Clocks and travel (or time travel)


Arty Girlz has a travel theme with some great looking stamps as a prize. Here's my Paris card, which features an alcohol ink background with stamping on the right, a collage and the Eiffel Tower stamped onto Stampbord which was painted with gold. I nearly had a disaster because as I wrestled with the lid of a gold pen, the whole thing came apart and ink poured all over my Stampbord pieces. Fortunately I was able to scrape it off using the Stampbord tools.

The DCM extra is clocks. Very timely (ha ha) for me to get out the stamps I won from Artistic Stamper. I covered a blank with paper from My Mind's Eye, stamped assorted clocks and the title and edged it with ribbon. I included a "real" watch face and a key from Maya Road.

Ooohhh, more challenges! I'm beginning to get hooked on them. They're everywhere! Love the Paris card! I'm off there in the summer so I'm now getting in the mood! I'm glad someone else has disasters! Mine are usually with sticky dots!
