TIME OUT Guest Designer

On May 15, I had the honor of winning the TIME OUT challenge, "CASing Virginia Lu" with  this card.  With the win came an offer of a guest designer spot.  I emailed Nonni and said "YES!!"  It was something I never thought I would ever be invited to do and I was thrilled.  Thank you, Nonni and Sandie, for giving me the opportunity.

The theme for the TIME OUT #7 challenge is "Summer" - with an optional  twist of flowers.  Considering how much I love flowers (and watercoloring) I had to use the option.


There's nothing I love to see more in summer than a field of wildflowers.  I used a cute little stamp set I got from Technique Tuesday and Distress Inks, spritzing the stamps with water before stamping on watercolor paper.  I backed the panel with Simply Chartreuse cardstock and used a handwritten sentiment from SSS, done in Rich Cocoa ink.

So what would you do for a summer theme challenge?  Why not head over to TIME OUT and see what the Design Team has to inspire you and then enter a card yourself.
