Good Morning All,
I'm back with my second project for this wonderful collection of products, the Prima Engraver Collection. Today I have a card to share for those difficult to make for men. These beautiful papers are so versatile.
I've used my favourite 21cm x 21cm format white base card and then cut a 20cm square from co-ordinating cardstock. I stamped the ruler from the Engraver set of stamps all round the edge using Walnut Stain Distress ink to get the patchy, random look. I lightly distressed the edges and blended a little Walnut Stain DI and attached it to the card with double sided tape. I followed this with a smaller square of the Caligraphy paper design from the Collection, again distressed and inked around the edges and I wrapped some hemp thread to one side too.
Next I took some more of the co-ordinating cardstock for another smaller still square, ran it through an Alterations embossing folder and then highlighted the embossing with Walnut Stain DI. Then came a piece of corrugated card from which I ripped some of the surface layer before lightly covering with watered down tan acrylic paint. I then stamped it with the number stamp from the kit and inked the edges again using the Walnut Stain DI. I attached it to the embossed square and again wrapped some hemp thread.before attaching it to the card.
I cut the watch image to size from the paper, distressed and inked the edges and attached it to the card. I cut the word 'LOVE' from a scrap from my first project and the tickets, inked all the edges and attached them to the card with 3D foam pads. Finally, I highlighed the area on the watch face with Crackle Accents which very obligingly went a nice sepia colour all by itself as it dried, lol!
That's it from me for today but I'll be back in a couple of days with my final piece for this week. I hope you get chance to drop by.
