Memories are our own Time Machine............
I have made this card for a friends birthday next month - had a good play with another of Sheena Douglass' Time Traveller stamp collection. Forgot to take photo's for this one so I'll explain how I got there.
Started off with a piece of watercolour paper and used Aqua Tints to lay down the background colour. Stamped the Time Machine but wasn't happy with how much ink I got down on to the paper (it's harder to lay down the ink from the stamp on to watercolour paper, often because of texture and fibres in the paper). So I knew I had to enhance the stamped image myself (which is great fun). I have used a combination of Inktense watercolour pencils and Spectrum illustrator markers on the Time Machine. I couldn't make my mind up if I wanted it travelling over water or clouds so I went for a water look but to me it could still be clouds!!!!?
Finished with a nice big stencil - a big whirl as it travels in time!
Mat and layered.
I think he'll like that!
Thanks for stopping by,
