I LOVE all things Finnabair.
Having said that, I decided to do another project using her Mechanicals, Stamps, and Papers.
I started with a piece of 3 1/2 x 5 3/4 inch black matboard. I glued the Sunrise-Sunset paper on and trimmed. Then I added a bit of color with Distress Inks.
I had already cut and sprayed these really cool Love Gears by Prima a few days ago, hoping for some time to play with them on a project. They're cut from dark brown paper and sprayed with several colors of Perfect Pearls Mists.
They turned out really cool, IMHO!
Then I took 4 different colors of Archival Inks and applied the colors to different sections of the background stamp.
The result is a new layer of several colors....it's all about the layers, people!
Add the Prima Engraver Linen Tape across the bottom as a base.
The Rose from the talented Finnabair is beautiful in and of itself, but I added Teal Zircon and Boysenberry Silks Glaze. The center is a silver 6 sided brad.
This detail shot shows the stamping with Orange Blossom and Jet Black Archival Inks using the Sunrise Sunset stamp collection.
I added several Junkyard Findings and the extra Hearts that get punched out using the Love Gears Die. The center of the flower needed more color, so I changed it out and also added some waxed linen tread to the wooden button.
I absolutely LOVE all the metal embellishments that are glued around the Vintage Clock Face. Add a few Numerals to fill in the spots.
The pen marks are made with a Royal Blue Gelly Roll Glaze pen...I know it looks black, but its really a very dark blue.
