Alpha/dictionary challenge – letter C

Another catch up letter, C for clock.

I started out by making a texture plate for some gelli printing :

Therefore I embossed 4 pieces of cardstock 
with a clock embossing folder 
and glued them to another piece of cardstock.

Then came some experimenting on the gelli plate,
 while doing so I noticed 
what a FAB stamp the texture plate was. 

So I used my new homemade stamp with turquoise paint and the gelli plate as stamp pad on a golden background ( the gold to me represents the color of the mechanism of a clock), added the tag which was embossed with the same folder and colored with some walnut stain distress ink. The quote by Andy Skinner was added before embossing and fitted so well with the clock theme:
Wake your dreams

My husband likes this page a lot, so I made him a card/gift certificate in this style for our fifth wedding anniversary last week. The certificate is good for an original canvas by me :-)
