Lots going on ..

Over the past couple of days I've spotted a couple of image/background challenges.

Rein has given us the most gorgeous vintage baby image to use in our artwork(see her challenge here) and Hermine has created a stunning background (found here).

As I was busy printing out the two images earlier today, my printer decided to run out of colour as it was half way through printing out Reins baby, making it go all reddish at the base. BUT this looked great along side the warm colours of Hermines background so I used the two together.

I added the Stampers Anonymous peacock feather and some text. The reason I went with Timeless Treasure is because theres a clock in within all the layers...subtle, but its there :0) The stamped paisley flower finished it all off.

Thankyou girls for hosting the challenges.



Here's the hanging (very large at 23cm x 10cm (9" x 3.75")



Can you see the clock face?

Wow, wow, wow, this is fantastic. I adore your background, I wouldn't have seen the clock if you hadn't pointed it out. Very effective. How sweet is that baby. Your printer is obviously adopting your artistic side.
