Here are a few more cards inspired by the super-cool typewriter from the Tuesday Trigger.
I know, there are no typewriters to be found on these cards. The inspiration is from the colored keys. I was thinking, "what part of an image do I have that is always, without a second thought, colored black so I can substitute colors?" Numbers on a traditional pocket watch!
I carefully inked each number with an ink pad, except I was able to use a stamp marker for the yellow numbers. Then die cut a thick acrylic circle (from Cricut Cartridge packaging) to put on top of the clock face. I wanted something with a shine, and initially used dimensional glaze. Yuck!! It turned the colored numbers into a soupy mess. I'm embarrassed to even show a picture of that.
This card is for our dear niece, so I put a gem brad in the middle, and used the fancy watch hands. Notice they are pointing to 7:00 ... she's turning 7. Of course you could do this for any age, up to 12 years old.
This card is for our handsome nephew. Also turning 7 years old. Instead of messing around with the numbers which are supposed to be black, I took what is supposed to be white, and added color to that.
The normally white watch face has ink sponged around in a circle like the tie dye technique that was featured at PTI Stamp-A-Faire. Since this is for our nephew, I didn't want to use the fancy watch hands, so I drew plain, straight ones. A screw brad holds everything down in the middle.
Thanks for looking!
