Time to Retire

Hello there,

I'm back today with our next challenge over at Cardz 4 Guyz - my how time is whizzing by! This week it's my turn to choose the theme and I think there was a little wishful thinking going on when I chose it. For the next seven days we would love to see your projects showcasing the theme


Here's what I made for my DT inspiration using some of my brand new Creative Expressions stamps ...

I absolutely love this set of stamps and couldn't wait to get all inky. It's a hand made background using Peacock Feathers and Tea Dye distress inks, then I stamped over the top with the script stamp using Sepia ink. Next I passed it through my script embossing folder and inked around the edges for a little extra definition.

The topper is the main feature of the stamp set and is also stamped with sepia ink and I added a little colour using my coloured pencils. The sentiment was created on my pc and printed on a spare piece of inky background.

Hope you can join us this week - I look forward to seeing your creations.
Hugz, Jan xx
