This fortnight, Artful Times challenge has chosen ‘time’ as a subject for their challenge. Here’s my ATC:
I’ve been reading a number of books, lately, on themes such as happiness, creativity, positive thinking and self development. In ‘100 % positivo’ by Leo Bormans, the author suggests that ‘sitting’ and ‘watching’ are verbs that depict a kind of philosophical attitude and he advises to take the time to both sit and to watch in an active way (of course we’re not talking about being a couch potato and watching television!). Anyway, that’s what inspired me in making this atc, featuring one of my new Artistic Stampers stamps (for I’ve recently won their candy and I couldn’t resist purchasing some extra rubber stamps). The image of the girl was provided by one of the Yahoo-groups I’m a member of.
- Clock: Artistic Stamper
- Roman numbers background: Fusion Art Stamps
- Steampunk elements: Oxford Impressions
Recently, I participated in a background ISDI in one of the yahoo-groups I belong too. Everyone had to create 4 backgrounds that were swapped out to 4 other participants. So everyone received 4 different backgrounds which they had to turn into a finished 4×6 card using rubberstamps.
This was one of the backgrounds I received. It was created by Gerda.
And this is how I finished the card:
I’d like to enter this card into the following challenges:
- Bubble Girl: Stampcamp
- Scratches, row of numbers, circles, sentiment: Stampers anonymous
- Floor numbers: Art Journey
- Playing card elements: Cherry Pie
Some time ago, I made this gothic arch ATC tryptich for a personal swap:
I used several techniques: stamping with water, antique wallpaper technique featured in the Technique Junkie’s June/July 2010 newsletter, collage, …
I’d like to enter this ATC triptych to the following challenges:
I often find inspiration in song lyrics for my creations, and this particular one was inspired by ‘Endless skies’, a song by VNV Nation. I didn’t find an official video for this song, so I included the following one featuring the lyrics:
I’m finally catching up with my gothic arches for Inkurable Stampers! Here’s my entry for the theme “numbers“.
As I created this colourful background and coloured the lovely umbrella girl with Distress inks, this will also be my entry “Simon Says stamp and show your Distress inks“. I just love the way Distress inks react to water!
