The MIM challenge at Papertrey Ink this week is to use a single stamp to create a multi-layer image. I had only one PTI stamp set that would work with this challenge. I used the small clock face from Hands of Time to create a spinner for my birthday card.
I started with a card front 4 1/4" x 5 1/2". Using some canned air against the tip of my copic (I don't have an air brush system) I spattered a bit of grey (copic W3) along the bottom and right side. I then spattered some blue ink onto the card front using reinker mixed with water in a mini mister (rather than spraying, I unscrewed the top and shook some ink from the siphon tube). I stamped some chevron images in yellow gold and grey. For my spinner I stamped the small clock face in black, yellow/gold and blue. I die cut the black and blue images with standard circle dies and hand cut the yellow image since none of my dies were quite the right size. I also die cut a lacy circle from blue cardstock to back all of the images and to provide an edge for spinning. I had a set of black epoxy numbers that fit perfectly into the open circles on the image. A simple brad in the center and you have a spinner. After adding the rest of my sentiments and banner I popped the whole card front up with 3D foam to allow the brad to spin freely.
When I was thinking about this card last night I had decided that I would attach the 1" blue horizontal striped piece to my card base, shorten the card front by 7/8" and pop the card front up over top for some nice dimension - as you can see, by the time I put my card together this morning I had forgotten that I wanted to do that - oh well, it looks alright this way as well.
I used Seize the Sketch#10 for my card design inspiration, although I did miss the deadline.
