Time Flies!

Hi there everyone,

I'm back with news of the next challenge over at CARDZ 4 GUYZ and this week Joan chose the theme


Here's what I made for my DT inspiration using one of my embossing folders ...

I began with a piece of plain white cardstock, then added some distress ink in Faded Jeans and Tea Dye using my inkdusters. Next I passed it through an embossing folder to create the clock background. I brushed gently over the top with some Gathered Twigs distress ink, just to highlight the embossing a little, then cut the whole piece into four smaller pieces

The pieces are layered on kraft card and then a background. The little topper is made using an old set of stamps - I cut out the 'Time Flies' part and then stamped and cut out the wings, adding them to the topper before layering it on to some more kraft card. It also has a little metal timepiece embellishment to finish off.

I hope you will join us over at the challenge.
Hugz, Jan xx


  1. Oh this is simply lovely! Such a fab technique, and lightly going over the embossed area again really does make it stand out in a subtle way. Love it! x

  2. Mmm have I seen that EF somewhere before? No seriously a fab card Jan! :)

  3. Lovely card, you've made the embossing look absolutely fab!

  4. Love the winged sentiment and the two color sponging on your wonderful embissed background! Julia xx

  5. Love your winged sentiment and the embossing
