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.

Using a sponged, streaky background to stamp on, I stamped  Papermania's Beautiful Timepieces square stamp in Wild Honey, and heat set it. Then I stamped the watch again in Copper, and the Happy Birthday sentiment, and heat embossed both 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.
The clock and sentiment got cut out this morning, and mounted onto the front with some sticky pads.

My word Shaz you are making up for lost time - not only in the craft room but with your blog posts too :) Not complaining though as I adore your work and have missed your makes.
