Time To Celebrate

Artful Times Blog has a current challenge called 'Time'.  I missed their last challenge but have managed to post this in time (excuse the pun!).

The 'Time to Celebrate' and the watch stamp are both free clear stamps that came with different issues of Craft Stamper.  The watches are stamped in Versemark on gloss card and randomly brayered with Soothing Sunset Big and Juicy ink.  The background coloured card is gloss card inked in the same way just without the watches.  The sentiment is stamped and embossed using the same ink and clear embossing powder on gloss card and punched out then layered on the inked gloss card die cut with small Scalloped Circle Spellbinders then on a die from Spellbinders Parisian Accents.  The other bits and pieces are from my stash.  I have added lots of glitter, I do love sparkles!

I would just like to apologise for being behind with my blog visits and comments, I am going to have a catch up tomorrow! Thanks very much for visiting. xx

This is lovely Chris - just love your background what lovely colours. The sparkle on the doilies is fab and I like the black against the pastel shades xx

Hi Chris, I can't remember the word stamp from CS - now how did I miss that?
Not to worry, you have shown it used to perfection. Love how you have made this card and the colours are scrumptuous.
Hugs, Neet xx
ps nearly forgot to say Thanks for joining us at Artful Times again this week.xx

This is beautiful, Chris - I love the dark frames and the touches of sparkle. Gorgeous work!
(To answer your question, I can't remember what I used to put the perfect Pearls onto the tag(!) but Versamark would work just fine. Actually, I think I may have added them to water in Mini Misters and sprayed them on.)
