Guesting at SimonSaysStamp Monday Challenges - Week 4

Hi everyone,
Welcome to my fourth post and project as a spotlighted guest at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenges this March! I am so honored to be invited to guest with them this month and this week's theme is :


To begin, I sprayed the watercolor paper with Distress Oxide Sprays in weathered wood, faded Jeans and Chipped Sapphire. When it dry. I stamped the clock from INVENTOR  on the right-hand side with Distress Archival Ink black soot and number from DAPPER on the left-hand side with Distress Ink picket fence. Then, I apply Remnant Rubs to the paper randomly. At the end, I added some splashes from white gesso here and there and distressed the edges with Distress Ink in black soot.

I dry embossing silver metallic cardstock in two different folders and covered it in Distress Paint black soot and wiped off the excess before it dried.

I die-cut gears from chipboard and used Distress Oxide in Rusty hinge to cover them, then I sprayed them with Clear Texture Spray. When they dry, I used Distress Crayons in different brown and black colors. 

For the Faceted heart, I covered it with Distress Paint in candied apple and aged mahogany. Sprinkled Chunky Metallic Seasonings Embossing Enamel on the top and heated from underneath. Fold along the score lines and sand the edges. Assemble. I wrapped my Faceted heart with copper wires and stick a gear on the right. The sentiment comes from Tim's Quote Chips.

This card has a lot of dimensions, which you can see here since the heart is pretty dimensional.

Don't forget, if you would like to see more inspiration from the talented teamies over on the challenge blog and every week, one lucky random participant has the chance to win a $50 gift voucher from Simon Says Stamp and you can join in up to 5 times, which means you could have 5 chances to win. Good Luck to everyone! You have until Monday 8am Ohio time. 1pm UK time, 2 pm CET to join in.

Until Next Time,
Hugs & Love,
