Well, it is the last day of the die blog hop. I hope you have enjoyed seeing some of the new dies! My final card features the new Pocket Watch die set (DIE088-R) as well as the coordinating It's About Time clear set (WP493). The pocket watch set can make a traditional pocket watch as well as a watch that would go around the wrist. I chose to do something that would resemble a watch. To make the card, I fist cut out the watch from a light chipboard and the center of the watch from white cardstock. I then inked the chipboard with silver Inka-Gold to make it look metallic. (Just a sidenote here...the product is called Inka-Gold even though it comes in a bunch of colors, such as silver.) Here is a picture of the first step:
For the next step, I stamped the watch face on the white cardstock in waterproof black ink and placed it inside the faux metallic outside. I then filled the whole thing with Diamond Glaze to make it look like a real watch face. This took a long, long time to dry:
Here is a close-up of the finished embellishment:
The backgrounds of the card were stamped with the Random Lines Cover a Card (CC096), and the Swirls and Stars Cover a Card (CC054). The saying is from the same clear set as the watch face.
