Card - Time Flies

I bought this Tim Holtz Picture Wheel die a while ago with the idea of being able to turn it into a clock when I wanted. Today was the day.  I cut the Picture Wheel in turquoise card stock. I designed the clock graphic and printed it on vellum. I clear embossed the numbers when the printer ink was still wet.  I had to be really fast. I cut a 2 inch circle from the center of the vellum to put in the center on the turquoise piece.  I cut the clock hands with the Cricut and the Grahically Speaking cartridge big one at 4 inches and smaller one at 3.25 inches.  I adhered the turquoise to the vellum ensuring the numbers were aligned.  I selected a coral card. I printed one of my alcohol ink backgrounds from this session onto the front of the card to add a bit of texture. I rubbed the edges of the card with a turquoise ink pad. I adhered the clock face to the card. The vellum circle and the hands were added next with a tiny black brad. I cut the word TIME with the Stampin Up Little Letter thin lits in the turquoise card stock and flagged the right hand side. I then layered it onto black card stock and trimmed around it leaving a tiny border.  This was adhered to the left hand side near the card edge.  I added the word flies by hand by printing the word onto a piece of paper and then tracing it onto the card with a black pen and the help of a light table.  Super happy with the card.
