Time Fly's

Well we are at the month with clocks my idea was that time flys so fast so here is a history to this with the wee folk
I used to make this
Clarity theother card
Gelli plate
Notelets/ kitchen roll
Distress ink / tea dye/Iced Spruce/Black
Adirondack/ slate/Archival Brilliance iced blue
masking tape
Clarity stamps /wee people/phob watches
Allium/Number kit/Letters
Clarity clock stencil

Masking tape to place stencil so it does not move. then  with a sponge apply the slate ink  go over with the iced blue gives it a metallic look but cant really see this on photo which is a shame
  I put my words on first But was not happy with then so I put  this picture in on purpose to show you   I stamped them again on to a piece of card then cut out stuck on you don't always have to scrap when not happy
 added wee people first then clocks numbers with notelets when can mask the ones that need doing Then with gelli plate I put small amount of iced spruce with brayer then dabbed with kitchen roll pulled my print then did the same with the tea dye was quite proud of the colour effect it gave
 I replaced the stencil because did not think it was dark enough around the edges of clock with slate
 Coloured the bits that were needed with promarkers edged the card with black promarker with the thin tip and around the edge of the stencil Hope you enjoyed this I did


  1. Julie - you have designed a wonderful card; your 'how to' explanation takes us right there - I'm not sure I'd have been brave enough to add the gelli layer, though! Your shading and colouring is a perfect foil for the sentiment. Great! ;~}

  2. Thanks Shelagh you just have to take the plunge hope it goes ok lol

  3. Beautiful card, such super depth to it, lots of inspiration here and great execution and a clear blog to read. Thanks for the inspiration Julie.

  4. I really love your design Julie. The Gelli Print has set it off nicely. A lot of work but certainly worth it. Hugs xx

  5. Wow this is stunning I just love it's well worth the work you have put into this it's lovely. Xx

  6. great design Julie, the gelli print just finishes if off I particularly love the depth of shading you have got in the clockwork stencil - and I can see bits of shading under the wee folk. Lots of work and masking but a fantastic result x

  7. I love this card and the story of a journey through life that it tells Julie. Brilliant work. Xxx

  8. Wow Julie, the depth you have created is stunning, a fab card xx

  9. Such a lovely piece of artwork Julie, the background really sets it off, and I love the addition of the Wee Folk telling the story. xx

  10. Great project, Julie, I love everything about it, especially the Gelli print. Did you place the artwork on the Gelli plate or the other way round? x

  11. Great details Julie - wonderful artwork and you've inspired me to get the Gelli-plate out again this weekend. Thank you for sharing your techniques xxx

  12. Placed the gelli plate down on top of the art work then turned overturned with the Palm of my hand few bits of my masks ce off doing this but easy to put back xx

    1. Thanks Julie. Thought that was probably what you must have done. Will experiment next time I have a Gelli session x

  13. Amazing creation, so clever. Thankyou for the detailed explaination, might have to give it a try. xx

  14. I love doing this sort of project Lynne I think they are fun not as difficult as it looks
