"Time" for a card

The latest challenge set by Neet on behalf of Artful Times is 'time'.

I folded a sheet of Kraft paper and stamped Tim's clock stamp several times in embossing ink, then added pan pastels to colour.  Die cut the clock in grungepaper and coloured it with vintage photo distress ink. The sentiment is also Tim's and finally I added some 'alpha parts' coloured with pewter fresco paint (paperartsy).

 In the middle of the clock I used a Wendy Vecchi flower from the 'accents for art' set

Brilliant Helen, love the subtleness of the background with the pan pastels - great colour choice.

Thanks for finding the 'time' to join us this week over at Artful Times.

This is a really 'timeless' piece Helen :D I do mean that actually even if I am chuckling at myself.

It's lovely, the colours, the sentiment, everything.

Can see I am going to have to get some of those Pan Pastels before long. Scrummy usage.
Love the idea of the flower in the centre of the clock - pure inspiration and I do like the lettering "tiME"
Thanks for joining us at Artful Times - love, Neet xx
