Clocks Birthday card
Another one with a strip of card mounted onto the base, as the base card is textured.
The strip of card was sponged with yellow & orange Distress and Adirondack inks.
I overstamped it with clock images, mainly Paperartsy, and some cogs stamps from The Artistic Stamper. I used the darker Oranges I'd used on the background, as well as Adirondack Caramel and Hazelnut, and some Espresso, using the second impression.
I heat set all these inks, then stamped a larger clock, again from Paperartsy, in Copper Pigment ink. Heat embossed these with copper powder.
The clock face then got a layer of Glossy Accents to mimic the glass front of a pocket watch.
Left that to dry overnight, meantime I matted the strip to the front of the card.
