memories

 Greetings,

I created the background using a book page which I gessoed then used the oxide distress inks through a stencil by Andy Skinner. I am a bit obsessed with fossil shells and the golden ratio so I have a couple of stencils and numerous stamps! I was playing with my Visible image stamps and saw how well the time spiral fitted... there will be more of these to come! Finished it off with a Tim Holtz chit chat sticker.
 
 I am entering this into That's Crafty's anything goes challenge.

I was lucky enough to visit  Sissinghurst Castle in Kent recently, it is heavenly.

Time

Greetings,

I have been playing with my new Visible Image stamps a head of time. The images are so striking and as time is one of themes I keep returning to, I lusted after them as soon as I saw them. I have used white paint in the eye and then a black dot as think this gives it a touch of the sinister.

The current simply less is more challenge is to use a colored background this is a joint challenge with AAA Cards. It is a deadly One Layer Card challenge!

I have also been getting creative/messy with paint and here is the matching tag which I think looks a little Brett Weldele ish - love his art work and lust after his rubber stamps .The drips that he often uses became splatters with paint painted on with a credit card, the background he gives his central figures was created with a baby wipe.
I am entering this into the That's crafty challenge - anything goes.

Talking of time it is by birthday in a week, I feel a bit like this butterfly, fabulous if a little worn around the edges!

Here is the Mews

 Greetings,

On a beautiful summer Sunday, once again the Tim Holtz Hipster stamps have inspired a ton of puns. I don't know about you but at the moment I read news websites from behind a cushion! which is probably where this card idea comes from.


 the less is more challenge is national flag colors so here is the union jack colors.

Here is a further one I did of the same design in green.

Hope you are having a simple delicious weekend in the sun.
