sands of time

Hi..

I made a card last night to enter CAS-ual Fridays Stamps 'Blue' challenge. I have been waiting to use this stamp since the time I received it but couldn't think of a way as to how I'm going to.

Finally, this is what I managed to come up with. Sorry for bad pictures! No matter how hard I tried I couldn't take better pictures. Guess I needed more natural light but I didn't have time to wait!

I used 'Sands of time' stamp set. I used the adorable hour glass from the set.



Now you'll see that I have played around with the stamp a bit. The image on the center of the card is the original one from the set. The other two were altered a bit.



I wanted to 'show' the passing of time, that was why I came up with this. I altered the sizes of the hearts in the first and last image also the quantity of 'sand' in the lower half..


Added glossy accents for interest.

Thanks for visiting today! Have a great day! :)

ETA- Also entering Addicted to stamps and more challenge # 82 which is 'Make your mark' (I've used water color pencils and fine tip pens to color my images)

Also to CASology- The cue word is 'BOLD' (I think the hearts in the hour glass are bold, aren't they? :))
