I'm Celebrating Karen at 'Time Out'

Time Out Challenges are having a
'CASE' Challenge and have chosen
the talented Karen from Snippits.
She is super talented
and I regularly pop in to her blog to see what
wonderful creations she has been making.
Be sure to pop over and check her out for yourself.
You will be inspired.
Here is my take above on Karen's card below.
I also had the same stencil (Tim Holtz Clockwork)
as the one Karen used and had never used it till now.
I decided to try something a little different starting with
inking my paper with the stencil attached with
Tim Holtz Abandoned Coral then blotched
it with Mont Marte Pearl White Acrylic Paint
using my fingers to add depth and has added a lovely sheen.
Because of that I decided to add my sentiment
from Cas-ual Fridays to vellum embossed
with Tim Holtz Worn Lipstick.
I had fun making this as I love playing with stencils
and different mediums to see what effect you can create.
Thanks to the DT over at Time Out
for choosing Karen as their 'Case'.
I had made a few other cards before this one
so will pop them up just for you to have a look at
as they aren't quite the same as Karen's Case.

I would also like to enter this card over at one of my
Favourite Sites - The House that Stamps Built
for their Designer's Choice - Focus on Sentiment
