Friday Focus

Hi I'm here today with a card for the current Time Out Challenge. I was lucky enough to get picked as an Honourable Mention with this card, so I'm back playing there again this fortnight.

It's a CASE with your own twist challenge - one of my favourite things to do - and the card being CASEd was created by the amazingly talented Ksenija from Sweet Kobylkin.  Here's my card:

I loved the narrow strip down the left hand side and the curved sentiment round the foliage of Ksenija's card and picked up on both for my card.

I also matted my image card onto a larger card, but changed up the colour to red - my CASE twist -  to pick up on the flower colour.

Stamps: Uniko, Beautiful Blooms III
Ink: Memento, tuxedo black
Promarkers: marsh green, crimson, cool grey 1
Washi: SU

I'm mega thrilled to have had you visit my blog today, huge thanks for your time.  And keep crafting!

  1. Gorgeous cards Jane. Love the colours. Love the off edge stamping. Love the tiny side strip. Love it! X

  2. Well done! And this one is gorgeous! To me it looks so perfect it could be store bought! I wish I was that I dunno....'clean' in my scrapping :):) Sigh. Instead I'll just have to come see the expert at work, LOL!!!

  3. LOVE this Jane! Beautiful rich colours and loving the combo of Beautiful Blooms III and the Freebie stamp - simply stunning. Hugs Bev x

  4. OMG Jane ! This is so beautiful ! I love the contrast of the white central image over the red background ! And this stamp is so beautiful together with your colouring ! I love the way you coloured in grey around the outlines, that way the flower is popped up ! And the final touch with the green dotted strip of paper is just gorgeous ! Thanks for sharing and for inspiring.
