Spending time with Grandpa

It’s time once again for Team B to strut their stuff at Digistamps4Joy. Our current challenge is “How Time Flies” and have we got some fabulous creations to get your creative juices flowing.

I decided that I wanted to show “how time flies” by doing up a scene with a grandpa and his granddaughter. To me not much shows more of how time flies than our children and grandchildren growing up. I used 3 stamps from Digistamps4Joy….Panelled Room, Grandfather Clock, Bedtime Barbs and Gramps to build my scene.

I coloured the image with a combination of my SU felts, Crayola Pencil Crayons, Staedtler pencil crayons and oms. I also used my gold felt for colouring the clock face and pendulum.

The inside was done using a tutorial I found on my teammate Desire’s blog…thanks Desire :D I found the front and inside sentiments here.

Now it’s your turn to show us what you got. Head on over to Digistamps4JoyChallenge Blog to check out all of the rules and prizes that you have a chance to win. While you’re there, check out the fabulous creations the rest of my team mates have made…and maybe leave them a little love. Remember, you don’t have to use a Digistamps4Joy Image, but we would be so so excited if you did.
