Adventure Is Worthwhile In Itself

I have created a card using the vintage cabinet card die which I coloured with Distress Stains wild honey and walnut stain and then flicked with water. I created a dimensional pocket watch using the pocket watch frame die, coloured with walnut stain Distress Ink and stamped using parts of the stamps from the Charles and Amelia plate.

The image in the centre has been stamped with black Archival Ink and I have added some mini cogs, stamped with parts of the stamps within this set. I added the fabulous sentiment "Adventure is worthwhile in itself" to the centre. For further interest and dimension I also included some ball chain.
The interior of the card has been stamped with more images, I love the left hand side stamping the image twice, once in brown and once in black to give a shadow like appearance and I then stamped the sentiment over the top another of my favourite sentiments "Sprint towards your dreams, you might just take off and fly. I have added two metal keys for dimension along with a wooden arrow pointing to the sentiment. A small tag has been added with the word FLY added and touches of text.
I added PIONEER to the top of the card along with a mini pocket watch stamped with another of the fabulous images from the Charles and Amelia plate, again adding ball chain for further interest.
The back has also been decorated, stamping with black Archival Ink and adding a large brass key and small tag with a touch of stamping.

Thanks so much for stopping by.

I love this! I am a bit obsessed with the clocks and cogs though ;), but this "guy" is a perfect way to use them!
