Clocks

Hi everyone,

My! How time flies - it really does, doesn't it?! I say this as yet another day off work nears its end and I still haven't done half the things I meant to do. But I've had fun, and I did finish my tag :o)
Here it is
My poorly PC is all better now, so I could have downloaded a vintage image to work with, but being without PC for a couple of weeks got me thinking about how much I rely on it, so I thought I would see what I could do without it again this week (although of course I still need the PC for bloggin)
This tag was all done with mists and Distress Inks using home-made masks, then I used some lovely rubber stamps (from Hampton Art I think) featuring hot air balloons. I stamped them twice - once onto the background, then again onto white card so I could cut out the main parts and stick them over the stamped image for a better contrast against the background. Finally, I cut some gulls from the scrap card and stamped the word with some little 99p alpha stamps I've had for years.
My fingers are a gorgeous shade of blue to match!
Ok, let's have a look at what everyone else has been up to ...

Cheerio for now

  2. Beautiful job Annie - without PC suits you! I love the clock face balloon idea which fits so perfectly with your quote - now I know why the little boy threw the clock out of the window!

  12. I love your stamped images, they work so well on the white (clever idea to do that!). The background is gorgous too - I love the effect you've achieved. Brilliant!
