Time flies....

....it certainly does! Saturday has arrived once more at the speed of light! What happened to last week, I must have blinked and missed it:)! The new challenge at Sweet Stampin' is 'Take Flight' so we want to see those winged things on your creations. I used this amazing Steampunk Owl digi image from Aurora Wings. I wanted it to  look metallic, so it's coloured with a combination of gold and bronze Twinkling H2O's and metallic gel pens. It honestly does look better IRL, kind of shimmery and  metallic-y. The background is made by covering 2 pieces of white cardstock with shades of green pan pastel, stamping the gears in distress inks. A few gears stamped randomly with versamark and embossed in copper. A little frontage added to the edges of the bottom layer of card and scattered lightly over the top layer. The clock is Tim Holtz (still my favourite die!). The stamped sentiment attached with 'screw' brads. I had such a lovely time making this!
 
This is such a lovely challenge, the possibilities are endless....! I do hope you'll be tempted to join us this week, there is a lovely prize  from our sponsor Crafty Ribbons waiting for a lucky someone!

  16. Oh Wow Chris! What a brilliant card! Such a clever idea to have the owl flying through the die cut! So creative! I'm rubbish at photography, its so tricky to capture glitter and shimmer, I can however imagine how beautifully the light catches those wings! X
