Had a little play last evening, made a post card. The base is Watercolour card from a pad designed to be used for small artworks and send to friends. They were on offer at Hobbycraft recently and make an interesting platform as you can see they take stamps and other mediums very well.
A couple of stamps were inked in the making, and a little making employed to tie them together. Next the Tando Creative circles mask was laid over the stamped card and various orange shades of DI blended over. Taking the mask off some of the blank circles we coloured in with Do Crafts pens building an area of bright colour in the centre of the postcard. Now it just happens that one of the stamps I used is Hero Arts 'Watch Gears'.
What better to add to this than some little metal watch and clock parts, the hands and various cogs were added with the help of a lot of glossy accents. It had to be left overnight for the glossy stuff to set, this morning I saw the result properly, in natural light. It is exactly the effect that was intended, it's good when stuff works the way you want.
The postcard is for the UK Stampers June PC swap - Anything goes with Circles and Stars (the centres of the cogs where the spokes look like little stars). New members are always welcome if you are interested in joining a friendly crafting group.
