Art work for a couple swaps for May

                         Miriam from my In My Vintage Room and Beyond Group hosted a
                                               April Showers brings May Flowers Swap
                she provided us with the postcard she wanted us to use to create our art work on.

 I used G45's new Secret Garden paper line, Catherine Moore's Character Construction stamp set Timekeeper's Garden to design my postcard.
I also used Flower Soft to accent the flowers, and Glossy Accent on the dragonfly and fairy wings. And Copic Markers to color the stamps.

Character Construct is another group of very talented ladies from all over the US and I believe there are a couple ladies from Germany that swap with us also...the theme for our May swap is Steampunk.

On these #8 Ranger black tags I first embossed the tags with a Tim Holt's embossing folder that has Time Pieces on it.  I then used his Distress Inks, Stains and Metallic Paints to highlight the embossing along with the the chipboard gears and time pieces I used that were cup from the stop watch  and small gears  movers and sharpers dies. I glued plastic clock faces and hands on them  (from my statch, not sure who makes them)  then put glossy accents on the faces to make it look like they have the glass crystals on them.  I also used some of Tim's small metal gears along with some charms and bling I had in my statch to add to the steampunk theme. I used Character Construction Stamps from the new 2013 Timekeeper's Garden Collection by Catherine Moore.
