Time Out Challenges #81

Hello all new and old friends of TIME OUT

Our challenge for this fortnight is our 'Home Sweet Home' photo inspired by interior design.

Here is my card using the fabulous stamp set Trendy Butterflies 2 by our sponsor STAMPlorations. This stamp set is amazing. I love it as soon as I saw it and each image stamps so cleanly. The sentiment are wonderful and very unique.


Here is our photo that inspired my card:



I am sure you can see I was inspired by the butterflies but also went with the soft grey background-stamping all the small butterflies in this set randomly on a die cut circle which represented the clock. And yes my friends I have coloured the butterfly in my basic way and use Wink of Stella for some sparkle.

I found this photo so inspiring and although it is tempting to go with butterflies there are plenty of other directions you could take-numbers, clocks, explosions of colours, I also see the use of vellum here (not sure why but take a peek at the edges of the photo) I cant wait to see what you come up with.

Our Guest Designer for this challenge is the inspiring Michelle. She won our Birthday challenge out of so many entries and we are over the moon she agreed to join us for this challenge. Check out blog here and her Instagram account here-lots of stunning cards to be found.

We have lots of amazing prizes up for grabs from our sponsor Stamplorations-check them out on our main blog Time Out where you will also see what our Guest Designer and DT have made to inspire you.

Time to kick back and craft-let your creativity fly!

I will enter this into:
