Happy New Year!!!!!


Happy New Year to you all. I hope you had a lovely New Years Eve, and that you have a Happy, Peaceful & Healthy New Year, with a little Prosperity thrown in for good measure. So here is my New Year card to everyone- I just wanted to play a little this morning. After all the Christmas cards and Wedding Stationery I am doing, it’s nice to just create something, rather than duplicating.
 The background was sponged with Scattered Straw,Mustard Seed,Wild Honey,Dried Marigold,Worn Lipstick,Victorian Velvet,Barn Door, Fired Brick & Spiced Marmalade Distress Inks. I stencilled through some sequin waste  with Spiced Marmalade, Antique Burgundy and Cracked Sapphire Distress Inks.The numbers are stencils I cut with the Silhouette, again sponged through with the Oranges & Reds. Overstamped with a variety of Tim stamps, putting the clock on each one. The phrase that is spread across the panels is all one stamp, I just masked off each section with low tack tape before inking the portion I wanted, removed the tape then stamped. The base card was covered with a sheet from Tims pad ‘Crowded Attic’, and the panels are mounted onto acetate so they float on the front.
 I really like the sentiment which fully reads:

‘Time is a companion that goes with us on the journey. It reminds us to cherish each moment because it will never come again. What we leave behind is not as important as how we have lived.’

  I’m looking forward to continuing my journey through creativity with you all for the next year.
