Time’s a ticking…

Friday Sketchers posted a great new sketch from guest designer Heidi and here is my interpretation of it. I went for a brown and green palette with distressing inks to age the paper and print the watch and words background on the cream (colour hasn’t come out so well in the photograph) central panel. The prominent time-piece is stamped with StazOn onto acetate and held in position with a brad, two more of which hold the sentiments. The patterned paper is from Basic Grey’s Scarlett Letter range and also edged with distress ink.

Card for boys

This card is made for a boy’s birthday. It’s funny but most of the babies I know, children of friends and family, are boys. So I seem to be making lots of cards for young boys – at the moment. I thought I would go bright primary colours for this one and add texture through embossing (by hand!) and using corrugated card collected from some packaging and painted with acrylics. Thought I would enter this card into the fab blog candy challenge on the Dies to Die For blog and also the fun challenge from Papertake Weekly 🙂

So finally…

I can up put the card that was partially inspired by period stone work in London and I partially described the making of in an earlier post. I was going to give this card to my mum for her birthday, so was delaying posting it here. But then I had a change of mind and have an even better card for you, Mum – but you will just have to wait and see 🙂
