Time for Dad.



Hello there blogging friends and a warm welcome to my new followers. It's my day to share my post over at Cheery Lynn designs and the challenge this week is Make it Manly and with Father’s Day fast approaching here in the UK, I thought it would be nice to share a masculine card with you.



 I cut out the Steampunk Clock in black cardstock and also in gold mirri card. I then paper pieced elements together to make the workings of the clock stand out. I rubbed over my mirri card with a little Archival Ink to give it an aged appearance. The clock die comes with a background circle die too, which is a great idea as it really sets your clock off and makes it ‘pop’ on the page. I cut my background out with kraft paper and added a little crackles and distress.



The new Steampunk Corners are a fabulous accent to a card or scrapbook page. I cut mine out in black cardstock and rubbed a little gilding wax over to give a metallic look and complimented them with the gears die on my card which were also cut out in mirri card.


I’m off to the Craft Fair at Ingliston, Edinburgh for some lovely retail craft therapy on Sunday, love you to say Hi if you see me. Thanks for popping by and for your lovely comments, I really appreciate them.

Hope you have a lovely weekend.
