Hi everyone hope you are all well. Today I am bringing to you a
project using the lovely Carte Postale plate from the
I also used the butterflies from the insects & butterflies plate and the small
clock from the tick tock plate.
Firstly I coloured a lightweight card with distress inks in
scattered straw, antique linen with a bit of
I die cut a piece of thicker card with Tim Holtz on the edge die torn notebook.
I coloured a second piece with the same colours and edged
with black soot distress ink.
I stamped the post card stamp onto the lighter card in versafine onyx black
and clear embossed it
Next I stamped the script from the carte postal stamp in
I knocked it back a bit with a baby wipe.
The clock face was stamped onto distress coloured card
and clear embossed the butterflies were stamped in
chipped Sapphire distress inks and clear embossed
then gently sprayed with mica spray.
The post marks were triple embossed with gold embossing powder,
and then cut out and fixed.
Finally I added a brass clock to sit over the clock face, a final sweep
with black soot distress ink, a keyhole and key
glued it all onto black card to
complete the project.
Thank you for stopping by hope this project inspires you to
dig out your distress inks and have a play.
Have a great day!
