Scrapbook Sisters Card Challenge 8 - Tick Tock

It's Wednesday (still, just!!) and that means the Scrapbook Sisters card challenge.  This week the theme is Tick Tock...

I chose to interpret the theme by including a clock, and for this my Mo Manning digi stamp seemed perfect to accompany the stamped clock face.

The photos are awful - so sorry, the light has gone by the time I get home and isn't bright enough before I leave for work and my camera flash really stuggles with anything shiny or reflective!

I love this rabbit, just want to give him a hug and tell him it'll be ok :-)  He's coloured with copics, and a touch of glossy accents on his pocket watch

The clock face and sentiment are by Sandylion, bought from Scrapbook Sisters last year.  I stamped the clock in Versamark and sprinkled with copper embossing powder, then distressed it with copper and brown inks before going all over with more versamark and clear embossing powder.  I saw something on the telly the other day about heating your embossing powder from the back for a more even finish (and for me, no burn marks!!) and OMG, it works!!

I've seen a few flowers done like this now and they looked really effective, so gave it a go, I'm not sure I have quite perfected the art yet, but not bad for a first attempt!

From Scrapbook Sisters: Light Tan and Duckegg Bazzill; Happy together papers by Fancy Pants; Sandilion Clock stamp and sentiment; Brown velvet ribbon; Copics; Glossy Accents; Versamark; Copper and Clear embossing Powders; assorted brown/copper inkpads
Other: Mo Manning Image; Duck Egg Pearls; Satin Ribbon; Gem Brad

Looking forward to seeing how you interpret this challenge
