Anniversary Clock

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.

Little drops of water, little grains of sand,
Make the mighty ocean, and the pleasant land.
So the little minutes, humble though they be,
Make the mighty ages of eternity.
