Time ...

... Have you got enough to go look at the wonderful creations at Tuesday Taggers.

Hi Guys

Time for another challenge at Tuesday Taggers and this week the theme is Time. I did wonder what I would do for this but then I remembered I had the 'Sense Of Time' stamp set from Stampin' Up!

I have done something a little bit different for me this week. I have used metal.



Firstly stamp onto metal with Staz-On (you need a permanent ink so it doesn't rub off) and go round the outline of both the full face and also the smaller face at the bottom of the clock. Turn the metal over and place on a soft surface (an old mouse mat will do or a magazine) and start going round in a circular motion with an embossing stylus and the metal will start stretching and you will end up with a 3d part to your clock. I have the filled the recess with crystal effects just so it doesn't get squashed. I did the same for the cogs on the left hand side of the piece.

The card has been inked with Creamy Caramel, Close to Cocoa and Chocolate Chip inks for SU! I inked the whole of the card with Creamy Caramel first. I then went with Close to Cocoa and didn't quite cover the whole of the card leaving the middle bit out. The last colour Chocolate Chip just around the edges. Using the cog stamp I stamped randomly over the piece. I then stuck the two metal pieces on (when the Crystal Effects was dry) and then stamped the quote stamp in a couple of places.

Well guys that is it for now, don't forget to go and check out the rest of the gang at Tuesday Taggers.

Until next time happy crafting
