Chronos or Kairos

Or just old Father Time ...

Hello lovelies, yes another one from me, but this time I'm entering The Paper Artsy Challenge whose theme is Time.  What a fabulous idea! It so open to interpretation. I'm also linking it to lovely Kim Dellows Art it Friday.

I had some idea what I wanted, I'd picked my stamps which was a flower stamp from PA Hot Picks 1008 and I wanted to use this on their metal card and then cut it out. Other than that when I started I had no idea. Well actually when I started I was just playing with an idea. 

I took a Gray/white board and brayered on some Little Black Dress

I adored how this looked but experimented further by adding Blue Glass 

I then sprayed it with Lyndy's Stamp Gang buccaneer Blue. I loved the gold glimmer it gave my board.

Now it was time for coffee and to look at my board to decide where to go next. If you go back a couple of photos you may be able to see the shape of an eye, well I did. 

I used a Fude pen to form a face from what I could see.

I could see it was a man and with time on my mind he became Father Time.

I added some stencilling in Blue Glass and once dry  used the PA stamp on the board as well as on the metal board. I formed a flower  to offset the sinister look of FT.

I hope you like this as much as I do. It was such fun to make.
 Bye for now hugs Debs xx
