Precious Time

For this week's sample, I used the Generation Redux plate from Artistic Outpost as well as For Mother designer paper from Pion Design. The two women were stamped on white CS, masked and the music score from Ephemera Backgrounds was stamped over the piece and then the entire piece was sponged with Vintage Photo DI. The Pocket Watch die with the largest of the three Sized Circles Movers and Shapers dies in the center were used to cut three pieces of chipboard. The top layer for the set was run through the Springtime Backgrounds Texture Fade. The chipboard was then layered/glued together, painted with gesso and, when dry, sponged with Victorian Velvet DI. The leaves were cut from two different Sizzlet dies from white CS, dabbed with Bundled Sage DS and when dry, sponged with Vintage Photo DI.

I also made a little strip of paper lace using the Vintage Lace decorative strip die. It was also cut from white CS and sponged with Bundled Sage DI and edged with Vintage Photo DI. Because distress inks work as embossing ink too, I sprinkled some clear embossing powder on the strip, flicked it off and then heat embossed it. Resin flowers from The Funkie Junkie Boutique added as embellishments.
I wanted to have a sweet Mother's Day sentiment added so I created one on my computer and printed it out. It says Day in and Day out...Mother, I love you all the time! I used the Tiny Tabs and Tags die to cut it, stamped it in Coffee Archival Ink with the floral filigree stamp from the Artistic Outpost Serenity plate and then sponged it with Victorian Velvet DI. A small scrap of rayon seam binding dyed with a splatter of Tattered Rose DS, a pretty wooden button and a bow of burlap string topped off the tag. When I glued the pocket watch die cut to the card, I left a space with no glue so I could slide the tag in.

A really gorgeous creation - the pocket watch works brilliantly as a frame - what a genius idea!
