Hello my crafting friends, well its my beautiful daughters 35th birthday today, my where does the time go so here is the card I made for her, I loved doing all the Time Traveller creations with Sheena's Time Traveller Collection so decided to make one of these for her birthday card.

When I made my canvas for the Sheena Douglass Time Traveller shows on Hochanda I scanned in the background of my canvas and it is this background that I have used  as the base for this card. I had some cogs from Sheena Perfect Partners Time Traveller Geared Up already die cut from the rust technique card I made ( I will do a tutorial on this at a later date) so I placed these on the left hand side of the card in the two corners. 

I die cut more cogs out of Gold Miri card and also the watch and put these to one side. I die cut the big clock from Sheena Perfect Partners Time Traveller Make Time out of Black card then rubbed Pebeo Gilding Wax King Gold over the numerals and Vintage Gold round the rest of the clock, I wanted this in the top right corner of the card so I attached the gold cogs so they would be in the center of the clock then attached the clock over the top.

I die cut two of the propellers from Sheena Perfect Partners Time Traveller Voyage of Discovery out of White Card and stamped them with the matching stamp using Versamark then heat embossed with Black Embossing Powder. I then painted them with Aquatints Bright & Beautiful, using the Red & Green to make the rusty Brown colour and then painting the Teal over the top and finally rubbing some Vintage Gold Gilding Wax over the top. I put these together to form a flower and added this in the bottom right corner of the card and attached the chain from the Sheena Perfect Partners Time Traveller Timepieces watch so it came from under the flower.

I stamped the Woman from Sheena Perfect Partners Time Traveller Steampunk Woman onto White card and painted her with Aquablend Pencils, cut her out and attached her with Collall 3D Gel Glue so she was raised up slightly on the card as seen.

To finish the card I matted and layered up onto Gold Miri card and Black card.
This card is very similar to one I made for the shows only I omitted the sand gel but added more cogs. I only hope she like it lol!

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to comment and I will reply on here. 

Thank you for looking, Jacquie xxx

Fly High

Hello my crafting friends, I am back with a card I made for Sara at Crafters Companion for some shows she was doing in the USA, this was quite a few months back and I don't think I have posted it before so here we go...

I first took a piece of card roughly to the size of 7x7" and inked it up with Tim Holtz Distress Inks Tumbled Glass and Squeezed Lemonade making sure I blended well where the two colours meet.

I lay over the top Sheena Douglass Decorative Stencil Shady Meadow and inked through the bottom half using Tim Holtz Distress Ink Brushed Corduroy and the top half with Forest Moss, omitting the tree leaves in the top right corner where possible, I then went over the top again lightly with the Brushed Corduroy. I removed this stencil and then took another stencil, this time the Floral Canopy and used just the Wisteria part of the stencil inking it all along the top with Tim Holtz D.I. Shaded Lilac then going over that again with Seedless Preserve to add depth. I then went round the edge of the card again with Brushed Corduroy D.I. to draw the eye to the center.

For the Butterfly and Dragon fly, even though Sheena has done both of these as a stamp and die the ones I have used were just the smaller stamp set that came with Crafters Companion Inspiration Magazine, I think it may have been No 9. I stamped both of these onto some Sheena White Stamping Card, coloured them in with Spectrum Noir Pens and cut them both out. 
I took a little baby peg and attached this to the Butterfly as its body for interest and painted over both the Butterfly and Dragonfly with a Clear Sparkle Pen, unfortunately it does not show up in these photographs. Once dry I attached them to the card as seen. To finish I stamped the sentiment just under the Dragonfly.

I matted and layered it up on Black card then a White base card to complete the finished card.

Thank you for looking, Jacquie xxx
