Time Flies

What gorgeous weather we're having here in the UK at the moment, let hope it lasts a bit longer. I've made this card to enter into the Technique Tuesday Challenge, which this month is Faux Leather. This is a fun technique which Mynnette shows you step by step how to make over on the blog. I've really enjoyed getting covered in ink making this project. I started by covering my card with little pieces masking tape as the instructions told me, and then I inked the background using a Walnut Stain distress ink pad, and then embossing with clear embossing powder. Next I cut out a clock from the Tim Holtz sizzex die (this is the first time I've used the die and I've had it over a year) and coloured again with the Walnut Stain, as this did not turn out as dark as  thought it would, went over the top with some Black Soot. I then stuck this onto the Faux Leather using dries clear glue, and placed the hands on with a brad. I created the Tick Tock and Time Flies with the PC using a typewriter font, I used a little walnut stain and black soot around the edges. Next I stamped this gorgeous beetle, from Chocolate Baroque called Steampunkery, onto some white card twice, and embossed using Wow brass embossing powder. I then coloured the beetle using Distress pens and cut out, the first one I cut everything out and the second one just the body and the top part of the wings and cover with Glossy Accents. When it was dry I placed the beetle onto the card using some glue gel to lift it away from the surface a little.



Thank you for taking the time to look, and your kind comments which are always appreciated.

  3. This is certainly a great background technique - must have a go at that. I just love that TH clock die which is on my wish list along with the CB stamp set. Great card.
