Time for Crafts

Had a bit of time this weekend to create a few cards. This one uses a wonderful vintage image from the Library of Congress (you can find it here-
printed the pocket watch on vellum, colored from the back, added some gel pen highlights, and then cut a circle from white cardstock to place behind the clock face. Layered the finished image onto some items from my stash to create a masculine shabby chic card (is there such a thing?!) Oh, and printed the sentiments for the inside and front of the card on my computer and printer.

Mother's Day is coming up fast, so decided to make a card for a sweet friend. Used an adorable digi image from Little Scraps of Heaven. Printed the sentiment on vellum, and made the MOM flag with scrapbook alphie stickers. So cute! Entering the card into several challenges including the current Sketch Saturday challenge (layout), Simon Says Wednesday Challenge (animal) and Art Impressions (winged things- a bunch of Bees!)

My final card for the SumMoreFun Mood Board challenge was made with a pair of stamps from an old Hero Arts set. I don't have a clue who makes the sentiment stamps (I removed them from the wood mounts years ago.) Added a dainty doily to create a card that mimics the delicate and feminine blooms on the Mood Board.
