Time to Celebrate



I don't seem to create a lot of masculine cards, not sure why as I live with a house full of men!  The December Technique Junkie Newsletter provided me with a good opportunity to create a masculine card using the Chalked Emboss Technique.  What a great way to use chalks to create a stunning background!  I used STAEDTLER Soft Pastel Chalks as my medium and the Clock Embossing Folder on Saffron card stock, then added the sentiment from Our Daily Bread Designs Time set.  To embellish I added some Clock Gears, spinner game pieces and an Vintaj Jewelry Blank I embossed.

Details:
Stamps - Our Daily Bread Designs Time
Ink - Ranger Coffee Archival, Distress Stain Wild Honey
Card Stock - Saffron, Chocolate
Other - Glue Stick, STAEDTLER Soft Pastel Chalks, Non Stick Craft Mat, Gears, Spinner, Embossing Folder, Vintaj Jewelry Blank, Sanding Block, Dimensionals, Heat Gun, Seam Binding

Hi Lisa. Your elements of time card is really pretty! I love that clock face embossing folder! Very nicely colorized! I also love all of your embellishments...including the Vintaj piece mixed in with Tim's sprockers and gears. Your bow is a perfect finishing touch!
