Start by gathering your stamps and ink pads. Used here is a lined index card as the lines add texture and age to the look.
Stamp using the "aged brown" coloured Distress inks with the wording and texture stamps from the Art Journaling Set. Use the sponge applicator to cover the unstamped areas with colour.
Use the paint brush to apply a thin layer of glycerine to the entire card. (Glycerin can be used for embossing - not my idea - I have been watching Youtube videos where people have been using it!)
Add the Vintage Beeswax powder to the entire card. Use your heat gun to "emboss".
Add some more glycerine to the edges of the card and apply the Patina Oxide enamel and emboss with the heat gun.
You now have a lovely shiny background and you can still see the background stamping through it plus a contrast colour to border the postcard.
Add some basic colour to the watch face using a cotton bud and distress ink. This is very easy to do - no colouring skills required - just add small amounts of colour to the cotton bud and rub onto the card to achieve a subtle effect.
Stamps the wings onto Linen cardstock with embossing ink and emboss with gold embossing powder. Fussy cut and separate the wings.
Finally stamp the "Time Flies" onto card with the Rich Cocoa ink. Cut the "Time Flies" words only and edge with Distress Ink.
Place the wording in the bottom corner.
