Passage of time

Another slightly messier style card from me today - I did balance out a bit with a wide border though! This is a 6" square card and the mixed media panel is 4" square in the middle.

I've combined this week's Splitcoast Stampers Mixability challenge (use book print on your project) with the current Pan Pastel UK Challenge blog challenge to use three textures.

I used modelling paste with some plastic canvas. Once it was dry, I stamped the time sentiment with Versamark and used  Pan Pastel to colour over the paste and the stamping.

My second texture is the part circle cut from gold mountboard and dry embossed and the third is the star which is punched from tomato paste tube and beaten up with an embossing stylus then coloured with a Copic marker for a more copper tone. I used the same marker to make some neutral sequins and tiny pearls look coppery, too.

My French primer text came from the pack of paper ephemera I bought ages ago from a local trader who makes them up by putting together pages from books that are beyond hope in terms of being sold whole.

Came over from SCS to check out the details. I want to experiment with modeling paste. I love that you've used a tomato paste tube for the star punch! Love seeing your work, Joanne.

A fabulously textured piece Joanne. I am so glad I am not the only one to use tomato paste tubes - my family think I'm nuts!!
The white border helps the mixed media to stand out and looks brilliant.

This is gorgeous, really rich metallic tones and I don't think it's messy at all. the border does balance it out beautifully.
