The image for this month’s Stamp Of The Month Challenge at From The Heart Stamps features a pocket watch and flowers. I was not entirely certain how to use it at first then decided to go for a more vintage look but still keep some vibrant colours in the flowers.
From the Heart Stamps – Time To Bloom
Adirondack ink pads – Latte and Mushroom
Clarity Stamps – Letterbox Kit
Clarity Stamps – Word Chain 3
acrylic pocket watch stamp
A4 kraft card
designer paper from stash
oval die set
X-Press It card
I have used two copies of the image and selected parts to decoupage for dimension on the flowers and the butterfly.
The kraft card has been folded to make the card base.
The image was cut with a scalloped edged oval die and the background inked using a brush while still in the die to get the white border.
The insert is made using multiple stamping of the pocket watch acrylic stamp and then the paper toned down from the white by brushing it with ink.
Thanks for dropping by. Take care.
