Gilded Clock Face...

Hi Folks.. So, it didn't snow in this part of Essex overnight. Well, not enough Snow to write home about anyway! And I'm glad! As nice as it looks, you know full well that it is ganna hover around on the ground for days to come and totally get on everyone’s nerves! Bring on the sunshine I say!...
Just popping by to share with you another sample from last Saturday's Gilding lesson. This isn't one we actually got round to creating. Me thinks the ladies were having too much fun playing around with the other techniques to get round to this one.! But if you fancy giving this one a go, here's a quick step by step.
I started off by cutting out a selection of shapes using the XCut Chronology Cogs Dies (XCU503151) in Blue Card stock.
Applying Flitter Glue
and Silver Gilding Flakes to each one,
burnishing off the excess
to add a touch of distress to each cog.
Repeating the process using the Marianne Craftables Clock Die (CR1234).
To add the element of time to the clock face, I took a couple of Clock Hands from the aptly named Chronology "Clock Hands" pieces (PMA353204)
and Gilded them up a bit to tie in with the project.
Securing them together using a screw head from the Chronology Brad Set (PMA353201).
For my base card, I covered a piece of White card stock with Weathered Wood Distress Ink,
passed it though the Grand Calibur Machine using the Garden Lattice (EG-003) M-Bossibilitie Folder
and then went over the raised embossed image with Faded Jeans Distress Ink to bring out the embossing.
Highlighting areas of the embossing with Flitter Glue and Gilding Flakes to add a slight metallic element!
Arranging the cogs around the clock face
to complete the project... Thanks for checking us out. See you soon. Andy.
