Tuesday, 22 January 2019

Good morning, peeps! Can you believe it’s already the 22nd January?  I think the theme of our brand new challenge over at Try it on Tuesdays, Time Flies., is very apt. Or maybe I’m just getting older, lol.

Here’s what I’ve made for the challenge…

The background is a mixture of Oxide and Distress inks, smooshed onto the cardstock after laying some down on my craft mat and spritzing with water, then a little more blended in over the top. Shading was added with Prisma Pencils.

The main image is from Paperartsy and the time text from Non Sequitur. ‘Time’ is from my old favourite company, sadly no longer in business, Time to Stamp. Rubber Dance have some of Kristy’s images, though they are often smaller than the ones I have.

Please go see the fantastic artwork from the rest of the team here

We would love you to join us in the challenge. Time is a great theme.

Look forward to seeing you there. You have TWO WEEKS to enter!

Back soon

Thank you so much for visiting…

Love the blend you have achieved with those colours Cath, the white highlights have really helped make that clock image stand out from the page. Fabulous!!
It's amazing how the month is flying by so quickly.

A beautifully executed card Cath. I love anything to do with Time and so this is of special interest to me. Great background and with the addition of the pencil crayon just perfect colourways.
I seem to have missed so much of your work this past couple of weeks - need to play catch up now.
Hugs, Neet xx
