Hello from a gorgeous bright crisp autumn day in Dublin. Sorry for my absence over last couple of days. My card today definitely reflects the day outside.
Base CS Bazzill. Onto La Blanche specialty stamping paper I stamped two images with versamark - a) the central image (Tim Holtz C0M004 Time) and b) the outer border (La Blanche Clock Background 1297). I then heat embossed both images with clear embossing powder. I inked, dried, re-inked etc the stamped images with various Distress Inks and Windsor & Newton gold calligraphy ink. Placed the 'Time' image in the centre and built up several 'bordering' layers using angel hair paper, mesh, crepe paper, regular paper and cheesecloth. I cut the 'clocks' image to form the final uppermost border. Printed quotation from my printer and edged with Distress Ink. Sparsely embossed some leaves and clock hands with Distress Embossing powder to give slight rust effect. (I couldn't go any heavier with rusting as the 'leaves' kept melting under heat gun!). I punched some branches using Martha Stewart punch to decorate. Affixed quotes to complete.
Thanks so much for stopping by. Hope your weekend is filled with brightness. Nicola x
