DCM Dare - Text



This weeks's dare is to use text, blocks of text.

Well it certainly got my creativity going this time after the mid week flop. I adore text papers & happen to have these gorgeous 7 gypsies papers, classic. The frame was cut from brown card & had three sides covered with black text & just a stip of the red on the fourth side. The card background was a torn strip of red text & those gorgeous spots. The stamps are various that I have in sets of Travel & Time. The corner was given me by my teamie, Rach. I thought this card had an autumnal feel so went with the pumpkin corner. The weather has certainly been autumnal but if you look closely at my card, I captured a shaft of sunlight!! I aged the stamped clock & the Time is The Key to Life with brown ink but used blakc ink on the rest of the edges.

I used 3D foam to raise the quote & the clock. Well, it is finally the weekend & I can set about decorating my CJ & finishing a scraplift challenge. But first I deserve a well earned soak.

What a beautiful card Paula. I particularly like the frame idea, which I may very well "cardlift" if you don't mind.

Paula, this is so clever - really like the way you've done the frame and used the lovely paper - that 7 Gypsies pack is sooo delish, isn't it?
