Time Flies - nearly the weekend!!

I'm still working on a couple of birthday cards for early next week so I can't post them yet.  Instead I have this to show - I seem to be strongly addicted to these particular chip shapes at the moment.

I coloured this one with scattered straw and brushed corduroy DI's , put some Terra in the middle and stamped into it and when it was dry, aded some gold and mother of pearl viva paints. 

I stamped some Paperartsy images round the edges and added the "time flies" on a piece of pearl TSS metal which I stuck to a small piece of grungepaper and bent the wings (they've got a bit flattened by the scanner).  I sprayed a perfect pearl/DI reinker  mix over it before sticking it to the chip. I had a packet of small embellies that just matched the stamps and pushed one into the top right corner. I have no idea where I got them, but they have very sharp metal tips to them - ouch! Now I know why I've not used them before.

Glad it's Friday tomorrow - hope to spend the weekend playing - sorry, Making Art!!
