Create with your Soul...

Good morning everyone, hope you have all had a lovely week, hasn't it been gorgeous!  The week-end was a bit cool here in Yorkshire, and we had a flash of hailstone too!... but lovely all the same lol!!
 Being Tuesday it's time for another challenge over at 'Papertake Weely' and this week Dawny would like the main focus of the card to be Words... I've made a card from a beautiful stamp from a company called 'Visible Image' called 'Create with your Soul'.. I bought this last year and haven't had the opportunity to stamp it up.. so here goes! I wanted to try and make a vintage style card but it's turned out a bit steam punk!! I really enjoyed messing with all the inks, but would do a few things differently next time... I die cut the clock in craft card, then painted it with gesso, then added all different colours of Tim Holtz distress inks, it was a lot darker yesterday and the colours were better, so next time I think I will leave it to dry completely before assembling as I think it could have done with more colour on it, it looked a bit whitish the following morning!..  I also bought some fabulous wax gilt last week-end and I've put it on everything lol!! it does give a lovely finish!!
