S'troom o'clock


It's the first Sunday of the month so time for our new challenges at Stamping Sensations and Penny Black and More challenges where our themes are 'Make it Masculine' and 'Say it with Flowers'. 

My SS creation at the top is an early preview of one of my samples for this coming Tuesday's Chocolate Baroque Hochanda shows when Lesley will be launching some stunning new stamps, this one is called The Stroom Clock.......well of course it is! Whilst this one lends itself to masculine cards there are two more sets with a distinct feminine feel to them but still carrying a clock theme. The shows are at 10am and 3pm so do tune in or set record.

The background is watery Oxides blown around and some stencilling using CB stencils, the main clock and mushroom image stamped with Versafine Clair and the the mushrooms stamped again, cut out and triple embossed with details clear EP and some gilding was around the edges. I added some metal clock hands and a sentiment from the same stamp set.


Oxides again for the masked strip on this one, the masking tape removed and the beautiful Penny Black Orchid stamped using Distress Markers direct to stamp.

Have a good Sunday everyone.

Two beautiful cards Brenda. Both very well designed and in lovely colours. The clock one can be used for all kinds of looks and the adding of metal clock hands is a very good idea. A beautiful flower in lovely colours on your second card. Take care, Marlies x

Two brilliant cards. I love the first stamp with the mushroom and the clock face. will be watching that for sure on Tuesday. Love the sentiment on the second card and your masking is perfect. I think i am going to have to bite the bullet, don my face mask and make a visit to an Osteopath as my shoulder is not improving and am now getting cramp in my lover arm and fingers. Hugs Mrs A.

Ciao Brenda, la card maschile con i funghi è favolosa! Davvero interessante con quello sfondo delicato, l'orologio e i funghi decorati!! Le lancette impreziosiscono molto il tuo design!
Molto bella anche la seconda card con quei colori vibranti e i bei fiori!!! Mi piace molto l'effetto che hai ottenuto mascherando la striscia, devo ricordarmelo!
Spero che tu stia meglio.
Un grande abbraccio
