Good Afternoon 🙂
Hope you had a great weekend! We have been busy busy working all weekend once again, the bonus is that it doesn’t feel like Monday today!!! Hehe!
As always on a Monday, Kim Bacon is here with some awesome inspiration 🙂 Over to Kim…
It’s been a changeable week weather wise here in Wales but spring is definitely here! The snowdrops are out, daffs are opening and the sun has been shining more and more.
This week I want to show you a project I did using the lovely melty clock from the new range of stamps by Visible Image.
The clock itself is a fantastic stamp but the sentiment that comes with it is perfect for all sorts of occasions.
I started the piece with a Brusho coloured background in green, turquoise and purple. When this was dry I brushed lightly over the whole piece with some Gesso keeping the brush as dry as possible and barely touching the paper. It lightens the colour and gives a worn look, a bit like faded denim. It also gives a great key to the embossing powder!
Once the Gesso was dry I took the polka dot stamp and dipped it in some liquid Brusho, spritzed the stamp with more water and stamped it onto the background. I left it in place so that the paint drained onto the page.
I then stamped the clock directly onto the background and embossed it with black powder. I stamped the sentiment onto a separate piece of card.
The piece of card was torn to size and then layered up on more torn card in similar colours.

Awesome work by Kim.. love the effect created with the Polka Dot background and brushos. Isn’t the Time is Precious set perfect for masculine cards. Would be great for a retirement card too 🙂 Our stamps are perfect for your mixed media projects, they are so gorgeously thick and deeply etched.
