Challenge #258 - Photo Inspiration


Hello friends of Time Out!

Before we have a look at our new challenge, we unfortunately need to let you all know that this is the last challenge where Gerrina will be part of our design team. Gerrina has created inspiration for Time Out for all of our existence, for 10 years... Which is quite an achievement and not something many crafters have done for one design team. We are truly grateful for Gerrina for all of her hard work and dedication. Thank you for the 10 years together, Gerrina! We'd love you to head on over to Gerrina's blog and let her know how much her artsy work has been appreciated over the years. 


For the next fortnight we have a photo inspiration challenge for you. It's Leap Year, and our new challenge opens on Leap Day! We thought it fitting to have some leaping inspiration in the form of a frog!

Here's an enlargement of the photo for viewing the marvelous detail within. Do note that you do not need to use a frog image to play along -you can for example only be inspired by the colors, patterns or shapes you see in the photo. We look forward seeing your creative takes!

Lawn Fawn is the generous sponsor of this challenge. Our challenge winner will receive a $25.00 Lawn Fawn store credit and an offer to Guest Design at Time Out for a future challenge.

We are joined by Vicki Dutcher of All I Do Is Stamp as our Guest Designer. Vicki is a very well seasoned and talented crafter with a mostly CAS style and a flair for trying new techniques. Here is what Vicki has to say about her crafting:

"Hi, my name is Vicki and I live in Arizona. I got into stamping a very long time ago, and because this hobby is so versatile, it has kept my interest. Like a lot of you, I went to a Stampin Up party, and I was hooked. Now that I am retired, it also gives me something to do! That my friends, is wonderful! I am basically a CAS stamper, but have been known to do mixed media also. I adore this hobby with all the avenues you can try. I’m thrilled to be Guesting with the Time Out team for this challenge."

This is Vicki's wonderful card. You can see it on her blog HERE to get all the details.

And now for some inspiration from our design team!
