Clockworks

have been playing with the great Clockworks set and have come up with a few different looks.
i love the handy background stamps as they are easy to create a variety of looks with only one colour or can make a good cover using 2 or more dfferent shades.
 The clockface is easy to use. i have experiemented with different options. My favourite is to emboss the numbers with white embossing powder then emboss resist sponge the face with Sahara Sand. Lastly I stamped the Watch case and embossed this with the Close to cocoa powder before cutting out the watch and attaching it with dimensionals. i have stamped the hands onto a scrap of double layer cardstock and cut them out also. For several of the watchfaces I have sponged first then added some shimmer paint using a sponge dauber. I also like the clockface sponged in a bright colour like Calypso Coral. For one of the clocks i have stamped onto Vellum Cardstock and cut out the face, either the full face or as a ring.




Using the Pursuit of Happiness stamp set and the verse which invites us to pause made me think about how we need to let time not rule us so much - which was when i started stamping some of the individual numbers flying away from the clock and scattered over the page...
