A Weathered Voyage

Tick Tock!  Time for another challenge at  Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge    and this week is about time. 

 I had just received the Wendy Vecchi Art Parts - Artful Shrine which inspired thoughts of a dome clock.

I started by applying Versamark Ink over the surfaces of the pieces and heat embossing with Aged Gold Embossing Enamel.  I also cut a coordinating circle frame from cardboard which recieved the same treatment. 

After everything was covered I inked up the woodgrain stamp with versamark. I then heated up the embossing enamel and pressed the stamp into the embossing enamel.  I repeated the process until all the surfaces were covered in textured gold.

I pop dotted the pieces together to create a layered effect.

I stamped the images using a mix of inks and cut out the pieces out to place along the bottom. I also created my clock face with numbers, clock hands and stamped the ship in the background.  Of course after I finished my clock face I realized I should have turned the numbers around on the bottom. :)
