Tick Tock.. Tick.. T..ock

Time for a new challenge over at Passion for ProMarkers today! :)

It seems like an age since I caught up with everyone. These summer months take more out of my than I though. I'm never really in the house long enough, so apologies to all of you who usually receive comments from me on your blog - I just haven't been around!!

Anywho, this week the challenge set by Julie is TIME!

We wanna see you use a clock, or a 'time' image, or a sentiment which includes time. Any which way you can think of to incorporate the theme, we wanna see it! :)

I was very sneaky with my creation this week. I used a little clock image from 7Gypsies and added it to the two corners of my image panel! I didn't want it to be too obvious.

Neither me nor my friends can believe that our friends little girl in one already, so I thought the little subtle clock would be the perfect touch for her 1st birthday card. 

I used Princess No.3 from The Greeting Farm and tried out the whole 'No Lines' technique. To be fair, it wasn't as scary as I thought it'd be - choosing a more simplistic image with large areas to colour helps. :) The hardest part was drawing in the details on the face! LOL! I'd recommend doing that before you even start your colouring, else you're all on edge about it!

I've added a die cut 1 and a postage stamp from Whimsy Stamps underneath. I added Isabelles name to the top left using Lawn Fawn alpha stamps and an Xcut die. Some Doodlebug brads, Stickles, Liquid Pearls and a couple of buttons finishes off the embellishment.

Thanks for stopping by. xo
