time out challenge guest designer!!!

Hello!!  I'm so excited to be guesting with the fabulously talented Time Out challenge team!  I was picked as the winner of the Home Sweet Home (challenge #10) challenge.  And seriously when I saw I was the winner my mouth fell open, lol!!  Anyway... the new challenge is "Inspired by Words" and the sentiment is "if Music be the food of love, Play on".   All the challenge details can be found here.  For my card I focused on the music aspect of the sentiment and came up with this:


I used the Penny Black set Butterfly Symphony, as well as the Hero Arts Music Background stamp and played around, again, with some simple watercoloring.  I stamped the swirl on watercolor paper using VersaMark ink, applied white embossing powder and then heat set.  The same thing was done with the butterfly.  Once I had my cardstock embossed I got to work adding the colors.  For the main piece I used Ranger Peacock Feathers and Salty Ocean distress inks and the butterfly I used Spiced Marmalade and Ripe Persimmon.  After the main panel dried I stamped it with the Music background stamp using SU!'s Coastal Cabana ink, the sentiment using black ink and then the piece was matted with black cardstock.  I adhered the butterfly, added the rhinestones to the body and then adhered the piece to my card base.

Popping this into the current Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge:  Anything Goes, as well as the Simon Says Stamp August Work It Wednesday.

Thanks for stopping by... and thanks to the Time Out team for giving me the opportunity to guest design with them!

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white and black; Ranger watercolor paper; Stamps:  Penny Black & Hero Arts; Inks:  Ranger distress inks; VersaFine black; SU! Coastal Cabana; Rhinestones:  Stampin Up!
