Timeout Challenge 27

I've never played at Timeout before but have looked at it, since I follow my fellow New Zealander, the very talented Shona Chambers. I like the idea of taking timeout, especially on such a beautiful autumn morning as this one is.

The challenge is CAS with an optional twist of black, white and a splash of one colour. I like this idea, so have had a go at the twist. The trees are not yet turning, but I've taken Calypso Coral as my colour and, as you see, the splash is quite literal!

At Just Us Girls, the challenge is Black, White and another colour, so I will enter there too. This is another challenge I've never entered but have discovered through either following other people's blogs or through commenting on other people's lovely work. It's one of the great things about the blog world - there's always more to see and do.

The top layer of the dragonfly was clear embossed to give it some zing and it catches the light beautifully.

Card: Whisper White, Calypso Coral, Black.
Stamps: Clearly Besotted Say it in Style, SU French Foliage, SU Gorgeous Grunge.
Ink: Black, Calypso Coral
Other: Spellbinders Dragon Delight, Black rhinestones.


  1. Hi JAn, I am so pleased you found our blog. We are so lucky to have the talented Shona on our team! I absolutely love your card. The design is perfect, so very elegant but with a touch of funky! The script is elegant and the splatter so funky. Plus there is the drama of the red and black. A real stunner, I really hope you join us again x

  2. So exciting to see you at TIME OUT and your card is spectacular!! I love the effect of the printing under that dramatic dragonfly and the splatters are a brilliant embellishment. Gorgeous CAS card and I hope you can come back and play again!!!!

    1. Thanks Shona. It's a great die - fiddly to get all the bits out but the old baking paper trick helps.

  3. CAS and beautiful! Love your choice of color! Thanks for joining us at Just Us Girls...we so appreciate it!

  4. Your card is lovely! The pop-of-red dragonfly, nestled atop the script and splatter combination has me swooning (usually reserved for butterfly cards, so this tells you how impressive your card is!). Gorgeous!

  5. Wow! What a beautiful CAS card! Love that dragonfly and the splatter of color. Thanks for joining us at Just Us Girls!

  6. Wow, this is a real beauty, Jan ... that delicate dragonfly is just gorgeous against the fine black script and all that yummy splatter! Thanks so much for playing along with us at Time Out ... do come again! Anita :)
