I like how these rubon clocks look, the bronze is very appealing. My biggest complaint is how hard they are to apply, it took a lot of rubbing to get them onto my layout. Make sure you slowly lift the top layer to double check that the rubon adhered. It took a good 3-4 very firm rubs to get this rubon to apply to the layout. I would still recommend them but just be cautious.
I had debated between these rub-ons and the ghost clocks for some time. I wanted to have some sort of clocks on heritage LO's and thought the rub-ons would be fun to use on different papers. When I got the package I was excited -- the copper is stunning and the clocks faces are exactly what I'm looking for. After choosing a nice piece of cardstock, I cut out the clock of my choice, placed it down on the cs, held it firmly in place and commenced rubbing... Only to watch the copper bunch up in spots; not stick in others; place flawlessly in other spots still! I thought it might be the texture of the cs so I tried another piece with the same result. DH (a man well versed in the delicate nature of some craft techniques) heard my frustration and thought he'd try himself. For a second it worked, then he got the exact same result. These rub-ons are a total mess! I was very disappointed and they are getting sent back ASAP!
