Reminder: Time Out Challenge # 76

Hi there everyone and welcome to my quick reminder about our current TIME OUT  challenge. We are wanting you to be inspired by the following words:


           'Friends are connected heart to heart, distance and time can't break them apart'


You can be inspired by the whole sentence or just one word, its all up to you!! And we are very excited to have CAS-ual Fridays Stamps as our Sponsor for this challenge. They will be giving the winner a $25 gift voucher to their store. And they have also just had a new release which is gorgeous, so this would be a fabulous voucher to win!!!!






For my card I wanted it to have a real emphasis on love, a great big heart and lots of white space:

 
To start off I stamped the hearts on white CS using Hero Arts Shadow Ink - Mid Tone in 'Bubblegum'. I used my MISTI which allowed me to stamp it twice to get the colour to be really vivid and I was able to stamp over top with Versamark Ink and heat emboss with clear powder. This made the hearts all shiny!! I was then able to use a mini-blending tool and Distress Ink 'Picked Raspberry' to colour over and around the heart. I used a round die from Couture Creations to cut it out.

I die-cut two arrows from white CS and stamped the sentiments in black. The heart circle was popped up on foam tape and the arrows were adhered in place with foam tape at the ends. I also added some sequins for a bit more shine.

The stamp images are all from CAS-ual Fridays Stamps 'Cupids Arrow', as well as the matching die set 'Heartboard Fri-Dies'. The sequins are from a set prepared for CAS-ual Fridays Stamps by Pretty Pink Posh for their Calling All Sistah's Collection called 'Sistahood Sparkle'. 

I have three challenges I would like to enter:
