Sense of Time - Vintage / Distressed

Sense of Time



I am participating in a Vintage / Distressed swap at the SU! Convention in a couple of weeks and wanted to create something original and really "old" looking!  This is what I came up with!  I LOVE it!  I love it so much, I created an extra one so that I can send it in to SU! for next months WOW ART contest!  (I'll keep you posted on that!)

I started this card with Naturals Ivory cardstock.  I then used the background stamp called en Francais and versamark ink.  I followed this with clear embossing powder over the script and used by SU! heat tool to set it.  Once this was cooled down, I used my brayer and the new Krumb Cake ink and covered the card being sure not to do it perfectly.  Remember, I want it to look old and worn out.  Next, using Stazon black ink I stamped the cog pieces from the stamp set - Sense of Time - Item #113804 - $22.95 all over the card.  Using SU! new DSP called "News Print", I tore a strip and distressed it using a sponge and the Krumb cake ink.  Using another piece of the DSP and Stazon ink, I stamped the clock face and cut it out. I stamped the face again on Natural Ivory and punched out (using the 1" circle punch) the seconds circle and mounted it with dimensionals.  I used a 5/16" neutrals brad in the center.  After assembly, I used the Log Cabin Smootch Spritz to really make it look old!  The entire project was also sponged with Krumb Cake ink!
