TIME OUT Challenge Turns THREE!

Hello,

Guess who's turning three?  TIME OUT Challenge ! Can you believe it? I remember when they just cam on board...how quickly they've 'grown,' and become one of the most popular challenges in the blog-iverse! Of course, birthdays call for celebration, and that they are doing:  Birthday Party Time!, they are having a birthday party!  

Here are a few details from the TOC gals:

"We want to spread our love and friendship for you all and so the challenge theme for our Birthday is:


Love and/or Friendship with the optional twist of 'spotlight stamping' where you add colour only to one raised area of your image

As we are having a bit of a party we have quite a few prizes up for grabs. We will have prizes for all our winners chosen by the DT, plus prizes for 3 randomly selected winners from those who twists with us....so get those colouring skills brushed off!

We have all these fabulous sponsors offering up super prizes:"



Isn't this amazing!!

As you can see, STAMPlorations is one of the sponsors, so some of the STAMPlorations Design Team and Guest Designers are joining in the fun and playing along. I'm so thrilled to be one of those Guest Designers!  

I brought out my Old Rose Prints stencil and did some 'spotlight' stenciling with pumice stone and various shades of pink distress inks. The love sentiment, from the Peace, Love, Joy Phrase set, was inked with picked raspberry...



NOTE: Honoured and thrilled to be a randomly chosen winner for the TIME OUT celebration! Wonderful opportunity to welcome Uniko products into my collection. Thank you!

Head on over to the STAMPlorations blog to see more fabulous inspiration from the team, and then pop to the TIME OUT blog to play along.  PARTY!!!
