Grungy Monday #13 The Journey


Linda from Studio L3 selected this week's video; http://www.rangerink.com/videos/videos_tim_alcoholinks.htm  for Grungy Monday #13.
For my GM-13 card I used two of Tim's stamps, his clock die, his distress ink, Ranger's archival black ink and Ranger's Alcohol inks.
The inside of the clock was alcohol inked and stamped with bird image.
The clock die was cut with a piece of heavy duty file folder. The file folder was so dense that I had to run the clock die through the Vagabond machine four times. Isn't the color on the clock gorgeous. You might not can tell but the die cut has a marble finish. All I did was add a little bit of distress ink to the edges using brushed corduroy. The clock hands were distress with the brushed corduroy as well.
I used 3-D Zots to apply the clock to the base of card. Finished card: 4 5/8" x 6"
My daughter has an antique shop in Arkansas City, KS; she deals in antiques and vintage. From a recent auction she gave me a bundle of heavy duty file folders to use with my die cuts.
 I'm a happy camper with all these new things to play with.
