Time and Prima wait for no (Wo)man

Today I have for you a clock made by Gina’s designs decorated using the papers from my warehouse box from Prima. The box I got was packed full of goodies and in amongst it were some wonderful papers which as usual I didn’t want to give away (we have all been there I’m sure) so I decided to use them to decorate my clock with.

I decided that the second hand really wasn’t the right colour (bright red lol) so I coloured it with copics (alcohol pens) and distress paint. The feathers are covered with wow embossing powder as is the string along I used.

New Clarity Stamp Challenge card

New Home card with clarity stamps

This month’s theme over on the Clarity Stamp Challenge blog is New Beginings so I made this New Home card.

New Home card with clarity stamps

I created a mask for the window both the shape of it and the inside cut out and a mask for the cat, all from post it notes. Using the Gelli plate I created a background, loading up the plate with a pale yellow first, then placing a dotty stencil on it and I put the mask of the window shape in place before pulling the first print. For the second print I loaded up with blue paint and stamped the swirls into it either side of where the window was going to be. Once I had my background I stamped out the cat, masked him off and stamped the window into the empty space, then masked off the window and stamped the trees. I realised then that the cat was levitating lol so I used some post it notes and made him a shelf to sit on. The window and frame are coloured with a mixture of Copic and Spectrum Noir pens and then I used clear embossing powder to “glaze” the windows. I cut the card down so it would fit the scalloped card with a matted border layer. I then stamped out the New Home tiles onto a spare piece of the Gelli plate background and stuck them on the card.

Roses Are Red card using mask from SplodgeAway

Well ok they are not roses, but they are red 🙂 When I started to colour this Bugaboo image , I had them in yellow, then I remembered that for the new challenge over at ABC challenges, they should be red, so I ended up colouring over the top. Thank goodness for Copic pens! I used a mask from SplodgeAway to make the background.

CBN July 1 sponsored by Lacy Sunshine stamps

The image I used is called Lizabeth- Wild Daisies Digi Set, the papers just cried out to be used with her. I coloured her with copic’s and cut her out with a Nellie Snellen die. The theme this month is Metal Magic, so I used some rainbow mirror card for my flourishes (well its kind of metal isnt it!)

O is for Open over at the ABC challenge blog

I cannot believe that it is June 1st already, where has the time gone?? This time last year our lives changed forever with the loss of my Dad who left us far too early at the age of only 62. We still miss him, obviously, but if there is one thing I learned it is that life is too short and you only get one chance at it! With that in mind I was determined to try my hardest to get onto one or more design teams. Here I am now, a year later, on 2 challenge blog design teams and on the DT for a super company called Splodge Away that makes some wonderful products that are great fun to work with.

Around the same time, we started on the long road of trying to get a diagnosis for our son who we think has Asbergers (still on that long road but getting closer to an answer there). Whilst we don’t have a diagnosis as yet, or even bothered what the “label” is, we are finding it a lot easier to deal with his “quirks” and his special way of doing things. The same son has taken up playing the tin whistle and is loving it. Our younger Son has started with a local theater group and has just performed his first play, outside of school, in which he was a natural.

All in all I think we have had a year that Dad and Grandad would have been pleased with, I do believe he has been watching and is very proud of what we have all achieved.

Now onto the challenge over at the ABC challenge blog, as the title says, “o is for open” that’s right Anything Goes for this one and our wonderful sponsors are  Marker Pop and Paper Shelter

I used one of my Gelli plate printed Backgrounds and an image from the Paper shelter called Spring Swing II
