Hello All,

Today is my last post for Time Out Challenges as their guest designer. I would like to take this moment to thank them so much for all their wonderful 'encouraging' comments. I felt welcomed and honored to be part of such an amazing team. So without further ado, here is my card for today, enjoy!

I thought I would experiment with translucent silver Yupo paper that came as part of the Yupo paper packet. I used alcohol inks to lay some color down on the paper and used various techniques to achieve this eclectic look. I kept this background for a year'ish. and decided to use it for this challenge.

I used a feather die-cut which I thought would be perfect for this alcohol panel. I kept all the negative pieces from the feather die-cut and adhered them to the base of the card. I then took the feather and adhered it to the card using dimensional adhesive. This lifted the feather off the base and provided fantastic dimensional results.
I lost one of the negative pieces and thought it was ruined but then 'eureka' I used three-dot embellishments in its place. In fact, I think it is better and brings a bit of style.
 Thank you so much for stopping by and do appreciate you taking time out of your busy day to spend it with me. I do hope you will be able to join Time Out Challenges. For me, it was great fun and I am sure it will be for you. Also, I want to again thank my hosts at Time Out Challenges for their gracious hospitality! 

Thank you all and I hope you have a fantastic day with lots of good crafting vibes headed your way.

I think you're right - those three 'dots' do really add a bit of style and are what drew me to your blog! Just goes to show...mistakes aren't always a bad thing! This is a great card - love the colours in the background...but it's only a young background, lol. I have some I made 6 years ago and more! I love backgrounds :-) Brilliant.

Wow, this is one eye-catching card!! I would never have thought it was alcohol inks. I'm a newbie with those inks and wouldn't even know where to start to create something like this!! Totally agree with using the feather die with this panel, its gorgeous and all the white popping thru is so crisp and clean. Its been wonderful having you as our GD and looking forward to seeing your entries in the future!! xx

Your card is absolutely stunning Shawna. Love the deep, rich colors. And we are so so happy to have had you guest designing with us at Time Out! Thank you so very much!

Nonni said...

Such stunning artsy creation! I love the detailed look of the background and super use of that die as well. Thank you for inspiring as more at Time Out!

Joyce said...

Your card is so beautiful. I just love the colorful inky background you created, and that feather die is lovely. I know how much work can go into putting the little bits back to do an inlaid card, so I totally appreciate all that effort. Thanks so much for being our Guest Designer at Time Out. I know you are inspiring many participants with your wonderful creations.

Your simple, powerful sentiment is beautifully showcased by this bold design, Shawna ... there's such a fantastic contrast between the delicate feather and the rich autumnal colour ... and the dimension is brilliant! So pleased you enjoyed your Guest Design time with us at Time Out ... thanks so much for being such a great inspiration! Anita :)
