Rise and Shine as they say. Whatever you're up to today, I hope you'll have a really positive day... I'm sending lots of Marvellous Monday vibes your way. For a little arty inspiration I'm here with my new creation for Simon Says Stamp & Show! where it's a Red Letter Day theme. That can have many meanings these days but I plumped for Birthdays and a metal twist on "The Male Card." I also wanted to make something to celebrate Mr. Tim's special day and join in the tributes over at Grungy Monday. There's some great cards and I'm sure I've been inspired by this fabulous one by Tracy.
Alcohol Inks. Then I cut four Weathered Clocks from corrugated cardboard which is great stuff. It's cheap, chunky and looks like old wood when coloured and swiped with Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink. I then glued them to the metal with Matt Medium tucking a little Ruler Ribbon behind the front one for a splash of those important red numbers!.
Idea-ology! I used a Timepiece, Regal Wings and Spinners topped off with a rather jaunty crown! Again, all tinted with Alcohol Inks.
Memory Frame from it. Inside, I placed my favourite dapper Chap. He is stamped on painted Grungeboard , cut out and mounted on a 'flying' dictionary corner! I thought Flying High was a great phrase so I cut Chip Block letters, stuck them to card and covered them with Ranger Metal Foil. I pounded everything with more Alcohol inks, used a paper stump to define the letters and then finally sanded them to make them stand out.
Swivel Clasp and Philosophy Tag for the journey part.
