with sympathy

For this weeks Paperbabe challenge it is "Anything Goes", well, I'm definitely not a fan of any challenge that has an anything goes title, like I have said before, I need a starting point, or else my mind just goes blank!!!. so I looked at other companies challenges, and That's Crafty have a "clean and simple challenge, so I thought that I would combine the two. Now I know it seems easy, but clean and simple....just aint so simple!!!...but I have to say I love the watery effect of this card, and I just adore Kim Costello's paperbabe stamps.

Time Flies

I am entering this card in this months VISIBLE IMAGE Challenge where the subject is dimension. I used the clock and the wings from the Time after Time stamp set, adding dimension by adding silicone glue to one of the clocks so it stands out and then adding silicone glue to the wings for added height and dimension.
The background was actually a gelli print that I didnt like that much, but I just added a bit of spiced marmalade distress oxide and stamped the numbers from the same stamp set as the other stuff, and I loved it, which goes to prove my theory, of which I am sure all you crafters are the same.... when in doubt, never bin it, just add a bit more ink....even if it is that terrible that you have to cover it with white gesso!!!! annnnnd...bobs your uncle!!!!

Oldie but Goodie!!

I am entering this card in two challenges this week,  Stampotique Designers Challenge...and the Country View Crafts challenge.  Stampotique are asking you to bring out an old stamp that you havent used in a while, but love!!..well.. that's not hard to choose, I love all the Daniel Torrent stamps, and Buru is one of my faves, I have also used the Giant Shroom stamp and the Daniels Hearts stamp too....which brings me onto the Country View Crafts Challenge where the challenge is to use hearts, sooooo...two birds, one stone...and all that!!!.
