Time on my Hands - CoC #32

Hi Everyone, we have been having sunny spells today, which is really refreshing again.

Today I am showing a tag I have made to join the CoC challenge 32 at Linda's fab blog, Studio L3. This week it is an inking and masking technique which can be found on P.59 of Tim's book. I learnt one very important lesson from playing with making my own mask and that is to be aware of the ghost or shadow around the image if you haven't cut the mask close enough to the line, in fact I would say cut just inside the line. I will next time. The wings were stamped on acetate and glitter added to the back, I also used glitter pens on the clothes.

Other challenge blogs I used for inspiration were Simon Says Stamp and Show - A Tag and Just for Fun - Time Flies (I used the wings and clocks but in a different way and used a different sentiment - hope that's ok girls?)

DIs -  tea dye, crushed olive, weathered wood, walnut stain
Stamp - Prom Queen - Stampotique
Stamp for background - Studio 490 - Wendy Vecchi
Wings - stamp - Scrolls Work
sentiment - my own
embellishments - downloads

Enjoy the rest of Wednesday and thanks for taking a look at my tag.
