I hope this post finds you all well, I've had a very frustrating few hours with my computer this evening, firstly trying to get into my e-mails and then get an internet connection for long enough to write this blogg !! I have tried to upload the photos four times only to have the signal disconnect at the last moment, however I have finally managed to get the photos where I want them and I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I can get this blogg completed without too many more problems.
The challenge this week at Tuesday Taggers is to use Sepia Tones on our projects.......
I found this little Mantle Clock in The Range a few weeks ago, very cheap, and looking in need of altering, so I decided to use it for this weeks challenge.
The first thing I did was to rub it down a little with some very fine sand paper and then give it a rub over with some tea dye distress ink . I used a Stampin Up Stamp to add some random cogs and sprockets using Sepia Archival Ink, Istamped some words directly on to the clock case and also added others using tissue paper. I used a couple of buttons and some Idea-ology sprockets to add dimension and texture and then overpainted everything with rock candy distress paint.
When the Distress paint had thoroughly dries I worked some Walnut Stain distress ink into the crackles and finally used a Copic marker to add some colour to the glass clock face.
I am really pleased with the end result and hope you like it too. I shall look forward to see what everyone else does for this challenge.
Bye for now Bee xx
