Time Flies

I can’t believe that Tuesday is here again and it’s time for another Mid Week Little Extra from the team over at Daring Cardmakers.

Another Midweek challenge based on the traditional and modern gift lists for Wedding AnniversariesThis time we've chosen the 3rd Anniversary, so you have the choice ofPaper or Clocks to inspire your card making this week - which is nice and easy don't you think?Remember, your card doesn't have to be an anniversary card, it can be for any occasion, we're just using the themes for inspiration purposes!
I though that just going with the paper might be the easy root to take so I decided to have a stab at the clock.
There’s paper in there too obviously so I think I have it well and truly covered!

I started out with a Caramel coloured card and stamped some clock faces all over it to create a subtle background. The centre panel started life as plain Cream which I’ve sponged with Distressing Ink in three colours, Tattered Rose, Dried Marigold and a touch of Faded Jeans and then spritzed so the colours run into each other. Over the top of this I stamped some fine text using Penny Black’s Letter Background stamp and then some various travel related stamps from Clear Choice Stamps Journey Collection.

The clock face is also a Clear Choice stamp. I stamped this onto a strip of Cream card, added some faux stitching along the edges and then mounted it onto a strip of torn patterned paper and then onto the card and added a ribbon.
Finally I printed ‘Time to Travel on to some Vellum, using my computer, tore the edges and attached it to the card with two little brass brads.

Now that the dare out of the way I can tell you about my day yesterday.
I went to see my pal Lythan and we had fun playing with our crafty toys, having a good old natter and we had lunch in the garden, it was really fab.

We did actually make a few cards too. Here's what I managed to make.
