The brief for this challenge was to explore the different ways of incorporating clocks into your artwork. From the moment I read this, all I could think of was this song and my entry comes directly from that idea.
All the stamps are from Clarity. It is just the sentiment that does not come from Clarity but is just the title of the song, sung by Stanley Holloway in "My Fair Lady".
The clock part comes from the use of two of the small fob watches. The round full face one made the wheels of the carriage - hence the on time reference. The side facing ones, I had the idea of blacking out the faces and turning into people forming a guard of honour holding staffs. The winders became their heads, onto which I drew top hats. The bride and groom came from the new wedding Wee Folk. The fence posts were created using the trunks of the trees in the background.
I actually made two cards to see which I preferred. The first one, which is also the one I have decided to use as my entry, was done on white card, while the second was done on cream card. I like both, the second being more moody, in my opinion. However, the texture of the cream card meant that the stamped image needed work to fill in the gaps.
In both, the trees and the church were coloured in with blendable pencils, which I also used to edge the sentiment on each.
Now I have done this card as my entry, I will now go back and look at all the other entries. I never look until I have finished in case it changes my ideas.
