Turn Back Time

Good Morning Everyone, 

Today is the turn of another challenge over at Eclectic Ellapu. 

This weeks theme is from the pink team and was selected by the very talented Sandi. This weeks theme is "TIME"

This was a bit of a head scratcher for me this time around. However luckily for me I keep back copies of some of my magazines so went to the -what I call library- to have a look through for inspiration and on one of the past issues of Craft Stamper here was a delightful little pocket watch and sentiment stamp, so that was it it was decided to use that. 

To make the card I folded an A4 piece of card in half long ways, and matted and layered it, to make the mats I used my Ink Dusters and distress inks. For the sentiment background I used the free stamp and stamped it using three different coloured brown inks two being distress ink and one being a memento ink pad.  For the top layer I stamped the clock three times in the darkest colour then stamped two of the sentiment stamps to hide the blank space. The card was completed with a dark brown promarker run around the edges of the layers and 6 pieces of Card Candi. 

Here is the end result. 

Sorry about the photo, I just could not get it to photograph correctly. ggrr

The challenges I am going to enter this into are:-
Brown Sugar Challenge - Boy/Man
Stampin' for the weekend - Anything Goes 
Stampin' with the Dragon - Anything Goes
Creative Card Crew - No Designer Paper

That is it for me, got lots of things coming up soon, so please pop back when you get to mins.
