Keeping Time

Scrapper’s Delights have a progressive challenge running on their Facebook and this month have a great steampunk/vintage image to work with.


Materials used:
Scrapper’s Delights – Lady Constance
DDDoodles – A Matter of Time Patterned Papers
DDDoodles – As Time Goes By
X-Press It card
printer card and paper
vintage photo distress ink and applicator
A5 white card blank
Copic pens

Lady Constance is printed out on X-Press It card and coloured with Copics. The coloured image is than fussy cut.

Three of the papers are printed out on paper. The clock face paper is used to cover the front of the card blank leaving a white border. Two of the Matter of Time papers are cut to make a layered matt for the image. All the papers have been edged with vintage photo distress ink.

The time quote is printed on printer paper, trimmed to size and coloured with the vintage photo ink.

The coloured image is attached to the card using gel glue to give some dimension to the card.

The progressive challenge at Scrapper’s Delights is a great one to have a go at. The images are wonderful to work with. So why not have a look at the Facebook Page for all the details and join in the fun.

About Pippa

I started crafting at an early age though not always successfully, my pillowcase tennis dress has, thankfully, disappeared into history. Funnily sewing is not something I enjoy! My favourite crafty activity has to be card making, especially stamping which I have been doing for over 20 years and am still a beginner, there is always something new to learn. I also enjoy knitting and crochet. I am not an artist, cannot even draw a straight line with a ruler, but I love colouring in, which is why stamping appeals so much. I am married, have recently retired from being a part time HLTA at a local village primary school, have two grown up daughters, both married and a mad cat called Finnegan. That, in a nutshell, is me.
