A Sketch in Time...

I can't believe another month has flown past! The Cards Galore Challenge for June is a Sketch Challenge and this is the sketch to work from

A star on a sketch indicates an embellishment or a sentiment. I decided to try something completely different for me (again!) so I used "Doo Lally Pip", a fabulous stamp set from a collection by Lindsay Mason. The backing papers were picked from a steam punk selection from Tiddlyinks and from patterns available in the Silhouette online store. I inked the edges using weathered wood distress ink. I coloured the image using the C range of Copic colours and I "popped" the image using W1. The black frame was cut on the Cameo, covered in Perfect Medium, and embossed twice with clear embossing powder. The watch was stamped inked and also embossed twice. The wire was curled around a paintbrush.
I love the stamp and think in contrast my next project with it will be using lots of colour!
This month's challenge is sponsored by Designs by Ryn and the prize is two of their gorgeous stamps.

I would like to enter this for the Nutcrafters Challenge "Monochrome"   Ali Craft's Open Challenge and  Happy Campers Craft Collective Challenge "Use Metal"  (I made the spring out of wire)
thank-you and Happy Crafting!!
