As Time Goes By

TGIF! Hello Peggy here to show you how I made this card using Sin City Stamps.
List of supplies used today are:
Sin City Stamps - clock, steampunk background stamp
Swirl stencil by Sin city Stamps
Chipboard
Metal gear embellishment,  clock hands
Black stazon ink
Gold acrylic paint
Perfect pearls petina set
Distress Inks
Ribbon 
Cardstock


 I started with making a clock out of chipboard. I cut a circle  and little strips for roman numerals. I then glued each piece in place. I was not sure how I was going to color the background, so I had to play around a bit. I stamped my first clock in stazon black ink as I knew I would later be adding more ink and I did not want it to smudge.
Next I played with a new stencil from Sin City Stamps. I used a dabber and distress ink in aged mahogany.

I aged the cardboard with more disress ink. I painted with the perfect pearls to create a faux patina look and highlighted the numbers in gold acrylic. 
I created my card base out of black cardstock and layered with DCWV patterned paper. I added some fabulous ribbon and put it all together. I used score tape for the paper and foam tape for the clock.

Here is my final project! 
I hope you have enjoyed todays card. Come and check out what Sin City Stamps has to offer!
