Today I want to show you another project I designed for this week's challenge at The Technique Twist.
|Any-Occasion card featuring the Clockworks set with sentiment from Really Good Greetings|
|Clock was done using the burnished vellum technique.|

Here's a quick how-to for the faux wax seal:
- On a piece of scrap vellum dump a small pile of gold embossing powder.
- Heat the vellum from underneath, taking care not to scorch the vellum, until all of the powder has melted.
- Quickly place the gear stamp into the molten pool of gold and leave it in place until the liquid has hardened.
- Remove the stamp. Trim the image so that you have a border of gold all the way around.
- Sponge the edges with Early Espresso ink and adhere to card using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
Here's how I did the clock:
- On a scrap of Brushed Gold card stock, stamp the clock image in Versamrk.
- Heat emboss in gold. Fussy cut the clock.
- Punch the centre of the clock out using the 1-3/4" circle punch.
- Stamp clock face numbers on a scrap of vellum card stock.
- Lay the stamped vellum, stamped-side-down, on the back of the clock, centering the numbers in the punched circle.
- Using a stylus, burnish the non-stamped side of the vellum clockface inside the punched circle. It will turn opaque white.
- Adhere the clock to the burnished vellum using liquid glue.
- Trim the vellum so that it doesn't show around the clock body.
- Pierce a hole in the centre of the clock face. Insert a brad from the back side of the clock face so that the prongs become the hands of the clock.
- Adhere clock to card using Dimensionals.
