Gorgonzola Art

Hello.  Welcome.  I missed joining the Happy Little Stampers ATC challenge last month due to incompetence, so I was waiting eagerly to see what the topic was this month.   They have chosen Shapes.  So I decided to start with circles. 

Here's the background I started with, chalk inks over a Stamplorations stencil, die cut with my Sizzix ATC die

I stamped the Unity sentiment with VersaMark and embossed with black powder.  Then I decided my ATC needed to look like a Swiss Cheese!!!!

I used a small Sizzix circle die to cut the centers out a number of circles.  Then I backed it with some scrunched up silver foil.  I am so using that idea again.  What yummy texture that is!

Then, in keeping with the time references in the sentiment, I added some vintage metal clock charms.  These are all from  I had 4 different clocks.  The two round ones fitted perfectly with my circle shape.  The cuckoo clock was too cute not to use and it's little dangles fitted perfectly into that semi circle cut at the bottom.  Then I added the wristwatch to balance it all up.  

Thanks for dropping by.  Hugz
