Making time

Good morning

Today is the last day of my half term holiday. I have had a very busy week and am looking forward to heading back to work. The final term is always good fun, lots of trips and fun activities now all the testing has finished.
This is a card I made for a friend's birthday - 

Once again I have looked for inspiration on Pinterest and it is thanks again to Sheena's Inkoids for their fabulous designs. For my card I have used - 
  • Sheena's stamping card
  • ground expresso, brushed corduroy and hickory smoke distress inks
  • clocks embossing folder from Crafter's Companion
  • Pebeo king gold gilding wax
  • Sheena's time traveller make time stamp and die sets
  • brads from Do-crafts
I inked the clock stamp with the different distress inks and then used a little water and a paintbrush to pull out some of the colour.
The background was made using the distress inks which I embossed when dry and then added a little gilding wax to the raised areas.
I used matt black card and gilding wax to make the cogs.

Thank you for stopping by today.
