Embossed Metal Foil Clock

This is a short and sweet!

It's so easy, it's almost sinful!

I used Regal Flourished embossed Metal Foil Tape on a piece of Chipboard.

You can use pieces, it doesn't matter, just make a pleasing pattern.

It's had many colors of Alcohol Inks added in layers.

Let it completely dry and sand off to reveal the silver again.



  

The Weathered Clock and Hands  are made the same way only it's embossed AFTER it's die cut.

I used a Texture Wheel from Ten Seconds Studio on the hands and Black Soot Alcohol Ink.

I think they turned out looking pretty cool!!





There's a tiny bit that doesn't get embossed, just run it through again just on the section that didn't fit.

The Clockface center is from Tim's Lost and Found Paper Stash

It fits perfectly!!!

I added some Distress Inks and a crackle stamp over the clockface.



To give it some depth, I layered it all with chipboard and added the piece of light colored paper at the back for contrast.

It's a diamond shape, so it should add a different look to a wall hanging group.

Be well, and have a great week.

I'm planning a vacation get-away, and I can't wait to get out of Dodge!
