Getting Sentimental

Gez is hosting Stampotique Designers Challenge this week and she's challenged us to Get Sentimental! Here's what she has to say about her challenge!

"Hi Gez here, I am delighted to be your hostess for this challenge.. I love sentiments and sayings, they really say it all to me! They make a piece finished! I'd like you to share some of your favourite words with us this week! They can be a main focal point or an embellishment, it's your choice! Say it with words... "

If you'd like the chance to win $30 worth of Stampotique stamps, you should play along. Visit Stampotique Designers Challenge blog and be sure to read the rules, so that you'll have the chance to win a great prize!!!

Here's my card, which uses Stampotique's Owl with Wings (Jo Capper-Sandon) and One Second...(Janet Klein).
Owl with Wings (Jo Capper-Sandon) was stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento ink, colored with Copic markers and fussy-cut. Clear Gelly Glaze pen was used on the owl's talons and beak. Glossy Accents were added to his eyes. The owl was then set aside to dry overnight.

Several clock and gear dies (Sizzix Alterations, Spellbinders, Die-Namics, and Cherry Lynn) were used to die-cut black and/or silver metallic cardstock. All the die-cuts were adhered to a card base and Owl with Wings was perched on a watch hand.

The Vintage Alphabet die from Top Dog Dies was used to die-cut silver metallic cardstock. "Tick Tock" was adhered to the upper right and lower left corners.

One Second... was stamped on the upper right and lower left corners with VersaMark and heat embossed with silver embossing powder.

Some gemstones were used to finish the card.

Thanks for visiting today!
