Time to Celebrate

Today's card was inspired by a fun challenge over at
 The CAS Stencil ....to stencil over patterned paper.
Something I had never even thought to do....
I have had this two part metal stencil for ages, so I thought I would make a masculine card.
Layer one - Blending a couple of shades of brown inks.
Layer two - Copper embossing paste.
A little foiling for the hands and the top of the watch.
I also stamped and heat embossed in copper the circles and around the edges
 and finished off with stamping the sentiment three times.
What a great way to use up some of my hoarded paper.
I am looking at my patterned paper in a whole different way now......
Thank you ladies for the inspiration x.
Challenges I would love to enter....

The circle stamp and the sentiment are by Uniko

Can't belie e that clock is a stencil, it's fab! And how striking you've made it with the use of metallics. Thanks for playing at Uniko, hope to see you join in with future challenges too.

Gorgeous copper stenciling over your beautiful patterned paper, Mac. I agree, I had never thought to use patterned paper for stenciling either:-) TFS and joining us at CAS Stencil. Your clock is a beauty! Hugs..Nancy

HilaryJane said...

Why is it such a revelation to stencil over patterned paper? I have no idea but now I have a new favourite technique and I get to use the stash of patterned paper that I have hoarded. This card is wonderful, you have created such a great finish with the embossing and foiling. Thanks for returning to your blog with 2 really great cards xx

You have done it again M - created something fabulous with a piece of designer paper dies and embossing. What a spectacular CAS card. The choice of paper is perfect as is the sentiment and the copper circles. Nice touch with the foiled hands. I must try some foiling one day as I bought some at a recent show.
PS Love seeing you back in the crafting circle again. It's 'braw' hehe You know what it means.

TK said...

Great use of the pp, you pulled off the challenge wonderfully!

Sandma's Handmade Cards said...

Beautifully CAS and the watch looks amazing. I really like the touch of bronze that you've used, it looks great on the watch and frames your design perfectly x

butterfly said...

Oh, what a great stencil that is - and I just love the textured look you've given it, and especially the coppery detailing - fabulous! It's easy to forget that patterned paper is just paper after all... and adding mixed media effects can make it even better. Great card, and not just masculine I'd say - I'd father receive this than something pink and frilly!
