Pocket Watch

This is my entry for the Tuesday Color challenge over at The Outlawz. The challenge colors were black, white and tan and the twist was make it vintage.

All of the stamps used on this card are from Gina K. Designs. I used the Timeless Treasures set, which has been retired. The pocket watch and sentiment were stamped with Versamark and embossed with mirror gold embossing powder. I colored the bottom part of the watch with Copic marker Y28. I used glossy accents to fill in the face of the watch and give it a glass appearance. The tan card stock background paper was made with Spellbinder's M-bossabilities Basket Weave embossing folder. I used 3 inks to distress it (Creamy Caramel, More Mustard and Close to Cocoa - all from Stampin' Up!). I wrapped a piece of an old gold tone chain I found in my stash around the tan card stock to mimic the chain on the watch. Added 3 black pearls to finish the card off.



  1. I think you nailed this one, Susan! Love that pocket watch stamp and your framing is awesome.
