TIME OUT CHALLENGE #256 CASE the Designer Sarah Gray

 Hi there Crafty Friends. It's time for another challenge  at Time Out Challenges

We have a special challenge the next fortnight: Instead of our regular 'Inspired by a Photo' we have a 'CASE the Designer' challenge for you this time! We are very very happy to have a card from Sarah Gray of Funky Fossil Designs, for us to CASE. 

I was inspired by the 'opposite corner' layout and the big splashes of colour. 

I decided to use Alcohol Inks for my card and then stamped the image with Staz-on Ink, which doesn't smudge. 
Stamp: AALL & Create
Die: Penny Black Antique Frame

Funky Fossil are our generous sponsor for this challenge and they 

are kindly offering a Prize:  GBP25 Store Credit for the lucky winner.

You can see more inspiration from our talented Guest Designer,  Carol McFarland of Saw it. Had to Make It. and the rest of our fabulous DT at the TIME OUT CHALLENGES blog. 
I hope you have the opportunity to join in our challenge.

Here is another version of my card. This time it is a small square card. 

I'm also sharing my card at the following challenges:-
