CCC #21... past, present, future

{for my shining the light post, please scroll down}

hello there... i'm back!!   here with my card for this week's CASology challenge.  the cue word this week is time.   lots of different directions you can go in with this one.   our quest designer this week is the very talented N@.  All the details can be found here.




 


close up
i have to admit that when i saw the cue word my first thought was to use a clock.  but i don't have any clock images in my collection.  that left me with only one option... get outside my box and put my thinking cap on!   so i thought and thought some more... then i remembered that last week i had made a card for a splitcoaststampers challenge that used a lovely new stamp i had recently gotten from penny black.  the stamp is appropriately titled "time".   i had paired that stamp with another penny black stamp and used the emboss/resist technique for the card.  i decided to sort of recreate that card, but keeping this one more CAS than the other card.  i did this by stamping the sentiment in black ink, stamping the 2nd image over the top with versamark watermark ink, applied embossing powder and then heat set.  After that I applied Chipped Sapphire and Dusty Concord distress ink to the piece.  The final step was to die cut the image using a Spellbinders plain long rectangle die.  The finished piece was then adhered to the center of a white card base using foam dimensionals.   here is a close up shot of the sentiment... isn't it beautiful?  i just love so many of sentiments that you can get from penny black. 

thanks for stopping by....make sure you check out the cards from the rest of the design team: Melissa, Tracey, Jen, Ardyth and this week's guest designer, N@! can't wait to see what you come up with using this week's cue word!
