Good morning folks, we have a sunny morning at last although still very windy and boy did we have some nasty weather over the weekend - really wild and wet!
Over at Make My Monday today, we have the last of April's theme of Men and Boys chosen by Caz and this week we would like to see your creations with a Time theme.
I got really inky fingers making this and had to visit my parents in law yesterday afternoon with them still rather blue as the ink takes a while to come off!
I made the background by inking a square of card with Tumbled Glass Distress ink then applied the Tim Holtz clock mask and sponged on a mix of Bundled Sage, Peeled Paint, Stormy Sky and Vintage Photo. I stamped some text (Viva Decor) with the Vintage Photo around the edges and then added this to my card blank.
I inked a further scrap of card with the same Distress inks then stamped on the bird design (Papermania Urban collection) with black ink. I used the Tim Holtz clock die to cut a clock from white card, inked this up with Vintage Photo and Chipped Sapphire DIs and then embossed with clear powder whilst the ink was still wet. I used it as a template to add some ink around the bird design which I cut out roughly to the shape of the die. I then glued on the clock and realised that I got the positioning wrong but I actually like the rather grungy effect it gives!
I finished off with a stamped, inked and cut out bird from the same stamp set and text printed with a Dymo.
Don't forget we have a lovely prize from Marianne Design for the lucky April winner and that you have to be in it to win it! All details are on the challenge blog.
