Hi everybody, popping in quickly to remind you about our current challenge at TIME OUT!
Its a 'Home Sweet Home' challenge and this is the inspiration photo. You can be inspired however you like. Maybe with the colour scheme, the room itself or maybe by the photos printed on the fabric. The choice is yours!!
I really wanted to play around with the 'french' side of things as I keep seeing the Eiffel Tower print on the back pillow. So I rummaged through my patterned papers again and you wouldn't believe what I found:
I can't believe I was lucky enough to find two different papers that worked perfectly for this challenge. Maybe its telling me I should use papers more often......
I came across this paper from October Afternoon 'Travel Girl' that has an old-time street map of Paris. I cut a piece slightly slimmer than my card front, made sure it had the Eiffel Tower on it and popped it up with foam tape on the card. Now while I was going through the 'Travel Girl' collection, I found the sticker sheet that came with it, and there was this gorgeous wee 'french' doggie. Its extremely rare for me to use stickers on my cards but I couldn't resist, so he was popped up on foam tape as well.
It was then I remembered that I had one French language stamp somewhere, and after a lot of searching I found it. Its from a Fiskars set called 'Say What?'. I stamped it on a small white CS banner and glued it behind the doggie. And that was that!!
I going to link this to the Simon Says Stamp - Wednesday Challenge where their theme is 'Anything Goes'.
You have until next Wednesday March 2nd to link your projects to the TIME OUT challenge and the rest of the Design Team have some more creations on the blog to give you some ideas. Looking forward to seeing your designs in the Gallery!
