' ' ' 'Crafty Endeavours: Turn back time

Tuesday 5 February 2019

Turn back time

Yes, it's time, time for my second inspiration make for the Country View Challenge and the theme of today's card. I had planned something totally different starting with a black base but halfway through I just didn't know how to make it look good and abandoned the idea.
Instead I reverted to a CAS design which is a lot easier when working with the colour constraints.

I used the Somewhere in Time stamp set by Visible image with Black Versafine and orange dye ink.
The splat stamp, cogs stamp or number stamps are partially stamped (no masking involved), I just inked the bits I wanted, no need for precision here.

I created the sentiment by inking only "turn back" from one of the set's sentiments above the "Time" image. I'm not sure why but the song Turn back time imposed itself to me and I thought maybe if one managed to turn back time all clocks would explose!!!

Thanks for coming by,
I am entering the Craft Stamper challenge.
