Papertrey Ink Blog Hop

Another fun theme for this month's Papertrey Ink Blog Hop  - create a card with a black background.

Now black is a little hard to stamp on, unless of course you emboss, or use white. So I opted to go the die cut route and use my new clock face die as a large decorative item on my card instead of as a clock:



I did stamp a couple of white swirls and then added my metallic silver die-cut clock face with multi-colored sections - kind of reminds me of a stained glass image - especially with the Giga Guidelines image in the center! I found some Copic markers similar to my larger circles and colored in some of the sections in the stamped image. The Make a Wish sentiment is from the new Everyday Photo Finishers stamp set. And a little rhinestone in the center to bling things up a bit.

Thanks for hopping by and I hope you'll stop again soon!

I like how you used the clock die. The Copic colors match your CS wonderfully and I always like to see we ways to use the Giga Stamp set.

Wonderful. Your very own Rose window. That clock face die really does get the old gears turning. That look would be great with a "you color my world' sentiment". (Is that passe now?) Thanks for taking the time to share.
