Monday Moments

Hello! I've another card to share today and it's going into the challenge at Time Out Challenges.

Well when I saw the theme it had me stumped for a while, but then I realised that clockwork toys would fit the bill and hey presto here's what I made:

I started by inking through a home made circle stencil with three colours of distress ink. I discovered that by pressing too heavily I was getting those unwanted lines, so in the bin and start again! So it seems you need to be very light handed and get a base colour down first, then you can go in again and again to add depth of colour. 

Once my circle of colour was achieved I then stamped the cute rabbit on top and added in a heart and squiggle  too. Finally I stamped the sentiment and matted it onto a white card base.

Stamps: Tracey Hey, Wind Me Up
Ink: Versafine Clair, nocturne; Ranger distress, twisted citron, mermaid lagoon, lucky clover

Huge thanks for dropping by today, it's been fabulous to share some time with you.

Stay safe and keep crafting!

I think this sponging looks great and adore the mix of the greens. Do like that added squiggle and what the perfect sentiment. I always love to see what you come up with and am never disappointed!
