Time in Pink

This card is serving a number of purposes! It's the sketch design Dini has up on her blog this week (thanks for letting me play along too!) and also fits the Time-themed lottery card for this month on StampersCorner. PLUS, this card features a background from the current TechniqueJunkies newsletter called Brayered Spots. Very fun technique with surprise results every time!

Card measures 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"

There is no gray in the pink of the small t irl - I think that's a reflection from the scanner on the 3D glue (see below). All stamps except the flourishes are by Second Star on the Right (Time Travel sheet) which I think is out of business (sadly ;o( The flourishes are by Autumn Leaves, Rhonna Farrer Big Swirls set.

Ink colors used are Distress Tattered Rose, Palette Burnt Umber, and VersaMagic Sahara Sand.

The center panel was edged from the pad with Burnt Umber and then stippled in with a brush. The small t was colored in with the Rose ink and then both the Ts were covered with Diamond Glaze dimensional glue. I use a superfine needlepoint bottle from Rockler to apply in tight spaces.

The main panel is pop-dotted and the embellishment in front of "Time" is a decorative metal brad with an antique copper finish.

Thanks for looking!

Thank you ever so much for giving instructions. I love to make cards or altered books and need all the help I can get.
I am also very thankful that you have quoted Scripture. My goal is to try to get my great photos and add some verses on them. God is great and I want to praise him in anything I do.
