Sunday Stampers week 246 - Monday 25th February

Good Morning Friends,

I hope you all had a good weekend and got in some crafting!  I actually did get some decent amount of time to devote to card-making, so for a change I am nice and early with my Sunday Stampers project this week! Well I would have been if blogger hadn't decided to play up this morning when I tried to do this before leaving for work! Grrrr!
Anyway, I'm here now and ready to share this week's project with you. Hels Sheridan set us the theme of 'texture' this week, which couldn't have been better timing for me. After seeing Lynelle Harlow and her wonderful Dreamweaver creations at the NEC last week - and then on C&C, I was prompted to get my stencils and paste out. After receiving quite a bit of attention around Christmas, I hadn't used them much of late.
So this week's card is a Steampunk cog clock....

I used metallic bronze paste with the stencil and coated it with red, gold and a little green f/x micas before heat drying to create the bubble effect. Then I wiped over the whole area with a duster to remove excess powders. I had actually used white card, so I used Vintage Photo to colour all the white bits.
The clock face I added to the front is a Tim Holz/Stampers Anonymous Visual Artistry stamp; Mr Inventor and the words  are all Sam Poole stamps. I stamped them in Vintage Photo distress ink and then heat embossed clear.
That's me done for now...thanks so much for stopping by!
