I made a pocket watch anniversary card for my husband using a quote from I Corinthians that we used in our wedding ceremony program.
To make the clock, I used the pocket watch die from Tim Holtz using paper from Melissa Frances. I cut out an extra die and cut off the top - the part that would be attached to the fastener. I painted it in Antiqued Bronze Distress Paint and then I added just a tiny bit of Ranger Alcohol Ink in Latte. Adding the alcohol ink made the piece less shiny and more antique looking with the two tones. I attached the Idea-ology Swivel Clasp Fastener which I also dabbed with Antiqued Bronze Distress Paint.
I love butterflies so I added one using a stamp from Cavallini & Co.and dusted on some Perfect Pearls to give it that subtle sparkle. Blue Raspberry Perfect Pearls - kind of loses the romance of the whole piece :) I used the Frayed Burlap and Antique Linen Distress Ink Pad to antique the edges. The seam binding is painted with Weathered Wood Distress Ink Reinker - my new favorite color. Love the blue, gray hues. Lastly, I added a pin from a swap I was in and small key from Recollections.
