Time for Vintage

Hello to everyone out in blog land.  My card today is a little vintage for the Paper Players Challenge #105 and Simply Stampin' Theme - Vintage.  It's a clean and simple card that would be easy to recreate.

My card base is Island Indigo card stock.  A layer of Fan Fair designer paper was sponged around the edges and added to the card front.  I then stamped one of the images from the Clockworks stamp set on a piece of Naturals Ivory card stock with Crumb Cake ink.  I also stamped the water marks from the French Foliage stamp set on this layer.  The Bone Folder was used to break down the fibers on one corner so I could separate the layers.  I then curled them around a small paint brush handle and sponged the edges with Crumb Cake ink.  It was also spritzed with the Color Spritzer and a Crumb Cake marker.  I matted this layer with More Mustard card stock and attached it to the card.  The clock and clock face from the Clockworks stamp set were heat embossed with VersaMark and gold embossing powder on Naturals Ivory card stock.  I also heat embossed the hands on the face using VersaMark and black embossing powder.  I spritzed both in the same way I spritzed the image layer.  The clock was cut out with Paper Snips and the face was punched out with the 1-1/4" Circle Punch.  After sponging around both with Crumb Cake ink, the clock face was attached with dimensionals to the clock and the clock added to the card with dimensionals.   Well, that's my card for today.  Let me know what you think or if you have any questions.  Thanks for visiting; have a great day.

I love this card Patti. Great color choices and nice touch with your bone folder to break down your fibers. I always forget that technique.
