Infernal Devices by Yvonne

Hi everyone, I was so delighted to be invited to the Artistic Stamper Creative team as Guest Designer for October - and it's my birthday this month too!

I decided to create a card using the time and keys and the girl with clock, and I wanted to make it interactive so used a sizzix pop'n'cuts die to create a spinner inside.

I first cut an arch shape from card and covered with Tim Holtz kraft resist, which I then inked with metallic distress stain.  I then stamped swirls from the swirls, splats and dots set with glue and gilding flakes.

I cut the weathered clock from chipboard, then painted with black gesso, then picket fence crackle paint, then applied metallic distress stains again - my new favourite things :)

The skull is stamped onto shrink plastic, shrunk in meltpot with cleat UTEE and backed with foil tape to make it pop.

For the inside I used Tim Holtz's september technique from 12 tags of 2012.

 For the pop-up/spinner I built up layers of stamped watches, diecut cogs and mini gears

I recorded a small video clip to show the spinner action - sorry it's a bit shaky but I think you get the idea!

I hope you enjoyed looking at my first project, and I'll be back on 14th October. Look forward to reading your comments, thanks.
