Postcard - Time Is A Companion

Created for the Sunday Postcard Art Challenge where the theme is all things masculine.  I'm not sure how well this represents masculine, but it's not pink and there's no flowers! lol.  I decided to use dark purples when I came across a time themed digital collage sheet (when rumaging through my stash for ideas).  I kind of think of pocket watches and clocks as more masculine items, so that's what I ended up using.

Cardstock - Taffeta Smooth White
Golden Fluid Acrylics - Dioxazine Purple, Paynes Gray
Golden Gesso
Stencil - Studio Calico: Circle Graph
Old book Page - From Stash
Digital Collage sheet - Etsy
Stamps - Tim Holtz
Ink - Archival: grape
Posca paint pens - Purple, Black


  1. a real eye-catcher, wonderful piece with so many layers and an adorable quote

  2. Modern manly men go pink and purple. =0) I think it turned out wonderful. Love all the creating you have been doing. Very inspiring. Hope you are doing well all the way around. *hugs* =0)

  3. I think it definitely has a masculine feel with the darker color scheme and the images you chose. Really like the gridwork-looking tunnel-y image and quote.

  4. Hahaha, it's not pink! And it's a great card!

  5. wonderful card! and the quote is great!

  6. Great depth in the background, and you can't go wrong with book text. I think it comes off as masculine. Very nice.

  7. Beautiful!! Love the colors and the fact that purple can be masculine!

  8. What a gorgeous postcard - lots of lovely layering, super stamping and the words you have chosen are meaningful. Thanks for sharing this.

  9. A brilliant entry Rachel, I like the colour and the clocks. The sentiment is fabulous, good luck with this one.
