its another bright one!

Goodly morning to you lovelies! How are you today? I hope you are well. We're all good - looking forward to the weekend - I'm taking my lovely mum to Port Sunlight and hoping to see a few blog buddies whilst I'm there. I won't have much to spend - they really shouldn't put these things at the end of the month lol! But I will enjoy it anyway!!!!

I've got another bright one to share with you today. I've made this one with the vintage journey challenge in mind - there's not much vintage about it - but there's lots of lovely Tim Holtz goodies been used in its making.


The background was created on the gelli plate - at the same time as the one from yesterday - I added some stamping with a TH stamp to the background and also added some black embossing paste through a TH bubble mask. When dry I rubbed over with mowed Lawn DI through the bubble mask.


Next came diecutting - I cut three of the 6 petalled flower on the Tattered florals die and assembled them to make a flower - Hels Style. Then I cut the clock and coloured it with spiced marmalade and scattered straw.  Finally I used a memory box die to cut the foliage in black.


The final thing was to stamp the main sentiment in versamark and heat set with olive wow powders. I then diecut the sentiment and rubed over with spiced marmalade DI.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Thanks for dropping by today and for any comments you may leave. Hope to see you again soon and if you're at Port Sunlight I might see you there!!!!

Big Hugs rachel xx

  1. Lovely warm and welcoming colours Rachel. Enjoy Port Sunlight, I am told it's a good show, bit off the beaten track for me, but should I ever get that far afield I would probably be heading to Anfield.

  9. Rachel....I think your card is awesome! Things don't always have to be brown to be "Tim" and this card has proven that! I love the bright, vivid splashes of color! And I think it really does have a vintage quality to it...be it from the weathered clock die cut, the subtle stenciling in the background (reminds me of old wallpaper) or the "remember the now" sentiment. I love the bubble wrap stamping and the very pretty black die cut rose and vines you've added, too. Thanks for sharing your card with us at A Vintage Journey! <3 Candy
