Poppystamps Sponsoring Time Out Challenges
By Jeanne Jachna


I know you love to make, but do you like to play card challenges on line?  I do!  Especially when I'm not feeling so crafty.  They're a great place for inspiration.  I like to see what other folks who like to craft are making, what's trendy, and get ideas for new techniques to try.

Poppystamps is sponsoring the latest Time Out Challenges Blog that begins today.  That means if you make something and link it up you'll be entered to win a $20 gift certificate to the store.    The inspiration this time is  a quote that got me thinking about looking up at the stars and making a wish. 
Here's what I made! 
I started with a Distress Ink background of Shaded Lilac, Wilted Violet, and Blueprint Sketch.   I applied the inks with a make up brush.  I bought a set by Yoseng on Amazon and I wouldn't trade them for any other brush I've ever tried.  They make soft inky backgrounds FAST!  I splattered the panel with water, and then some watered down Salty Ocean ink. 
Next I cut the panel with the All Star Collage and layered it over a second panel that I inked with Mustard Seed, Mowed Lawn and Peacock Feathers.  I cut the All Star Collage a second time with a piece of gold scrap paper and used the stars as embellishments for a bit of bling. 
I double cut the Believe Fresh Script word die from white and gold card stock and then adhered them together offset so the gold glitter paper peeks out from the white cardstock.
The sentiment is from the Donut What I'd Do clear stamp set.  I put some tape over the "forget" on the sentiment before I inked it.  Next I removed the tape and stamped the sentiment so only the words I wanted "you are awesome" got inked.
 Now it's your turn!  I hope you find some time to play along!   You can find the Time Out Challenges Blog here.   For a second chance to win link up your project on the Poppystamps challenge too.  Our theme this month is Wishi Washi!  We're looking for (make a wish) Birthday cards, and / or cards that include some washi tape.

Oh wonderful and such a creative make, I do love that touch of gold behind the sentiment, missed that the first time. Thank you for sponsoring us, we appreciate it so much x

Lovely card, Jeanne. Like how you used the star collage die. This looks to be a great challenge. tfs

Fabulous colours and a great use of the collage and sentiment dies!

Hi Jeanne, This card is definitely 'awesome', the background is stunning, your brush makes a fabulous job of distress inking, I have never been able to get my backgrounds as 'smoothly' blended as yours, I am in 'awe'. Your colours are so pretty together and the die-cuts are so very effective, I absolutely love this !!
Lots of love from Patricia xx
