Time Travel

Thought I'd have a play this morning and make a card for the new Vintage Journey Challenge.  It's a vintage, shabby Tim Holtz style challenge where the theme is Anything Tim - why don't you check out the link above and have a go....there are prizes too!!

Its a patchwork of card with lots of layers and I've used Aged Mahogany and Chipped Sapphire Distress Inks and Stains, plus Gold Dabber paint for backgrounds and stamping.  The stamps are all Tim Holtz from various sets and I've added gold through the Dot Fade stencil for added interest.  I've die cut the clock face and hands, painted gold and fastened with a brad.

I'm also going to enter this in the Country View Crafts challenge where the theme is PAPER.  Well all this is card (thick paper!) apart from the brad so hope it qualifies!

Well that's crafting done for the day - the sun is shining and the garden calls!!


  1. Hi Elaine! I love your patchwork card! It is a very best design and of course, you have added so many of the Tim elements that we have all come to know and love. :). Beautiful technique in creating those distressed, stenciled backgrounds. Thank you for joining us on A Vintage Journey ! Hugs, Candy

  2. Wow Elaine, I love this gorgeous card! I love the clock, I love the splats, I love the stenciling - all of it. And with my other hat on - thanks so much for joining our Anything Tim challenge at Our Creative Corner. Hugs, Anne xx

  3. A fabulous card Elaine, you have included lots of 'Timness' (just made that word up lol) and I love the gold contrasted with the other colours. Thanks for jumping aboard A Vintage Journey and sharing the ride. xx

  4. Love the patchwork background and the gilded clock looks fabulous! Thank you for joining us on A Vintage Journey.
