Guest designer at Time out Challenges - Photo inspiration

Hi there!

So happy to be the guest this fortnight at one of my favorite challenges Time out challenges !

Adding to my excitement is the inspiration photo for this challenge. My favorite... black and white with a pop of color... and green it is with the added bonus of beautiful geometric patterns !

Here's my take on the inspiration :

Need a closer look ? 👀

The first thing that caught my eye was the rug on the floor with the staggered stripes. I used that as the background for my green focal point.

I used :

  • Classy-stripes-stencil - Altenew (masked and moved up and down to create the staggered stripes)
  • Versafine black ink
  • Floral-elements cutting from LoveSVG
  • Green card stock
  • Vellum
  • Birthday sentiment created in the Silhouette studio and cut out with my Cameo
  • Foam dots for dimension

The challenge is sponsored by Poppy stamps so hope to see you in the gallery !

Also sharing my card at :

AAA birthday Challenge : Use a stencil


Thanks for visiting me today!

We are over the moon to have you as Gd and I thought you might like this photo-as I do!!

And you sure did wow us with this card-I love how you used the large green die as the focal point-it contrasts so well with the photo where the green is so tiny-so very, very creative-a joy to have you with us x

Wat fijn om jou als gast-designer bij TIME OUT te hebben! En met een prachtige kaart! Gaaf hoe je de zwarte lijnen niet helemaal door hebt laten lopen; zo is het een heel speelse kaart! Groetjes, Gerrina
