A Dash of Christmas Shimmer

Time - Masculine Cards

Time certainly flys by when you're busy, and you may have noticed I have been a little bit absent from posting on my blog this month, as we have certainly been in one of the busiest times! It seems appropriate that I come back with a card with a very timeless image - the gorgeous clock face from the Sense of Time stamp set.

I was inspired to create this card, after seeing a demonstration by Pam Jorgensen at the Stampin' Up! regional training day held in Melbourne last Saturday. I loved the technique Pam used, applying silver shimmer paint to glossy card with clingwrap as the applicator, then brayering over it, and I also love the Elegant Soiree designer series paper and stamp images she used.

Here's my version :

Pam used a vintage brad in the centre of the clock, but I am completely out of them, and need to order some more, so I used a button from the new Designer Buttons Neutral collection, tied with a snippet of linen thread.  The small clock has a pewter brad through the centre, and both are mounted with dimensionals.
The other interesting embellishment is a Build-a-Brad, which you make up with your own stamped or printed image, punched out with the 1/2" circle punch. These are great as they can be individually tailored to co-ordinate with whatever project you are creating, regardless of style, pattern or colour.

Don't you agree the clockface and cogs give it a really great masculine card look - not a flower in sight!

Well, time is still marching on, so I had better go and see if I can catch up with it! I'll be back later in the week with a gorgeous "Dasher" christmas card that some very talented friends of mine all completed at the workshop I did today, then I have a sweet Pocket Silhouettes card to inspire you too - catch up with you then!

Happy inking!
