The challenge this month at Technique Time Tuesday is so fun and super easy! Go check out the video here. There's also a fabulous prize to the top winner-so come on and play!
Here is my card:
I used the technique on Big Ben and the Eiffel Tower. Everything I used is Tim Holtz except the script in the background and the cardstock I used for the circle in the front and inside.
Normally, I just do a standard A2 card. But I made the pocket watch out of grungepaper, used bronze and silver distress stain and added my buildings and chit chat stickers. Here's the truth of the matter. I made Big Ben first using rusty hinge distress ink. It came out so good. I was just playing but it was just so awesome! So then I blurred the Eiffel tower. And the rest...they say is history.
Here's a close up. I used glossy accents to cover the inside of it to be like glass.
Here is the inside. After I made the first part of the pocket watch my husband said you should make that into a card. I frowned at putting it on an A2 base. That just didn't seem right. So I got out some more grunge paper, die cutted a pocket watch. I used silver distress stain to cover the backside of the first pocket watch. Then I used bronze and silver for the second half. I cut out a circle and used distress ink. Then I adhered the left part so that it would open up and be a card. Thank you hubby! :)
I hope you play. It's super easy and I am sure you already have all of the things you need for the technique. Thank you for stopping by! Until next time my friends...when in doubt-grunge it up! :)
