this plate has images specifically for NEW YEAR the clock images could
be used at anytime of the year and in conjunction with many other
images. My background has been created with Distress Stains tarnished
brass and antiqued bronze, applying the stains to my non-stick craft
sheet, spritzing with a little water and mopping up the ink with my
card. I thought these metallic tones work perfectly for a NEW YEAR card.
stamped the clock images in the background using coffee archival ink,
adding across the length of the top edge. I also added a clock which I
clear embossed to the top of my card to embellish and add further
dimension. I stamped my focal image onto white card and coloured with
tarnished brass Distress Stain and then matted onto coordinated card. I
then hung the focal piece from natural twine connected to the two top
corners of my card, attached with brads.
The lettering for NEW YEAR is from the alphabet in the Secretary Pool
plate and the 'N' is an alpha part. I stamped "For Auld Lang Syne"
onto white card with coffee archival ink, cut up and added to the side
of my card.
stamped the clock from the focal image once again onto white card,
added clear embossing to the top of the image for dimension and texture
and added to the side of my card.
