PTI Make-It Monday ~ Layering Patterns Over Images

Good morning ~  I'm playing along with Dawn's Make-It Monday Challenge, Layering Patterns Over Images.
What a lovely technique! 

 I pulled out one of my old favorites Rosie Posie & Rosie Posie Step 2, which are now retired. 

 the sentiment is from Scripted and I used the same die cut from Sentiment Splits Curve Vertical Die that Dawn used on her lovely card.

 I admit I was a little afraid to stamp the Cover Up ~ Diamonds background stamp over the stamped images at first, but once it was done I loved the results.  Thanks Dawn for always inspiring us with your beautiful creations and ideas.

You can find all the details to join in on the fun here.

I also wanted to share a couple of pictures of an altered alarm clock I recently made using PTI products.
I picked up the clock at Goodwill.  After removing the inner parts and giving it a coat of spray paint, I created this little scene using elements from Winter Village and Cloche Quarters.
There are three layers creating this winter scene, using foam tape in between to give it depth.
I added some texture paste to the top and sprinkled some snow glitter on top while it was still wet.  
I hope you like it!

Thanks for stopping by!

Your card is FABULOUS Birgit! I love those Rosie Posie flowers and your colors are so bright and cheery!! And the diamond pattern over the top looks amazing...such a lovely, lovely card my friend! And the alarm clock is over the top FABULOUS!!! That is just the coolest idea and really makes me wish I had an old alarm clock sitting around! The little scene you created fits inside just perfectly and is going to look so wonderful with all your other Christmas decorations! GREAT idea!!!!!!! :0)

Birgit, the grid looks FABULOUS through those beautiful roses. I didn't know they retired Rosy Posie. It's alway been a favorite. And I have way too many PTI favorites! Let's just talk about that Christmas clock... WoW and WoW! Going back for another look, cuz there's so much charming sweetness there. Frosty but warm at the same time! LOVE!!!

At first I thought you'd stamped those darling blooms OVER patterned paper, which would be great, too. But, wow, you are brave, and it's absolutely beautiful, Birgit!
Your little Christmas clock is really adorable, too, my friend. What a fabulous idea for those sweet little bitty die-cuts!
