Vintage Sketches

Word Play, Clockworks, Delicate Doilies, Stampin' Up!, Big Shot, SizzixHere’s another sketch challenge from our Stampin’ Up!® forum.  This sketch was created by Amanda Corbet, and it was lots of fun.  I wanted to use the Word Play stamp set from the Stampin’ Up!® annual catalog, since that one hasn’t seen a whole lot of ink.  And, of course, I had to use my new Lacy Brocade embossing folder with the Delicate Doilies set.  I’m so happy that Stampin’ Up!® decided to partner with Sizzix four years ago.  What did I ever do without my Big Shot?

I decided to do an emboss resist technique with this one.  I stamped and embossed the doilies, then spritzed them with a mixture of Calypso Coral, Frost White shimmer paint and alcohol.  For the other panel, I stamped the sentiment in Soft Suede, then stamped Clockworks images around the sentiment in Crumb Cake.  The watch case is gold embossed, and the rest is stamped in Soft Suede.  I clear embossed the face of the watch so it would look more like glass.

I think I may make a card similar to this one for an anniversary card, but put a wedding picture where the watch is.  Mom just made one similar to that, and she attached the photo of the couple to a magnet so they could keep it.  Clever!!

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a wonderful day!
