Calling Time on an ATC" is the theme at Artful Times Challenge Blog. I have been clearing up my craft room and trying to use up all the scraps of card I have accumulated over the year so this is a great challenge. I spent a day with my trusty Sizzix machine cutting out tags and ATCs and some other bits and bobs, they are now in a tin ready for use (if I remember they are there!!).
The background was created with distress inks in fired brick, scattered straw, I added the diamonds with a PaperArtsy mask using dried marigold distress ink. I stamped the image (one of my Christmas presents, PaperArtsy Clocks 1) using black Stazon and highlighted the wings with a little bleach. I coloured a piece of card with Distress inks and stamped out the sentiment and cut it out to fit the ATC.
Changing colours and adding a photo to the clock face and metal distress stain I put together a second ATC.
Would have loved to do some more but time is a little short at the moment, I have a list of challenges I want to enter so lots of cards, tags and other things to get on with, poor me lol.. I am also joining another design team in February Crafty Bloggers Network Blog, a fab site for you crafty ladies check it out.
