Time Flys

Happy almost Christmas my blogging friends!
Are you ready??? I think I am - we will see!
So happy that I have managed to squeeze in some scrapping time,
I am only three days behind in my DD - not bad, huh?

Today I have a LO I made with the sketch over at Stuck On U Sketches 
The sketch was holiday themed, but I took it in a different direction, using an everyday 
photo on my LO instead. Here is a peek
My papers are from Pink Paisley, and I have also used Bazzill, May Arts, 
Tim Holtz Grungeboard, Prima jewels, Ranger, Basic Grey, 
some stuff from my stash and Inka-Gold.
Have you used Inka-Gold??? Let me tell you this stuff is THE BOMB!!!!
Where has it been all my life??? It is a paste that you apply with a sponge 
and it dries almost instantly!!!
It is so shiny and shimmery, you will want to put it on everything!
I have been covering my studio in the stuff!
But I digress,,, for this LO I used it on the birdcage, the fairy wings and 
the butterfly in the title above. See how sparkly it is?? I applied Lava Green 
all overand then Rose to the edges. I am using Rangers Cut n Dry to apply it. 

I did a fair amount of layering on this LO because I wanted it to really have some dimension. 
I used 3 layers on the bottom as you can see here,  and a couple at the top. 

Here is a look at the sketch I used from SOUS
I rotated the sketch 90 degrees to the left to fit my photo. 

I am also linking my LO over at Bird Is The Word  ~ "Time"

If you are in the North Texas area you can get the Inka-Gold colors at The Crafty Scrapper in Waxahachie
If you are not lucky enough to live here, Google it - there are tons of places that sell it online.
Thank you for hopping by my blog! 
Have a wonderful and safe Holiday!
