The Corpus Clock

Hi Bloggers,

Today I would like to share with you a layout that I made to include rubber stamping and texture.

I used a cog border stamp to stamp a "frame" around the edges of the grey background card, then added some mesh.
I stamped steampunk spiders and butterflies on the kraft background card in black ink.
Then I stamped extra spiders with black ink and embossed them with clear powder before cutting out to use as embellishments.

The "brick" mat behind the photo was made using an embossing folder. I applied ink to the folder before running it through my Bigshot. I just love how it turned out!
The edges were distressed and then inked before stamping the title and journaling - I wanted a graffiti look.

I cut various cogs and gears with my Cricut.
Some I embossed using several different embossing folders.

Some I heat embossed in gold before running through an embossing folder.

Some I covered with Tim Holtz Rock Candy Distress Crackle Paint.

One I covered with clear embossing powder...

and one I covered with Tim Holtz Distress Embossing Powder.

The large clock was designed on my Gypsy and cut with my Cricut, with gold paint applied to the edges.

I distressed the edges of the background card layers and the "brick" mats to add some extra texture.

I had lots of fun creating this layout. Hope you like it too.
Thanks for stopping by.
