Hello everyone! The new challenge at Anything But a Card is A Stitch in Time! You can use anything related to time- clock, watch, stopwatch, hour glass, clock parts, etc AND/OR stitching- real or faux!
I made an 8.5x11 wall hanging. The base is a sturdy piece of cardboard, covered with scrapbook paper...can't remember who by now. Then I used a portion of a 12x12 canvas paper sheet I got at Michaels the other week- it has the clocks printed on it. I went over it with Distress Inks and Stains in Broken China, Peeled Paint, and Brushed Cordorouy. I added some Tumbled Glass too. I used copics for some of the framing colors. I spritzed it with glimmer mist and water to mute it down and age it a bit. I printed out an image of a song, and aged the paper with more Distress Inks and crumpled up- attached to the canvas with brads and safety pins. I added some pearls and Wild Orchid Flowers... and the ivory trim I found at a thrift store here. I hot glued the trim on- and only burned my finer once. Yay!
I think it came out pretty- and it is on my wall right now above my crafting space for inspiration.
We would love to have you join us over at Anything But a Card! See you there!
