"Love, Cherish, Adore" by Vicky Alberto

Vicky blogging today to share a project I did using the very pretty March Dusty Attic sketch. I think one of my favourite chipboard items is the skeleton clock face set (DA0430). I have used them on several projects over the past few years and never tire of their classic look. I also used an entire pack of words (DA0025) - these were so fitting for the photo of my grandparents on their wedding day.
Sometimes almost bare chipboard really fits the look of your project. For the larger clock I simply gave it a grungy look by randomly adding some charcoal chalk ink. For the smaller clock I used the same ink but saturated it to give it more contrast against the clock that I fussy cut from paper - it was a perfect fit!
As for the words, I used amber Silks paint and then once again took the charcoal chalk ink to them to tone down the shimmer. Sometimes simple finishes are all your project demands. I find that ink goes a long way for heritage projects.
Here is the gorgeous Dusty Attic sketch by Mistra Hoolahan this month. Don't forget to enter our challenge each month for a chance to win a prize pack. visit the Dusty Attic NING site for more details!
