Incredible Time and Inspiring Katya by Penny

Good morning peeps, I hope you are all happy and well.  For my last DT post of the month I have a couple of cards to share with you.  

Incredible Time.

For this card I have used stamps from the Timeless set, Versamark ink, gold EP, Distress inks and some Glossy Accents.  

On a piece of smooth white card I blended three colours of Distress inks and dried the card.  I then stamped the large collage image using Versamark ink then embossed it in gold.  I used a gold pen to edge the panel then added some Glossy Accents to a few of the clock faces and set the panel aside to dry naturally.  

I took a piece of blue paper and stamped the collage image in a pale DI randomly.  I then stamped some of the lovely worker stamps randomly around the edges of a white base card, using the same colours as I used for the background panel.  I attached the stamped blue paper to the card then added the focal panel when it was dry. 

I had already stamped and embossed the single clockface image onto white card, cut it out and added Glossy Accents as before.  As a final touch I attached the clockface in 3D onto the card.

Inspiring Katya.

This card is really quick and easy, the sentiment can be changed to suit any occasion.  I have used stamps from the Katya and Words of Inspiration sets; grey Versafine ink, Distress Inks, CB Strip Stencils - circles, alcohol pens, a gold pen and some gems from my stash.  

On a piece of smooth white paper ( actually the back of an old calendar) I stamped Katya in grey Versafine.  I coloured her in with alcohol markers and added gold pen to enrich the look of her headdress.  I masked off the image and used DI through a stencil for the background, then removed the mask. 

I had left the perforated edge of the calendar on the artwork for a bit of interest and texture.  I stamped a couple of words onto spare pieces of smooth white paper and used DI and the circle stencil as a background for the sentiment panels.  I then matted all the panels onto a contrasting colour of card and attached them to a white basecard.  To complete the design I added a few gems to the headdress.  

I shall be back next month with some more samples to share with you, so until then please stay safe, keep well and respect each other,

  1. Beautiful cards, love them all

  2. I adore the gold embossed clocks and the words and spatters stamped in blue and green on the base card then the blue mat in between with the image stamped randomly brings it all together, and Katya looks suitably regal and beautiful in wonderful colours with the touches of gold, and love the circles stencilled in the background. Two gorgeous cards Penny. x

  3. Two super cards and I especially like the gold embossed clocks, they really stand out x

  4. OH! both are such gorgeous cards. Love the clocks and their colours and Katya with her circles and gold. WOW!
