Tick Tock Card by Debs

Hi all

Debs here with my latest piece

For todays piece I made a card with a matching tag.  I used Ranger Distress Paints in Ground Espresso, Antique Linen, Frayed Burlap, Walnut Stain, Burnished Brass, Tea Dye, Gathered Twigs and Old Paper, and applied them with a brayer on Kraft Glassine, using different layers of paint, then stamped images using the same paint. I used Tick Tock A5 and Time and Keys Plates with using the same colours.  This technique actually is really easy and uses very little paint. You start off with one colour usually a dark one and then just add different colours using on a little amount each time, you will eventually cover the page but thats not the idea at the start and work from the outside in with the brayer using light rolls it makes a great background!

 The tag was done in exactly the same colours and using the same stamps.  I stamped the fob watch from the Time and Keys plate onto card added some distress ink and then popped some glossy accents over the top.  The backing of the watch was done UTEE in a melt pot.  I wanted to create a case for the watch so I stamped the image into the utee which then enabled me to put the watch into place  the little bits of UTEE were just little bits that had dropped off as i was pouring the UTEE i just happened to like the look of them on the tag.  Live in the moment metal embellishment was added to another bit or poured UTEE.

In the top corner i added some texture with some clear texture paste and some fibres through the top and painted the edge of the card with tea dye paint.

You can just see the texture in the corner here

The glossy accents on the  watch not quite sure how the colour changed here. 

Thanks for popping in and don't forget to upload your entry into the challenge, I do enjoy seeing them all
