A Half-sheet Collage Card

Shirley, aka Okieladybug, has started a daily FB card and layout challenge.  I'm sort of stuck on making collage cards these days so the first thing I imagined when I saw the card sketch was a clock face.

The clock face was cut from a DCWV stack named Tattered Time.  All the papers in this stack remind me of Steam Punk, which I admire but am clueless as to how anyone comes up with those things!

I used Graphically Speaking to cut the hands for the clock from shiny black paper and mounted them with a brad. I used George and Design Studio to cut a shiny black circle to mat the clock face.   The clock face is pop dotted onto the card for dimension.

Then I used several stamp sets and stamped some images onto the background.  The sentiment is also matted onto shiny black paper.

It's a rare occasion that I make anything other than A2 sized cards but this one just wouldn't have worked on one that small, so I made it a half-sheet card.

This is one collage card that I'm very pleased with!  And, I didn't scraplift this one! lol!
