Time after Time

The City Crafter Challenge this week is Time after Time.  I used up a lovely piece of vellum scrap which already had the clock (Hero Arts)  and flowers (Stampendous)  stamped on it.

The rest was fairly simple:
  1. Cut Prima paper to fit background. Distress edges with distressing tool and sponge with brown dye ink. 
  2. Stamp bees (Impression Obsession) onto ivory cardstock using black ink. Cut out. 
  3. Highlight parts of the images using white gel pen. 
  4. Accent flowers with gems. 
  5. Add lace trim to edges. 
  6.  I then used the same sentiment from yesterday's post (Verses Rubber Stamps - Flowers that Bloom) and stamped and embossed using brown embossing powder. 

Hope your week is going well...
