"Time" is of the Essence!!!

July 13th 2011


This week's challenge at The Octopode Challenge Blog is TIME. Last week if you remember was "Alice" and I used my Steampunk Violet Octopode image because I didn't have an Alice image and Violet would have been perfect for this weeks "Time" theme with her head full of clocks LOL! But I decided to use another Octopode image I hadn't used yet "Angel Girl" - she's pretty cute!


This might sound a bit 'macabre' but I decided to make her look like a very cute and feathery "Angel of Death" advising the recipient that their "time is up" BUT I have included inside the card the wording "you are officially over the hill" to let them know that their time being 'young' is up!!


The look on the Angel's face shows she's a bit worried about delivering this awful news!!


I sponged white & blue paint over the background card to try and give a bit of a "cloud" effect. I found the great packet of feathers at the "cheap shop" and couldn't resist using them behind the angel image. The wording I've printed out on my Dymo label maker. And of course the angel image has been coloured with Copic markers.
