Time flies

Happy Monday welcome to a new week and my latest design team post for Visible Image. The 9 new stencils were released on Friday and are for sale now on their website and from stockists worldwide. Today I am sharing my first make with the very appropriately named new stencil
 I must admit time really is flying by and we find ourselves in the last 10 days of July. This new stencil comes with the mask of the bird too so you have 2 ways of using it. The words and bird can be also be used separately by masking them off but I thought that for a first make I would use the whole stencil to make a really bold canvas.

This is what I got up to.
I sprayed a mix of antique lines, vintage photos and ground espresso distress stain sprays onto watercolour card.
I then added Prima rust effect paste through the bird part of the stencil including the little birds above the letters I and E.
I used gold embossing paste through the "time flies" words on the stencil.
Once everything was dry I added some shadows under the letters using a Vintage photo distress marker.

and I finished off with some splatters of gold ink.
Here is my finished piece
with a couple of close ups

and one final shot.
