Friday Flashback: Clockworks

Howdy, kids.  Today's Friday Flashback is even more time-oriented than usual because the stamp set is Clockworks!  So let's flash back.

I made this for one of those super-annoying no-color "color" challenges.  I like colors.  Lots of colors.  Not just neutral blahs.

I think this one is my favorite; I used the long-retired Brushed Copper cardstock and copper brads to make this one.  So that's it for the archives, here is today's new creation:

The main character in Doctor Who is an alien called a Time Lord, so I figured there was never a more appropriate time (teehee) to use Clockworks.  I convinced the hubs to take me to the Doctor Who Experience in Cardiff when we were in Wales in 2014, even though he thinks that Doctor Who is the weirdest show ever put on television.

After I stamped all the pocket watches and gears, I realized that I had lined up the numbers so the I is at the top of the clock face instead of the XII.*  #DUH.  I'm just going to pretend that's what a Time Lord's watch looks like.  Oh, for the DW logo, I just Googled for an image of it and printed out one that was line art, then I stuck it on top of Very Vanilla cardstock with removable adhesive and cut it out with scissors.  It's a little crooked but hey, handmade.

*I just looked back through the cards and I did the same thing on Card #3.  #DoubleDuh.

Today's color palette:  Very Vanilla, Brilliant Blue (for the TARDIS, naturally), Early Espresso, Baked Brown Sugar, and a fair bit of embossed copper.  All the watches and some of the gears are copper EP, which I still have from the last time SU! sold it so hey, I'm one up on the trend.

Okay kids, time for me to go back down to the basement.  Got some projects I need to work on.  Have a great weekend!

Hi Christy, I love color too. Almost all your cards have vibrant colors but a neutral card is always good to have on hand! I've enjoyed looking at the scrapbook pages as you post them. You are sooooo creative!
