Sense Of Time

This is another card using an idea from Julia Dunnit's Grunge workshop at Kraft Crazy and I've followed the sketch at Seize The Birthday

 I've used a page from an old book and put it through the Bug with a cogs embossing folder. I've then highlighted the embossing with Tumbled Glass distress ink and the edges of the page with Broken China. I've then gone over the edges with some turquoise Perfect Perarls. A final touch is a spray and flick with some Rich Gold Cosmic Shimmer Mist. The clock is from a set by Stampin Up called A Sense Of Time and I've stamped it with Broken China. I've then used a cracked glass mask over it with versamark and used some pearl Perfect Pearls although it doesn't show up in the picture. I've cut it out with the large Spellbinders Cogs die and added some gold foil touches. The sentiment is from the same stamp set again stamped in Broken China. I've used the smaller cog dies on scraps of various gold mirror card then sanded them to take off the brightness. These have been placed across the card and the centres of one of the smallest cogs have been placed in the four corners

I'm entering this into the following challenges:
Seize The Birthday - Sketch & Masculine
Anything Goes - Make It Manly
CRAFT - Use Embossing
Quirky Crafts - Make It Messy

You can just see the pearl through the cracked glass mask on this close up
