Hi and welcome to the first day of the hop. We are showcasing "Pocket Watches" today.
When I started playing with this background I really had no idea where I was going! I stained the card stock with Spiced Marmalade and Dusty Concord. Then I laid down a stencil and applied an oak spray. That was really pretty but too stark and wouldn't allow for stamping due to the darkness of the stenciled areas. I added Gesso and sponged over the entire panel with Mustard Seed Ink and then stained more Spiced Marmalade.......and that's how the panel came to be. I think the end result is a great vintage look and works well with MFPSaHC "Pocket Watches"
For the inside I stamped off once on scrap paper so that I was left with a soft stamped image. I love how the sentiment is designed so that it's easy to mask and place the first half on the front and the second half on the back!
Thanks for looking!
