For this challenge I chose to use two retired stamp sets Clockworks and Curly Cute.
The background technique is achieved by embossing in gold, silver and copper with the cog images and then just using the versamark to randomly ink up different areas and heat emboss in silver.
I used the sponge daubers to sponge a background before heat embossing in several tones of blue.
The clocks were fussy cut and painted using our watercolour pencils and then clear heat emboss to give the clock faces a glass cover effect.
These techniques can be used on any project you choose and Stampin Up have hundreds of lovely stamp sets to chose from, just pop over to my shop to buy (the shop button is at the top left of the page)
