This week I am showcasing the newly released Toy Emporium stamp set from Artistic Outpost.
wanted to create something a little different this week and decided to
create a shadow frame using Tim Holtz Pocket Watch Frame die combined
with Eileen Hull's 3D Die; which worked perfectly with the Artistic
inside of the clock acts as my shadow box to showcase the adorable
little girl from the Toy Emporium stamp set. I added a touch of colour
to the imagery using my Polychromo pencils. I also created a mask of the
girl before adding the background stamping. I also included some
delicate paint splatters using Fired Brick Distress Paint. To add
further to the vintage feel I applied a coat of DecoArt Crackle Glaze
and then rubbed over the cracks with Raw Umber Antiquing Cream, removing
the excess with a baby wipe.
added the dimensional clock to a chunky ATC which I painted with Fired
Brick Distress Paint and then covered with a coat of DecoArt Crackle
Glaze, once again ageing further with Antiquing Cream. I also added some
foliage and a mini Christmas Tree for added interest.
I started to put my pieces together I decided to add rusty wire around
the edges of the front piece before thinking about how I would adhere
this to the dimension clock piece. In the end I decided to cement them
together using DecoArt Crackle Paste, which worked perfectly. I applied
Antiquing Cream to the Crackle Paste once dry just to age a little.
A touch more foliage has been added to the top along with a few berries to add to the seasonal charm.
I die cut the pieces I did add decorative paper to the Eileen Hull's 3D
Die before assembling, so that the decorative paper appeared on the
inside of the clock.
