Clock Face Square

Welcome back to Lost Coast Portal to Creativity where Lost Coast Designs and Carmen's Veranda collide to bring you twice the inspiration and double the fun!

Hello Portal Peeps!  Gail here today wih the last of the month!!   Doesn't February always seem to whiz by??  I'm here with the final inspiration post for our current challenge Hip to be Square.  The team have been using the lovely Carmen's Veranda Squares stamps the last two weeks.  If you haven't checked out their projects then please do scroll down and have a little lookie.  Today I've gone a bit arty and used Clock Face Square in a graphic style.
I kept to black and white with a hint of gold mirror card.
I started by stamping the Clock Face Square with black archival on white card and cutting around the edge.  I am also using a square white base card.
I placed my image on the card and drew some wiggly lines with a pencil.  
I ripped a piece of scrap paper and using Black Soot distress ink and a blending tool I made halfish of the white base black.  This took quite a bit of blending to get a good depth of colour.  Probably use a Promarker next time LOL.  
I cut a mm off the black edges of the Clock Face Square and mounted on a white card square to give me the white edging effect.  I stamped and black embossed the image on two gold mirror card sheets.  One is quite a yellow gold and the other one is a paler shade, I call that one white gold LOL.  I cut out the embossed bits of the clock and layered then on the image.  
I hope you have enjoyed my project today.  There is still time to join the Hip to be Square challenge with your stamped square makes, or stamped makes featuring square elements.  The linky closes at 5 minutes to midnight tonight!!  Join the fun for a chance to win Lost Coast dollars!
