Dare to be different.

Our last challenge of the year over at Fashionable Stamping Challenges and we would like you to
'Surprise Us'.  So you will guess from this theme you will have free choice  in what you make.


I chose to make a card using a Creative Expressions stamp set Vintage Vixens.
The image was water coloured and the shading, Vintage Photo distress ink.
I used some new Metalic distress stains on the die cut clock, it looks darker in real life and not so shiny.
A few trimmings from my box to finish and its ready to be posted.
One of the paper layers was dry embossed with cogs and clocks.

Remember to include some stamping and please pop over to see what my design team sisters have been making.

Thank you for visiting me, I always appreciate your comments.
