GRANDMA'S CLOCK

Hi Creators!
 
Whilst at retreat a few weeks ago my Mother in Law kindly looked after my girls forme as my Hubby is still away working in far north Queensland, so to thank her I altered this clock that I found in a local nicnac shop and gave it to her.
 
 
How did I emboss a single piece of cardstock that big you ask??? Well here is my trick....
 
 
I spritzed my Core'dinations White Wash Cardstock with water put it in my Couture Creations Elegance Emboss Folder (cheerful) and with some pressure rolled it with the rolling pin I use for cake decorating! This take a fair bit of pressure but the wet cardstock seems to work a little better.
**TIP do not move your embossing folder until you have checked that you have applied enough pressure.
Then I just moved the embossing folder around the cardstock spritzing as I went. I allowed it to dry, sanded it with the Couture Creations Sanding Block (pink side) and applied it to my clock base, and embellished it with flowers and bunting! **HINT I had to slightly bend my clock hands upwards so they would move over the top of my flowers.
 
Keep on Creating!
