Let's Hear it For The BOYS

Welcome to another challenge at THE CRAFTY PAD. I am amazed each and every week at the beautiful array of creations I am lucky enough to visit as I journey through Blogland, and last week was no exception! I do hope you can all join us again this week for our latest challenge #141 which is


The DT all used Debbie's fabulous Pocket Watch & Elements this week, (available from The Crafty Pad Designs,) and I am in awe of the DT creations...You simply MUST go and take a look, they're STUNNING! I admit that I struggled somewhat with this one, although I adore the images, I find the 'cute' images easier to work with....I admit that this is a style I really need to get better at!

Anyway, our fabby sponsor this week is Crafty Emma with a prize of £10 to spend in her online store (excl. P&P)
Here's my humble creation:

I created a montage of pocket watches and cogs as the main image, then printed directly onto the DP. All layers have had the edges distressed with a pair of scissors. I also created a border of cogs which I printed directly onto the DP and is on the LHS of my card. On the main image image I added extra pocket watches on foam pads and covered them with Anita's 3D glaze. I added a few card candy dots, and printed my sentiment directly onto the DP.

I am entering my card into the following challenges:
Thanks for stopping by, I do hope you manage to join us!
