Finally got around to some crafting - thought I'd better seeing as it's Valentines Day on Thursday! And thanks to Kaz, my Facebook friend, for helping me to find my crafty mojo again. Check out her FB page Kazkrafts as she has a great Cuttlebug giveaway, and her blog to see her great projects.
Keith is really into his watches at the moment, especially the ones where you can see all the workings, so I thought I would try & do a card with that theme.
I decided to use a clock mask & cogs group mask by Tando Creative, which I bought over at Polkadoodles. I ran the clock mask through my Grand Calibur onto some white textured paper, while the mask was still on, I went over with some Tim Holtz Ranger Distress Ink in Barn Door. I cut out the clock. I placed a Memory Box cream puff heart die, bought from Joanna Sheen, in the centre of the clock & ran through my GC to get the heart aperture.
I ran the cog group mask through my GC on some gold textured paper. I then cut out the cogs. I placed some red mirri card behind the heart aperture. I stuck the cogs onto the mirri card. placed some bling in the centres of the cogs. I edged the clock with the Barn Door distress ink. I went over the numbers with some glossy accents, found a small love sticker in my stash, stuck it under the 12, then left the clock face to dry.
I used the cog group mask as a stencil & inked through onto some white card with Rusty Hinge distress ink. Inked around the card edges.
Stuck the clock face onto the background.
I think it may need a few embellishments, and there's the sentiment to do - but quite like how it's turning out and glad I have finally done something - watch this space!
