LIM week 44 ( card 2)

Another card for 'Less is More',
the theme is a colour one this week
so it's GREEN
I used an image which was a freebie
from another forum member ( see sidebar
crafters reunited). I used TH distress ink
again (peeled paint).I cut two panels, one I
used random distress ink on and one I 
outlined with a Copic ( olive) .I used my
Cuttlebug 'snow' embossing folder to add 
texture to the top one. After distress inking 
the main  clock  image I used a swirl stamp
( no name sorry) to add interest.I added a
large swirl ( TH alterations Sizzix) coloured
to match with my Copic ( olive) again.
Computerized  sentiment ( says time to
celebrate) to add to the swirly theme & I
3d'd the clock hands & added glamour dust
for sparkle. Ideal for a male I think, so I might
make more of these now .
Just to add I got in such a mess making this.
I tried to use black glitter for a change from a
large bottle and it came out in a very large blob
all over my hands! Sticky gloopy mess!!! I even
managed to get some accross the room almost
on my Xmas cards I had just finished....YIKES!!!!
So it was back to the old glamour dust again,
that will teach me for trying something new.
