Guest Designing at Time Out Challenges

I am so happy to Guest Design for Time Out Challenges in the current challenge. Thank you so much for having me! The theme for challenge #261 is Inspired by Words: "I'm a romantic! I live for long, dreamy walks down the craft aisle." The lucky winner of this challenge gets $25 store credit to DoodlebugsWA.

I took my inspiration from the words "long, dreamy walks". Unfortunately, I don't have a craft shop in my area so I cannot take long, dreamy walks down the craft aisle so the next best thing would be long, dreamy walks in nature - preferably with green leaves on trees (no green leaves at the moment for me though, we still have snow in my area).

For my card, I used a stamp by Penny Black called Arbors and coloured the stamp with Karin markers, misted the stamp with water and stamped it onto watercolour paper. After I was happy with my result, I die cut the top of the panel with Penny Black's Note Edger die as well as a piece of dark green cardstock to get the word 'note'. The rest of the sentiment comes from Note Builder stamp set. I then used an embossing folder by Penny Black called Filigree to dry emboss a piece of cardstock that I had ink blended with Distress Oxide ink in Peeled Paint. After dry embossing it, I also lightly applied Distress Oxide ink in Rustic Wilderness to highlight the embossed parts. Lastly, I assembled the card adding a bit of craft foam behind the stamped panel so that it is raised from the embossed background.

Please do pop by Time Out Challenges to see all the wonderful inspiration provided by the talented Design Team and to take part in the challenge.

Stunning Milla! Your forest is so vivid and inviting - I love the effect of the watercolored stamp! And the way you've used the Note edger die makes it look like the forest is nestled at the foot of mountains - just brilliant! Thank you for being such an awesome guest this challenge at Time Out!
