stamped with water.

Visit Time Out Challenges and see how the rest of the design team CASE'd the card
and join the challenge if you can. I'm so looking forward to seeing how the card is CASE'd!

Thanks so much for stopping by today, and thank you to Nonni
and the rest of the team for choosing my card to CASE.

  15. Hi Donna, I am still on hols but wanted to pop by and say what a fab collection of cards your card has inspired. I have been looking through the gallery and they are stunning. I noticed you have visited some and commented and thanked them for joining us, we really appreciate that. I wasn't meant to be commenting as I am away but when the wifi works I have to comment on those I can. Wow how hard it will be to choose a winner. Thanks again for doing this for us, we are thrilled and so great you inspired such a wonderful selection of cards xx
