On the Wings of Time


Good frosty morning to you.  It is soooo cold here today that I don't even want to think about going outside. Oh how I hate winter. Unfortunately I am still going to have to leave the house and go to work. Before I head off, I have another card to share with you today.

This card incorporates a new stamp that I had been wanting for oh about forever now and I picked it up on Boxing Day for an excellent sale price.  I have stamped it twice with Archival ink and the added some colour using Distress inks. The butterflies were cut from the second stamping and shaded with DI before attaching them with the tiniest pop dots that I have ever come across.  To highlight the main clock I have used glossy accents on the face and then added some of the clock hand from Tim Holtz.

Taking inspiration from one of Tim's 12 Tags of Christmas I have added a bookplate with the sentiment behind it and then filled it with Glossy accents to create a faux acrylic centre. It is hard to see in the photo but the result it creates is gorgeous.

I hope that you have enjoyed your visit. Have a great day and stay warm.

This card will be entered into the following challenges:
