Time Out #193...Thinking About You and Smiling...


It's time for a new challenge at Time Out.  We challenge you to make a card inspired by this quote above.  I was inspired by the rose--which I interpreted to be all flowers and the word friend.  I used stamps from our sponsor, CAS-ual Fridays--- Flowery Background and Lovely Greetings (retired) to create my cards.  

I mad two cards this week because I was so in love with this Flowery Background stamp that I couldn't stop myself.

For my first card, I stamped my background, then very quickly went over the flowers with 2 shades of yellow Copic markers.  I didn't do very detailed coloring and shading--just quick brushes.  I stamped and fussy cut my sentiment and then popped it up with foam tape.

On my second card, I stamped the flowers in one of my favorite turquoise inks, then die cut a window to show my sentiment. 

Please head over to Time Out to see more inspiration from our fabulous Guest Designer, Jen Wills, and the Time Out Design Team.  CAS-ual Fridays is our sponsor for this challenge.  Details for the prize are on the Time Out Challenge Blog.

This challenge will run for two weeks.  I hope you will take some Time Out of your busy schedule to play along with us.  

Thanks for Visiting
