Wait a MINUTE!

Whoohooo! It's Wednesday, that means were halfway & closer to the weekend!! Today I am taking a little trip out for the day to Leeds for a spot of shopping & research whilst my other half takes an exam!! 

Before I go out though I thought I'd share a card I have made using some new crafting goodies I bought at the weekend ...

For this card I used another Retro Sketch for my card LO, you can see this weeks sketch HERE & below.

I started by stamping the cog image all over my card base using some yummy Versamark Dazzle Frost ink. It has a lovely frosty shimmer & is a NEW ink to my collection! I then used the PTI's Wine Bottle die to cut a piece of white card stock that I had pre-stamped with the cog image in white pigment ink. 

I then over stamped the 3 circles from the 'Time' stamp set & you get this cool velvet type effect. I followed a technique I had seen HERE over on Hero Arts. I used some NEW to me ink pads for the circles which is Ranger Archival Ink in Aquamarine (available to buy at The Stamp Attic) and Watermelon to stamp the clock face.

I am addicted to making lovely rosettes out of all kinds of patterned paper using my new Memory Box Rosette die! On this card I used a scrap of PTI's distressed dots paper. A simple button finishes it off!

In the photo below you can see the shimmer of the Versamark Dazzle Frost & the velvet technique along with the dimension of the rosette.

Ok, so thats all from me today but I will be back again tomorrow with another project!! 

Just if you were wondering both the TIME & EXTRA TIME stamp sets are back in stock on the website HERE!!
