"Time" for a bunch of challenges


Two posts today so be sure to scroll down!

 

Hi!  First I must tell you that this card is way out of my comfort zone but I'm commited to learn and grow so I just dove in.  I began with this sketch challenge from Posh Designs Scrapbook Store and then went looking for more inspiration.


The second challenge I found is the Stamping Sisters in Christ Challenge, SSCC27, based on Esther 4:14 to show "time".  I loved the Beth Moore study of Esther so I really wanted to do this one.

I found a couple of other challenges on SCS to use lace (WT259) and the new Free for All Challenges(F4A1) to use texture, patterned paper, and a color you don't normally use.  My rarely used color is Really Rust.  I bet its been years since I pulled that one out.

I flipped the sentiment panel, did alot of distressing and sponging and cluttered it up really good with embellishments.   I just love this quote...be sure and enlarge the photo so you can read it.

Give this sketch a try and link your creations on the Posh Designs Scrapbook blog.  They're giving a $25 gift certificate to the awesome Posh Designs Scrapbook Store.

Supplies:
Paper - Basic Grey Infuse DP, SU Very Vanilla base, PTI Vintage cream
Ink - Tim Holtz Distress Walnut, SU Really Rust
Stamps - Tim Holtz Visual Artistry
Accessories - big scallop punch, crocheted lace, stick-on pearls, dimensionals, distressing tool, die cuts


Pin It!
