So, it was a no-brainer to use Tim's "Journey" stamp set, and pair it with this terrific paper bit I had left from a Graphic 45 pack! And one of the products I'd had for a long time, but never used was the idea-ology Mask image, Time Works. It worked SO well. I love the way they barely stick to your project, but manage to keep out all the spray mist. I chose the clock face image to add a little dimension to my pattern paper.
I also used a key and some hinges from Tim's Grungeboard, Elements. This stuff literally absorbs the ink so well, and in this case, the embossing ink. All I had to do was ink the pieces with Black pigment ink, apply the embossing ink, and clear powder. They now have the appearance of actual metal. I love it!
