Tick Tock by Alison

Hello Stampers! For my third & final post this month, I have a card to share with you. I have used Perfect Pearls Mists, which are on special offer this month, on The Artistic Stamper website HERE.


For the background, I swiped chipped sapphire distress stains over a square of white card. Then I lightly misted the cog background stamp with forever blue perfect pearls mist, & stamped it on top of the background. I dried it immediately with a heat gun.


I stamped Phineas Pinchbeck & Tick Tock (from the Tick Tock plate), onto a dictionary page, cut them out, inked them with black soot & chipped sapphire distress inks, then matted them on black card. I glued them to the card as shown.


I die cut some Sizzix mini cogs from mountboard, inked them with chipped sapphire distress ink, then triple embossed them with clear UTEE. Whilst the last layer was still molten, I inked the Europe Map background with versamark & stamped the cogs. I trimmed the UTEE around the edges. I added some watch parts & Ideaology to the cogs, & glued them to the card. 


I distressed the edged of my artwork with a paper distresser, inked the edges with black soot distress ink, then glued it to a kraft card blank. To finish, I added more watch parts, & a layer of matt accents to Phineas' clock.

Thanks for looking!
