I'm back with another DT post for WOW! Embossing Powders and this month the theme is 'Time'.
This theme opens up a plethora of possibilities!! As soon as I started thinking about it, the song 'Time' by Hootie And The Blowfish got stuck in my head and has been there ever since...hence the title of this post :)
Despite the endless possibilities, I could not get the idea of a clock face to budge, so that's what I went with. And, to me, birthdays are the measure of our lives in time - so I combined this with the clock face idea and this is how it went...
To create my clock face, I started by making a mask from printer paper with a circle die then stamped the WOW! De-Vine stamp in Versamark and embossed it using Calypso embossing glitter. And, it would seem, Calypso is the colour of the month over at the WOW! shop - I love this colour, it covers really well with turquoise goodness and has a wonderful sparkle that my photography skills fail to convey in this image - sorry! You'll just have to try it for yourselves to see what I mean :)
I hand wrote the sentiment onto my 'hands' - which is apt really! It may not be obvious, but the sentiment is in violet to compliment the the turquoise.
A few pearls and some matting and there you have it - another card that took ages but looks like it took five minutes...which it might've done if only I'd had a plan when I started! ;)
Thanks for taking the time to read this post - get your creative caps on now and I'll see you talented lot in the gallery!!
