Greatest Dad of All Time

Well finally here is my Dad's Father's Day card. I was pushing the time limit on this one a little bit. He actually gets more excited about the card than the present. Normally because I usually write a poem. Ok back to the actual card. I stamped the diamond background first and then stamped the clock over it. I decided to ink the edges only after a big blob of brown ink got on the bottom of the clock (and as you know every "mess up" is an embellishment opportunity of some sort). So I ended up inking up the rest of it to match and then inked the edges. Voila the mishap is taken care of with no one the wiser. hee hee. I actually cut the darker green square first so I could properly place the other clock stamp on the sides. The two little clocks up at the top are from Spare Parts that I had left over from another project. I also added some green ink to the sentiment to tone down the white. This was also this week's sketch challenge at SCS.

Size: 5 x 7; Stamps: Stamp Camp, Cornish Heritage Farms; Ink: Memories Soft Leaf; Tim Holtz Walnut Stain, Tea Dye; Paper: My Mind's Eye; Accessories: Buttons, Spare Parts Clock Faces
