Tick Tock Kitties

Josette here with my Tuesday installment.  Sometimes, you just don't know what to make.  I was playing with my piccolo's and embossing them with different powders, when I thought about time and cats looking at the moon.  Not sure why I thought of that, but my blog is about little bits of inspiration, so this is a good example.
So here it is.  Cute, maybe but interesting yes.   This is a very simple card, A2 in size.  Primarily made with piccalos that have been embossed with different powders, mounted on dimensional and those cute cats colored with Copics.  A couple of ribbons, voila!! a Card.

So, let me tell you about the design and what techniques I used as there are some hidden treasures here.  The first one is the background paper.    I started with an embossing folder and waxed paper.  Then I ran two pieces of card stock with the wax paper in the middle through my MINC and inked it with Distress Inks and a dauber.  If you visit my Blog: Wax Paper Technique, I discuss the whole process with up close photos.

Next I embossed  the Piccolos: Vintage Clock with various powders.  The Frame: REAL_RUST
The Clock and Swirls: VINTAGE_GOLD.  These are all popped up on using dimensionals.  The stamp set is: What's new Pussycat?  It's a party time is from an unknown source that was embossed in gold.  Matt is a brown card base and a bronze and Rust colored ribbon completes the pictures.

Well that is all for today,
Stop back next week for more MINC techniques using Sweet Stamp products.

Happy Crafting,
Josette

Awesome design, I love the enameled piccolo pieces with the 2 cats, looks like they're watching time pass. Wonderful background piece too.
