I distressed the edges with a distresser tool and inked them and the clock die cut with Rusty Hinge and Walnut Stain Distress inks. I stamped the plaid clock middle and the plaid dragonflies with Versamark and heat-embossed with copper powder. The sentiments were stamped with either Pinecone or Fallen Leaves Versafine Clair and clear heat-embossed. The smaller dragonflies were stmped with Fallen Leaves VFClair. I used Copper Viva Decor Pearl Pen paint and different sized embossing styluses to make the dots. I colored around a few of the words with a Caramel Promarker. The woman was fussy cut and edged with a Black Promarker.
I used this Splitcoaststampers sketch stretched to A9 landscape size.
Inside: a sentiment composed by me in PSE and printed out on Springhill Digital card, cut with a Spellbinders die and then matted with brown card cut with the next largest of the same die.
The back has a black card mat with brown patterned paper scraps on each end and filmstrips of a Gecko Galz digital image that I created in PSE and printed on Springhill Digital card. I added a stamped and punched siggie.
This angle shows a bit of the shine from the embossing and the copper dots.
Thanks for visiting me and stay cool and safe, XOX.
