1st Cards for the New Year


 Morning all,

I had hoped to get this post up a couple of days ago, but it appears that my techno issues of 2012 are more than slightly hanging over to 2013...this time it is in Blogger....so I am now on a very different and unfamiliar server!!

I have a glut of male birthdays in January, so with this in mind I decided to bolster my male stash. In my blog travels, I saw this magnificent trio. I was hooked and knew I had to give it a go and CASE them....but starting off one at a time.

This is my effort.....


I did not have some of the product they used, so I winged it. Warning...if you wish to CASE this card...there are 17 individual pieces and each has to be sponged too...well at least I did anyhow. Here they are close up... (you can click on the image to make larger if you wish)



 

The background is collaged and then the edge sponged. all the clock components are stuck together and then popped up on dimensionals.

 




I did change the colours for one of the cards, making it Night of Navy instead of Not Quite Navy.

Thanks for popping by today. I hope you all had a magical New Year and I will be back soon with the last of my Christmas cards.
