A variation of the same theme from our previous post.  This super card made by Sara features lots of creative detail:
A piece of black card as been embossed and then gilding wax used to highlight embossing for the base layer.
Another piece of black card is used and the large corner die from 'Tim Holtz Gearhead dies' is used on four corners.
The die cut is removed and gilding wax used on them and they are then replaced back in corners.
More single cogs have been die cut and waxed for decoration.
The centre clock is die cut several times and stuck together to give thickness and also gilding wax used on it.
Tim Holtz tissue wrap is used behind the black card.
The clock hands even move so you can put what time you like on the clock.

creative expressions - gilding wax
embossing folder - texture linen

Passing of Time

We have another beautiful card made by Sara today using dies cuts and gilding wax.
For the background Sara as used medical gauze that she coloured with distress ink refills and pulled threads of it to give a frayed look.
Tim Holtz gear head dies are used to die cut cogs from a large piece of black card that is cut slightly smaller than card base.
The cogs have had gilding wax put on them and then put back in black card.
Text paper was used behind black card so that it shows through cogs.
Sara has then die cut the large corner group of cogs and some leaves and flowers out of black card.
The flowers are made from the dies cuts and all pieces have had gilding wax used on them.
The following products are used-
Tim Holtz - gearhead dies
sizzix bigz die - tattered florals
sizzix bigz die - tattered pinecone
Sue Wilson - faux quilled leaves
My creative spirit - black card
pebeo gilding wax - empire gold
