Hi you all, hope you are enjoying your weekend, and finding time to relax and be creative. I am still waiting for spring here, the weather men keep telling us that it's gonna get warm, but we are waiting for the sun to come out and stay out!
My prize from Gaby's giveaway arrived in my mailbox today - a lovely card and tag, and two beautiful packages, which were filled with goodies.
Lots of embellishments, charms, beads and lace....
And some little stamps, and a fresco ink pad. Thanks Gaby, your goodies have a good new home with me, and will be well used!
The challenge over at Try it on Tuesday is 'Time flies', so once again, I decided to make a clock. This time I used a box, covered with paper strips, gessoed, and then with bands of tape. I also used the tape that Gaby had used on the package she sent me, as I wanted to make a Paris themed clock - time flies especially quickly there! I bored a hole for the clock, put the battery into the work, and it is ticking merrily away on my desk right now. I added some wings, some roses, and a little skull as a symbol of mortality. On the right side I hung some of the charms that Gaby sent, as one of them is an Eiffel Tower. I now have so many clocks in my apartment that I sometimes wonder if I tick properly!
The second piece is for the challenge at Fashionable Stamping, where we have to use the colours brown, red and black. I stamped the horse scene and the lion onto speciality stamping paper with Adirondack Espresso. a rich brown. I cut the horse scene into 9 equal pieces and mounted them onto a piece of red miri card. I fussy cut the lion and placed him at the front with foam squares. I added a triangle at the top of the 'window' with a stamped angel. The red roses are a glitter rub on. The stamps are from LaBlanche. I mounted it all onto black card shaped like a house. Then I decided to use it as my May calendar page, so I used some red ribbon and cord and fixed it to the page. Miri card is always hard to photograph because of the reflections.
Well, I think that is enough for today. Have a good day, have fun and thanks for coming by!
