Sense of Time, Sanded
For the second demonstration at the crop in the afternoon I used the Sanded background stamp to stamp the entire page, having stamped off first to lighten the colour each time I stamped. I masked the left and right hand margins before stamping randomly the clock face from Sense of Time, and filled in the gaps with the cog image. Leaving the masks in place, I sponged the entire exposed area to darken it slightly as pictured.
I pre-embossed the two clock faces and the second hand faces and these were framed with the hodge podge accessories currently in the March promotion at 20% discount.
The sentiments were distressed and the two strips of card stock were punched with a spiral punch on both opposite edges to resemble a film strip. I looped some silver cord above the "12" on the clock face and added a bit of colour by using the 1 1/4" striped grosgrain at different heights on each page to tie both pages together.
