Stormy Weather

Today is windy and pouring with rain so off to the craft room to play.   While playing I came up with this using some of my favourite Tim Holtz stamps, actually I won this set some years ago
 and it is signed by Tim!!!  I have only just bought myself to actually ink the stamps.......

Over at Country View Crafts there challenge for February is a time challenge 30mins or under, this took me 28mins, I had a background already made which I cut to size stencilled some circles over the background with various distress inks, sequin waste was on my desk from something else added a few tiny buttons and stamped my umbrella man in black versifine ink onto the main background and also onto another piece of distress ink background and cut him out. Words from same set on the same background stencilled with circles and cut out, a very quick make  which all came together in a flash.....I do like days like this......

  1. This is so much fun Maggie. Love what you have created.. thanks for joining in with us at Country View Crafts .

  2. Black versification? Is that auto-correct in action or a new type of ink?!! I'm going with the first...
    Glad your quick make turned out so well and in such a short time! Thanks for joining us at Country View Challenges this month.

  4. Really love all your circular elements - the texture and dimension from the sequin waste and the buttons is just great, and I always love to see Umbrella Man. Lovely to have you joining us on A Vintage Journey this month.
