Time Out

 SSS Monday Challenge
 SSS Monday Challenge

Hi everyone, this time it's my last project for the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge as a guest designer. How funny it is, the theme this time is 'Time Out', well how does Time fly  when you're having fun! 😊

In relation to this theme my own perspective to time in this was 'The Future'.

I started with a Tim Holtz Sizzix die, the Weathered Clock. I cut it out of a plastic sheet to create my own stencil with it. Then I used it on my paper with texture paste.

For the clock and the center of it I used Distress Oxide, Peacock Feathers and Salty Ocean. How nice deep and bright colours these are!

I used yellow for the background to make the contrast with the clock even bigger. For this I used normal Distress Ink, Squeezed Lemon and Mustard Seed. These colours aren't that bright at the picture as in real. But still the center pops out.

The eye is a stamp from Jane Davenport, it's the eye of the future. I made the eye more bright by using a white gel pen for the iris. The edges of the clock as well on the outside as on the inside were done with black Distress Crayon. It's a very detailled job to do this without smuthering it all over the blue pieces.

For the letters around the clock saying "Only Time Will Tell" I used Tim Holtz Type Lower Foam Stamps. At the base I used Distress Ink Walnut Stains and on top of that Distress Oxide Walnut Stains was stamped twice. For this I use my Stamp Platform from Tim Holtz. To give the letters extra dimension I surrounded them with a white gel pen and a black marker.

For the stamping on the background I used a stamp from Prima Flowers 'Mindful'. It's a head looking into the future. Then I spotted the little bird on the head and used it a few times more on my card. The bird is waiting so patiently for something to happen. So I thought in order to 'Only Time Will Tell' let's place this bird on more places.

And at the end I added the tiny little apples. Yes they are really tiny! Just to give it a little sparkle.

Hope you all enjoyed this blog about how it's made and love to see you again when I'm going on with my craftwork!
