Flourishes Father Time

Since we're only a few days into the New Year, I thought I would play along with Flourishes Father Time challenge. There was a lot of brain storming that went into making this card.  As I look at my enormous stamp collection, I realized the New Year's type stamps were non existent. In addition to that...I only had a few Flourishes stamp sets. Well this is what I came up with.

The DP is from a 7 Gypsies paper pad, the pocket watch is K & Co, the charm is from a Karen Foster set, pearls are from Michaels and Spellbinders provided the Fancy Tag behind the sentiment.The sentiment is from the "Enjoy the Ride" set.  In order to make the label tall enough to accommodate the sentiment, the die was used to partially cut the top half of the Fancy Tag. Then the die was moved down to cut the bottom half.  A modified 'outside the box' technique.

To make the wings I started with a scalloped circle, then used a 1 1/2" paper punch to cut a half moon shape from the larger scalloped circle. A Sizzix embossing folder was used to add detail to the wings. Metallic glitter was applied to the edges.

The metallic glitter on the hour glass was applied using super glue. YEAH my fingers didn't stick to the hour glass so my fingers are free to make more cards. Love it when you don't get stuck to super glue!

Back to creating cards in my Butterfly Garden.
