Greetings! It is "time" for another Blog Hop by the Artistic Outpost Design Team! This time around, we are each working with the Artistic Outpost Lovely Day stamp plate. I was immediately drawn to this plate when it was released and have used it on many occasions for cards of encouragement, Mother's Day, Birthdays, etc. Recently, I found this blank clock face made from card stock at a local craft store. I was immediately intrigued by how I could alter it and without realizing this Blog Hop would be using the Lovely Day stamp plate just instantly had a picture in my head using these stamps on my clock face! Karma, I guess.
For the center image, I stamped the image twice. Once with black StazOn ink and again with Embossing Ink. The second image was heat embossed with gold embossing powder and only the crown and framing were used over top of the black stamped image. The girl and her flowers were watercolored with mostly Spun Sugar Distress Ink . The center image was mounted to the center of the clock face over top of a white and pink doily. I stamped smaller images from the stamp set, trimmed them to fit and added bits of water colored Distress Inks, Perfect Pearls, Liquid Pearls, and gingham ribbon. A set of clock hands, a seam binding bow and a bit of Baker's Twine and a vintage button complete my clock face.
You will not want to miss all the other projects created by the Artistic Outpost Design Team using the Lovely Day plate. Here's hoping you will hop on over to their blogs and be inspired to make your own Lovely spring-time projects.
