The Time Out blog has a new challenge, and this time around is our Theme Challenge. The theme is Birthday with a twist of sponging. You can twist if you want, but it's not required. I chose to twist!
This card took FOREVER to make! I tried to stamp with the Distress inks I used for sponging the main panel so they would match, but they don't stamp very well. I tried so many things before I decided to switched inks.
So here's what I did. I sponged a white panel with Twisted Citron, Cracked Pistachio, and Peacock Feathers distress inks. I saw someone use these three colors together (I cannot remember who right now) and loved the look of them. Then I die cut the text block from that sponged panel. The final version of the flowers were created by sponging those three inks again and die cutting them. The leaves were inked with Pear Tart Memento Luxe pigment ink and Tide Pool and Coastal Cabana die inks. These were the closest I could find to the distress inks. Then I added enamel dots and Wink of Stella shimmer on the flowers and leaves.
You can see more from the Time Out design team and our guest for this challenge, Rema, on the Time Out blog.
