I just love this set as the clock face is brilliant for fussy cutting and layering up using foam dots (which I’ve done here).
So, for the background (which I apologise, I forgot to photograph during its making as I got carried away!) I’ve used the 1983 stencil and inked through it using Distress Oxides and then turned it 90 degrees and layered up the colours. I’ve then carried on with the number theme and used Count Me In over the top.
Further layers have been added by stamping the number stamp from the set randomly around the clock face and then adding Fibonacci.
For the clock face I’ve squished some Distress Oxide Ink Pads on a glass mat and spritzed lightly with water and dried using a heat gun. Once dry, I’ve given it a little spritz of a gold shimmer spritzing spray (which you can barely see but I know it’s there!)
Before starting work on the clock face, I’ve heat embossed the inky splodge using Wow’s brilliant Rich Gold powder. I love watching it melt… totally mesmerising!
Then, after heat embossing the clock face three times, I’ve secured one full face onto the gold image and then fussy cut the different shards of clock out and layered them up using foam dots.
Some I’m kept at two layers and others I’ve used three. The clock hands are old Docraft stock that I had laying about and were perfect! Having made a hole in the centre shard, they’ve been secured using matching brad that come with the set.
I then decided (rather late on) to heat emboss the cogs around the edge of the card too. Have to admit, this would’ve been easier if I’d done it before gluing the clock in place but hey-ho, you live and learn!
I was debating which sentiment to add to the card and then realised I had the perfect one! The fabulous In Your Hands is oh-so perfect!
After stamping, I’ve used a black fine liner to draw squiggly boxes around the sentiment so it’s encased nicely and then I attached these using foam tape.
To finish the card, I’ve mounted it on another oxide background of the same colour as the clock face so it all ties in nicely.
