Time Flies

This week's TIO challenge is Time Flies. It certainly does, I can't believe we are nearly in August, where has the last year gone!!!!

Both Freya and I have entered a tag again this week, but we did them separately so they are very different this week.

Freya stamped her butterflies (from inkadinkadoo) on vellum and painted them with gold glimmer mist to make them curl. Her background was sponged with chalk inks and the clock was taken from the internet and painted with pink glimmer mist. The little butterflies were stamped with pink brilliance ink.

I took a different clock face from the internet and liked the idea of a dandelion clock and the flying seeds. My background was sponged with the brown set of colourbox pigment inks and the dandelion (from Autumn Leaves, it was the Stampology Fine & Dandy set, one of my favourites at the moment) was stamped in black and clear embossed. I did the same for a second image on scrap paper and then just cut the seeds off. The clock face had brown ink applied and I hand drew the hands in.

Thank you so much for looking and the wonderful comments you leave us. I hope you all have a lovely weekend, whatever the weather!

These are both wonderful creations, Lisa. I love the butterflies on the top tag & everything about the lower one!!

Thank you for stopping by my blog. I am pleased you found something inspirational from it. I have not created a lot lately as I changed jobs last year & I had to study hard as I was fortune to be taken on even thought I couldn't do the job.I had 3 months to prove myself :) That done I worked even harder & now a year on I can come back to my craft table. I feel refreshed from being away. I believe the break was needed.
I look forward to popping by & seeing what else you make :))
