Time Flies

I don't know where the time goes, but boy does it fly by. This seems especially true when I get creative. Take today for instance, I decided to create my tags for the Creative -Block Stampers Anonymous Yahoo Group. I was up bright and early to get working on them and before I knew it, it was 5:00pm. Don't get me wrong it is wonderful to have the entire day to just sit back and create, I just can't imagine where the time goes.

I started by painting a tag with acrylic black paint. I then stamped the edges of the tag using a stamp from the Tim Holtz Regal Flourish Stamp set and various colors of Gelatos (something that I have had for sometime and had not used).

I then trimmed another tag down slightly and colored it with various colors of Gelatos. I then stamped the tag with Archival Black ink and a stamp form the Tim Holtz Stuff to say Stamp set. I wanted to add a bit of texture to the tag so I used another Tim Holtz Stamp form the French Market set and some Black Soot Distress Embossing powder.

I cut 2 flowers out of watercolor paper using the Tattered Florals die. They are colored with, you guessed it, Gelatos. I went around the edges a bit with some black acrylic paint to give them a grungy look and to make them pop off of the tag a bit.

I wanted the wings to be light and airy, so I used I stamped and embossed a piece of vellum.  I then fussy cut the wings out.

I used gesso, Gelatos, and acrylic paint to give the metal pieces and the clock tucked uder the flower petals a grungy sort of feeling.

I am going to submit this to the Frilly and Funky There's No Time to Waste Challenge.  Thank you so much for stopping by.


  1. I like the bright colors. I've got to get my gelatos out!

  2. Just lovely, Stacy, and thanks for showing the steps, I can never remember to do that! I need reminders of ways to use my Gelatos; they mostly just sit!

  3. Great job! Love the bright colors!

  4. Very pretty - love the colors and the black really gives the colors a punch!
