FEB Dusty Attic Sketch (and Prima PPP)

The large Dusty Attic skeleton clock face (DA0430) is my all-time favourite chipboard piece and I never tire of finding ways to use it. I paired the gorgeous clock with a word "eternally" from the word pack #2 (DA0476) and lots of pretty Prima papers and flowers (using the Prima PPP as inspiration). The picture was taken 12 years ago on my wedding day - seems like yesterday!

I used the gorgeous sketch created by Nadia - one of our incredibly talented Dusty DT members!

Here is a close-up of the clock finish.

EASY DISTRESSED LOOK TIP:
Using Ranger Distress ink in "pumice", I randomly pressed the ink pad onto the clock leaving some bare chipboard exposed (and then let it soak in and dry completely).

Next, I used Ranger Distress ink in "black soot" and did the same as above - very randomly. It is THAT EASY! I have tried using other inks (like chalk ink) but cannot achieve the same look... they just all blend together and look bland.

Here is the beautiful Prima PPP palette for February.
