It is my husband's birthday this week and we were bemoaning the fact that birthdays seem to come around too quickly these days and how time flies. Hence the inspiration for this card.
I prefer to make my own backgrounds which can then be custom made to suit the project. I created some texture on a black card with stencils and 3D paste. Using a baby wipe I applied Postbox Red & Burning Bonfire to the whole card - considering it was black card it took only a small amount of paint to cover!
The card was then stamped and stencilled off the edge in various paints and Archival ink (a list of the stamps and paints are listed below), the edges were distressed so the black card showed through.
The Weathered Clock die-cut and the Altered Egos Time pieces were painted with Hot Cocoa then Goldfinger, dabbed with Copper and finally smudged with Black Soot.
I found a clock piece in my stash that perfectly fitted the pocket watch from Altered Egos Time to which were added a couple of die cut wings cut from cardboard, embossed and painted with Ruby Slippers,
The project is on 8 x 8 card therefore after my hubbies birthday I will mount this on a canvas which I have already prepped so that he can hang it in his study.
