Hi and welcome! Monday and of course a new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge. This week our challenge is all about time.
I often use themes related to time and this week I thought it was the perfect time to alter my Tim Holtz Assemblage Clock. I had so much fun making this and made it in a shabby chic style since it was a gift for my sister. She has it on a shelf in her kitchen now and it is really at home there. Instead of using clock arms or a clock image in the background, I used the lady stamp from Stampers Anonymous Classics #5 together with one of my favourite sentiments, also from that set.
Tiny Things set were stamped with Stazon ink and I used one of my favourite text stamps to add words to the background. Hold the cling stamp in your hand instead of mounting on an acrylic block since that makes it much easier to stamp on the uneven surface.
Specialty Stamping paper and cut out a slightly smaller circle. The face was stamped with Archival Jet Black ink and then I coloured it lightly with Distress Inks, making sure to leave the white of the eye white. The rest of the circle was inked and the flowers were stamped with Victorian Velvet. Later I also stamped a clock stamp in three places.
Tattered Pine Cone die, and die cut from three colours Core'dinations cardstock as well as BasicGrey ledger paper. I die cut leaves with the Garden Greens die, also from ledger and text papers.
Before assembling the flowers, the Core'dinations cardstock was lightly sanded and the roses were inked with Frayed Burlap. I also gave them a vintage shimmery look with Rock Candy Distress Glitter.
rub-on stars to the glass.
