2nd Fab Friday Challenge

Here it is, another Friday, don't they just fly round. With the speed of time in mind that is what I have choosed as the theme - Time. You can have a play on the word (timeless, time flies), or just have images of clocks, the choice is yours.


I have been thinking just how quickly the days, weeks and months pass when you get older. When your a kid the 6 weeks holidays went on forever - now it would feel like 2 weeks had passed. Is is because then there was nothing really to worry about, no deadlines or to-do lists. How blissful.


Anyway, for my card I have used Tim Holtzs distress inks for the background, and stamped Old Father Time directly on the card. I have then stamped him again, this time on white card coloured in the image and cut it out. I then matted it directly over the image stamped on the card. I stamped two different clock faces, colour tinted them with distress inks and matted them onto the card, allowing them to fall off slightly (trimming off the excess). I'm not sure if the stamps I have used are still available. I bought them from the Art-Kure stand at a large show, many moons ago. The reference on them is FSP120 It's About Time - just in case you like them. I love them.


I hope this inspires you. Thank you all for joining in on the first challenge. Its great seeing your work, and its a great link to lots of new and exciting blogs and photobuckets - its a massive world out there isn't it!


Have a wonderful Easter, hopefully lots of extra time to get your crafting done!!
