I had fun going through my newsprint stash and found this lovely piece with an old pocket watch - which happens to fit nicely with this week's challenge at Cardz 4 Guyz - C4G#84 where the theme is "It's About Time". And, as I used some metallic embossing powders on the card, I'm also submitting to this month's House of Cards Challenge - HOC#8AUG, where they want to see Metallics.
I randomly stamped a pocket watch image around the border of my card in Versamark and then heat embossed with a mixture of gold and silver powders. I used my new Postage Rectangle die to cut out the newsprint and added some metallic embossing to sections of the image using my Versamark pen. I layered the finished piece on some dark brown card and adhered it to the card. I finished the front with a simple sentiment mounted flat to the card (for ease of posting). On the inside I cut a mat layer of dark brown card and added a greeting on the cream panel, along with a couple more clocks!
Don't forget to visit our blog to see inspiration pieces from our Guest Designer Sue and also from the rest of the team. You've got plenty of time to play along, deadline for submission is Tuesday 1st September midnight BST (for those of us in the States that's 7.00pm EDT). And remember you can make any kind of papercraft project - we always enjoy seeing scrapbook layouts, 3D projects as well as cards. Have fun!!!
