Well what a week it's been...a day off work on Monday to go up to Stitches ...and as you saw from my photos we had a great day. As I am the only paid worker, supported by two office volunteers at the charity I work for, a Volunteer Centre, where we help people find volunteer work... and no one was in on Monday, Tuesday was a bit of a catch-up. I spent most of Wednesday preparing for tonight's workshop...so not much crafting this week!
Whatever happens I'm always determined to enter Hels Sheridan's Sunday Stampers challenge and this week the theme is MEN...well I have been playing with my Alice in Wonderland stamps recently, trying to decide what to put on my next clock and this is the result of a little 'play' around the Mad Hatter theme...
So I ended up with a grunge guy card! I started off with some kraft card, which I embossed with a clock mask and then inked over the card with Vintage Photo and a touch of Fired Brick. The Mad Hatter Stamp and the quote are both by Indigo Blu; the clock by Teresa Collins and the tea cups are Papermania.
I stamped them all on kraft card in black archival, which I heat embossed and then coloured with Vintage Photo. Before adding the embossed card to the front of the card, I photocopied a page from my childhood copy of Alice and inked it before sticking it to the card base. I turned back the corner of the top layer and added the clock, secured with a brad and once I had glued it, I used a distress tool around the edges of the card.
Thanks for stopping by and have a happy crafty day!
