MC June/13_Vintage Clock - Time Flies

Had a nice play day with my friend yesterday. While she was die cutting a bunch of stuff, having fun with my dies... I was creating a couple cards using my newest dies and stamps.

The vintage clock is from Memory Box. You can buy a stamp to go with it, but I decided to just make a digital one in my Adobe program and cut with my electronic cutter, then color it.

This is a tall card 4"w x 8.5"h side folded white card. I sponged Distress all over it, mainly using my dirty sponged and not adding more color. Then sponged a bit of Walnut Stain around the edges. Dropped water droplets and dried. Stamped a distress background stamp (Glitz Designs) with Walnut stain and just tapping here and there.

Adhered my clock Punched out a scalloped circle and stamped with Penny Black "Glory of Modesty" bkgr'd stamp and clear embossed. Adhered to clock. Colored the hands with Versafine Black Onyx and clear embossed.

The swirly pieces are Impression Obsession die cuts (062-F) from white cardstock. Sponged with Distress "Peacock Feathers" and embossed with Rustique Tin Can embossing powder. Added the half pearls adhering them with some Golden's Gel Medium.

Wrote in the words "Time Flies" in my Fickle font with a Micron pen. Stamped the Thinking of You (Quietfire Design) with the black and clear embossed.

The butterfly (Memory Box "Kaleidoscope") was die cut from a scrap piece of decorated paper, embossed with Stamp n Bond, then sprinkled with eCraft Designs Warm Diamonds micro fine glitter and heated to set.
