Passing of Time

We have another beautiful card made by Sara today using dies cuts and gilding wax.
For the background Sara as used medical gauze that she coloured with distress ink refills and pulled threads of it to give a frayed look.
Tim Holtz gear head dies are used to die cut cogs from a large piece of black card that is cut slightly smaller than card base.
The cogs have had gilding wax put on them and then put back in black card.
Text paper was used behind black card so that it shows through cogs.
Sara has then die cut the large corner group of cogs and some leaves and flowers out of black card.
The flowers are made from the dies cuts and all pieces have had gilding wax used on them.
The following products are used-
Tim Holtz - gearhead dies
sizzix bigz die - tattered florals
sizzix bigz die - tattered pinecone
Sue Wilson - faux quilled leaves

Disco Fever

Sara (Inky Fingers) has made this fabulous card by using the Sue Wilson arched window/door die and turning it into a juke box.  Talk about thinking outside the box!
It really shows that we can use dies in others ways if we look carefully, I would never have thought of using it as a juke box but it works brilliantly.
The records have been made using various circle dies and a personalized record sleeve finishes it perfectly.
The wavy triple border gems looks great teamed with the notes die cut from a Marianne Designs die called musical notes.
