Today we have a new challenge for you at Cardz 4 Guyz, and this time the theme is "Time flies".
I had to think long and hard for this challenge - I have plenty of time-themed stamps and stash, but I wanted to somehow work the "flies" part of it in too. I didn't have any wing stamps that would fit any of my watch ones, so I decided to die cut a butterfly and use that. I hope you think that, by using a newsprint-effect card and not embossing the butterfly, I've kept it masculine enough for the card.
Once I'd decided that, I had a lovely time making this, delving into my snippets and stash, stamping, inking, scrunching and distressing to my heart's content. I used an old watch stamp and the Time background stamp I've used many times before - I think it originally came from Raindrops on Roses. The "Tempus Fugit" stamp was a magazine cover mount and as it translates to "Time flies" I absolutely HAD to use it.
The vintage aeroplane image is a repro cigarette card from Foil Play, the button, brad, wooden tag, washi tape and twine are from the dovecraft Curiosity Corner range, the corrugated card is from the packaging of a bottle of olive oil, the self adhesive cork strip was a pound shop find and all the papers are from my snippets box.
It's ages since I've made a collage like this and I'd forgotten just how much fun it is!
