Hard Core Crop Challenge #3 : Char - Antiquing 

Here is my take on the Antiquing Challenge :

I made a simple card with a weathered clock using the Tim Holtz bigz die.
Everything is made out of core-cardstock.
I distressed the edgeg with Tim's paper distresser and some pumice stone ink.

I feel like there is something missing in this card but I'm not sure what it is.
I might finish later or use it as an embellishment on a bigger project.

This is also my last Hard Core Crop Challenge of this weekend.
I'm almost out of time, almost out of supplies and out of ideas that are worth crafting.
I could make some more cards for the Ad, scoring, stripes and trendy challenges but it would be rushing it and without any inspiration and therefore I wouldn't like the endresult anyways! :-)

I had lots of fun and I came to realize that even with a small amount of supplies, in this case core cardstock, you can go a long way! I have some cardstock left-overs and 2 sheets 12x12 that are untouched but I still managed to make 3 LO's, 1 card and 1 embellishment.

Here are the 2 smaller projects together and somewhere in the deepest corners of my mind an idea is taking shape that may one day turn into a lovely project..

  1. I love it! That is an amazing piece. I love the Tim Clock. I am now thinking I may need to get that die. I am seeing his new line of stamps (blueprint ones with Mario's son) and I am drooling... As I am doing my room, I am making a Timmy corner! My hubby is hysterical as he knew I had a lot of his stuff, but when put together it looks like an illness.. Have a great day!
