Verve Diva Dare is just that--a good challenge. I don't use a lot of kraft paper, as I'm not usually a big fan (too neutral, I think), but I pulled some out as the base of this card. I also don't think I have ever used paint on a card, but I pulled out some of those, too. It started out with the clock hands. I knew if I could pull off my vision with them, then the rest of the card would work. I die cut them out of a deep orange/coppery color then rubbed a metallic copper ink pad over them, then dipped my paint brush in side by side puddles of an apple green and turquoise and used them to dry brush across the hands. It gives such a beautiful verdigris look to them. I also did the same for the gold brad I used to adhere them to the card. For the back ground, I inked up the large clock face with the copper ink pad and then dry brushed the two paints right onto the stamp before I stamped it on the paper. Then I dry brushed some light brown onto the cardstock for a bit of distressing. (I think I need to work on that technique a bit!)
