Anything Goes - Challenge 65 - Tick Tock
Well..... it's time for another challenge at Anything Goes..... we had a spectacular number of entries for our last challenge... why don't you pop over to the challenge blog to see if you were a winner?
Now this time the challenge theme is 'Tick-Tock' - so I scoured my brain and my craft room to try to come up with something with a clock or watch on it..... and the only thing I could find was a very old stamp which came free with the Craft Stamper mag years ago. The stamp is almost perished it's that old ! But I decided to have a go at using it - and it still held ink and gave a reasonable image, it was all systems GO! (See? My hoarding instincts sometimes pay off!) I stamped three images, cut them out, then used Tim Holtz Distress inks in Vintage Photo and Old Paper (available from The Craft Den) which I sponged on and around the edges of the images to make them look old. I then used sticky foam pads to 3D them - and I'm afraid I can't remember the make of the paper, it's been in my stash for such a long time! I did a quick sentiment on the PC and gave it the same DI treatment... and called it done with a bit of matting and layering. Not my usual pink and girly glittery type of card as you all know.... but needs must for this challenge!! Check out my lovely teamies over on the blog where I know you'll be fabulously inspired by gorgeous cards - rather than my card - I haven't decided who I'm going to send this to yet, but not sure they'll thank me for it!! hehe
That's it from me today... we're in the middle of having our kitchen ripped out and redone so pity me - I have to be here for the workmen, but won't be able to get in my kitchen....... but ohhhhhhh, now, perhaps I should spend the day in my craft room?????? Sounds like a PLAN!!
Big hugs and Happy Crafting
