Time and numbers



Good morning to you all, it's time for our new challenge at Allsorts and this week Wendy would like like to see creation using the theme of 'Time and numbers'. Our sponsor is Hobby House.

This was a fun one to make starting with three pieces of Fabriano coated with gesso.........a great way to use the end pieces when I cut up an A3 sheet.............and created a background with Distress Crayons, then added some numbers with a stencil and dimensional paste, when that was dry I reapplied the mask and used DI's to colour the numbers. A stamped Penny Black sentiment which I thought fitted the theme rather well, some fine gauze, a piece of TL die cut honeycomb, flowers, a bow and TL Butterfly.


And a second card using the Timmy clock, some distressing and Stamp Addicts leaves, not a recent make by any means but never blogged and it fits the theme rather well.

Have a lovely weekend everyone and I do hope you will find a few moment to pop over to the challenge blog and see what my teamies have come up with to inspire you.
