First attempt at card-making...

So well this is my very first attempt at card-making of such sorts. I mixed decoupage technique with watercolours for the background of this card. Utilised a gorgeous washi tape I had with a couple of stamps (watch plus veil).
For the watch, I did not try to get a perfect imprint of the stamp. I wanted an uneven, broken, stamp effect. I think that looks really kewl sometimes. The top watch is dark and bold, while the bottom one is kind of like an after-effect of the top. Also, I have stamped the watch in bits all over the card to maintain the theme.



Lastly, I painted a golden border to accentuate the central themes further more.
