Snazzy's DT Project #2 Prima Engraver Collection (by Lesley)

Good Morning All,

I'm back with my second project for this wonderful collection of products, the Prima Engraver Collection.  Today I have a card to share for those difficult to make for men.  These beautiful papers are so versatile.

I've used my favourite 21cm x 21cm format white base card and then cut a 20cm square from co-ordinating cardstock.  I stamped the ruler from the Engraver set of stamps all round the edge using Walnut Stain Distress ink to get the patchy, random look.  I lightly distressed the edges and blended a little Walnut Stain DI and attached it to the card with double sided tape.  I followed this with a smaller square of the Caligraphy paper design from the Collection, again distressed and inked around the edges and I wrapped some hemp thread to one side too.

Next I took some more of the co-ordinating cardstock for another smaller still square, ran it through an Alterations embossing folder and then highlighted the embossing with Walnut Stain DI.  Then came a piece of corrugated card from which I ripped some of the surface layer before lightly covering with watered down tan acrylic paint.  I then stamped it with the number stamp from the kit and inked the edges again using the Walnut Stain DI.  I attached it to the embossed square and again wrapped some hemp thread.before attaching it to the card.

I cut the watch image to size from the paper, distressed and inked the edges and attached it to the card.  I cut the word 'LOVE' from a scrap from my first project and the tickets, inked all the edges and attached them to the card with 3D foam pads.  Finally, I highlighed the area on the watch face with Crackle Accents which very obligingly went a nice sepia colour all by itself as it dried, lol!

That's it from me for today but I'll be back in a couple of days with my final piece for this week. I hope you get chance to drop by.
