Every Moment

Hello All,

For today I will be playing along with Freshly Made Sketches and Time Out Challenges. I thought of this sketch from Freshly Made Sketches and instantly thought of an hourglass and times gone by. So, here is my card for today, enjoy!

This card is all about masking. I masked the different areas to create the 'x' shape. The clock area was sponged using DI in Ground Expresso. I then added the stencil with Stormy Sky and Tattered Rose. It created a nice 'patina' for the card.

If you look at the lettering in the background you will see it corresponds with the 'be happy' banner. The background says: 'every second, every minute, every hour, every day'.
The hourglass, heart sand, and sentiments are from a set of stamps called Sands of Time 2.

The hourglass is popped up using dimensional tape and fits perfectly on the card. I wanted to create some reflectivity, so I Googled 'shading hourglass' and came up with a pencil drawing to follow. It is certainly not as wonderful as the reference drawing but I thought it got the point across well enough.

Challenges Entered:

Thank you so much for stopping by and I do appreciate you taking time out of your busy day to spend time with me. Lots of good crafting vibes headed your way. I hope you all have a fantastic day and please stay safe and healthy.

Well, I gotta say I'm blown away by the design of this card. The hourglass goes with the sketch perfectly and I love how you coloured the top and bottom triangles, gives it such interest and depth. The highlights in the hourglass are incredible, really makes it look shiny and the soft browns give it a real historic feel. I'm so very, very glad you shared this with us at TIME OUT!
