Week 3 at Artful times

Here we are with our 3rd challenge at Artful Times and boy did you do us proud with your green creations  :)
Neet thought she had more TIME to get her post  for this week done, but has pulled it all together at the last minute

I'm making time for tea with this easel card and I've used Tim's clock cut out of card covered with crafty notions gilding flakes, then stuck onto another piece of card covered with a patterned paper aged with distress inks , to mount the clock I stamped some roses and then cut following the out line and slipped the clock in place all finished off with a spellbinder teapot  and rose bow
oh did I say the clock face from a Kanban set is a perfect match for the clock :)
Hope you will find TIME for this challenge and Join us at Artful Times were you will find Sam and Neets inspiration

Artful Times and mainly green

What an amazing first challenge we have had at Artful Times with 38 enties and 68 wonderful followers :)
Sam's choice this fortnight and she would like to see a mainly GREEN background so off I went and had a messy play time with some inks made the similar way as Netty's on  Happy Daze but no matter how I tried ! it would photograph well, but has happens when you have a play you then can't decide what to do with it so it sits and waits inspiration .
Ok let's try again. Honest there is no white on the background :( I stamped an embossed in clear on a light green wrinkle free background then inked over with the darker green and splashed with water and iron the clear embossing powder to melt it away ready for ...... opps inspiration walked out the door so they also sit wating to be finished off
I really don't think my camera likes green as this is an alcohol ink back ground on glossy card stamped with a Crafty Individual stamp in black Archival and again onto some inked paper and cut out the butterfly and flower so it's a simple atc from me this week
You will find lots more inspiration from Sam and Neet at Artful Times and hope you will all join us again :)
