|Hero Arts blog monthly challenge HERE!|
This is a little shape card I made this afternoon. The original idea was to make the top of a grandfather clock, but I determined that would be a bit too fussy to pull off and so I went for the mantel model. My Nana used to have one of those copper cast Western horse ones at her place and it's a wonderful memory for me. I love this Hero Arts set with the old-fashioned clocks and the beautiful sayings in this font! Looking forward to getting a haul soon filled with the just-released Basic Grey/Hero Arts stamps!
In case you were wondering about the details above, I used some old patterned paper [I find it sits on my shelf so I can admire it more than use it...] glued it onto a plain card; made my own template and cut out the shape. I embossed the clock face and used a large punch to cut the circle, and I used a circle cutter to make the copper paper frame. [which I am only now realizing I could have just layered--talk about getting into the realism of the clock! I kept thinking the "cover" needed to open!]
