CCM 222 Lots of Layers

Judy is hosting our challenge today at Crafty Cardmakers and she has chosen Lots of Layers as her theme.

222 Lots of Layers

My card was made on behalf of my Daughter for her Husband for his birthday.

My base layer and the blue diecuts are from some turquoise mirri card. The cogs and ornate scroll cog die are from Sue Wilson. The clock, which was cut from the same turquoise card and then had several different embossing powders added to it to give it an aged patina look, is a Marianne die. The hands and other of the cogs were cut from purple mirri card. The background paper is from a Prima pad, Epiphany. the brick cut out is from a Tim Holtz media die, and I backed it iwth more purple mirri. The sentiments are mainly Crafters Companion.

The image is from Kanban, and I coloured it with Kurecolor brush pens and then fussy cut it out and added it on foam tape.
