Another week another challenge and this week at Sweet Pea Stampers the theme is Forever in Time. I love this stamp - "The Dragon". I stamped her with Vintage Photo Distress and lightly tinted the image using a water brush and highlighted the centre of the flowers with Copper Brads. The dragonflies have a coating of distressed stickles, which is hard to see here.
I then cut her out with a scalloped die cut and matted behind a piece of gold card using the same die for a subtle highlight. The background is an embossing folder of watch cogs using coredinations card and then sanded to bring out the detail.
Some Game Spinners by Tim Holtz, a couple of brown flowers in the corner and a tassle I bought from Joanna Sheen and this is the simple but timely and distressed end result.
