Time to be Creative

Today I have something very different from a normal card to share.  I was recently at AC Moore and saw these amazing plain wood clocks and immediately thought about something I had seen Jill Foster share using wooden birds (HERE) and thought I would give it a try.

The flowers on this frame are from Petal Party and embossed using Versafine Black Oynx ink and Clear Embossing powder.  Then, I colored the flowers with a yellow and orange Big Brush Marker from Design Memory Craft     ** they blend very easily layering one color on top of the other 
Here is a photo of that process:


To fill in the gaps between the flowers, I used a yellow gelato and rubbed it in liberally with my fingers.  I added the butterflies from Social Butterfly (which I again embossed with Versafine Black Oynx ink and clear embossing powder).  I colored them with two shades of blue Big Brush Markers and using permanent glue dots attached them to the frame.  I wasn't sure what I wanted to do with the center of each flower and debated between liquid pearls and Want2Scrap bling....the latter won as I considered those holes a bit big for liquid pearls, lol!
I am amazed with how easy, fast and FUN this was to create
and hope I have inspired you to give your stamps a whirl on wood!  I had NO idea how easy it was/is!!!

Now I need to make a trip to Hobby Lobby!!  There is a LOT of shaped wood pieces there... :)

I am entering this into the Penny Black Art Extravaganza and if you have any Penny Black stamps hope you will play along!

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful day! 
Blessings,
