Smile Time

Meet today's card.
Great to use as a masculine card and super simple to create.

I began by placing the clock face stencil by Tim Holtz onto a piece of white cardstock and rubbed on Peeled Paint Distress ink.  I wanted to add more depth and interest to the clock faces to make them stand out more so leaving the stencil in place, I stenciled over just the faces with a piece of drywall tape and Faded Jeans Distress ink.
I placed the Smile sentiment from Impression Obsession inside my Misti, then stamped using Memento ink.  
I like when a card comes together so simply and quick.

  1. These clock faces inked in just the one colour look simple but effective Karen and the drywall tape stencilling in just the areas of the clock faces add that extra bit of interest and love that large sentiment to finish. A wonderful card. x
