Hi Everyone, it's Danie here today! Have you seen the new Altered Pages Art Stamps in Store at Altered Pages? I just love the set Time on Your Side which is a set of four clock/watch images.
|Time by Your Side Stamps by Altered Pages|
A few weeks back I decided that my word for 2014 would be TIME, as time is precious, Time Flies, it could be time to celebrate, time to reflect, time to give thanks, or perhaps to make time and take time to spend with family or enjoy the little things. But most important for me in 2014 I need to make the most of my time following the world-wind year that 2013 has been.
Anyhow today I am using the bottom two images to create Time Themed Cards which are perfect to make when time is short!
Start by simply coloring in your backgrounds, if you do so on larger sheets of paper or cardstock you can cut down to card size panels and make a quantity of greetings in very little time.
For my backgrounds I have simply scribbled and splotched across some white cardstock using three colors of Distress Stain on each one (I love this as its so quick and easy to do). You can however use and sponge inks, color and scribble with your Gelatos, spray with your Dylusions Mists etc. I have then randomly stamped my images across the background.
Some I used just one of the images, others I used both. Some I simply stamped in black ink, others I used coordinating colors to my background colors and black together.
Then I simply layered onto a card base, black, white or a coordinating colors really change the effects/look but all will make the colors pop. Then its simply a matter of finding a time related sentiment and believe me there is heaps to choose from.
A simple one of Time to Celebrate would make a perfect sentiment for Birthday or New Years Greetings, others could be Time to Dream, Time to Shine, Time to Fly.
Any quote that mentions moments of time is also perfect to use with these backgrounds.
Time I was off! I have to pack as its holiday time and by the time you will be reading this post hubby and I will be at the beach and our week away will be almost over.
Thanks for stopping by and I wish each and everyone of you a Very Merry Christmas and Happy & Safe New Year, see you next time!
