TO81 - It's Your Day
This card is for this week's Time Out Challenge, where we are being inspired by a photo:
Last week, Julie Ebersole and (*new stamp company alert!*) Flora and Fauna had an Instagram giveaway and (can you believe it?!) I WON! I won the Octagon Greenhouse (see below for link) stamp set and decided to ink it up for this challenge.
I focused on:
-the circular clock with the black-pink-black words and silver frame
-butterfly theme and colours
-soft grey repetition in the background
I like this technique of creating a 'bumped-out' focal point. I start with a 4.25x5.5 panel and then cut the circle out and remove it. I then lay the square die on the remainder of the panel and cut that. Because I popped the circle up and framed it in silver, I didn't have to cut it out of the square, I could have just adhered it on top; but this allows you to inlay it back in if you want.
