Birthday Time

Here is a simple, more masculine card I made to have on hand for some birthdays that are coming up.
Super simple but fun, playing with my Distress Inks.

I began with a piece of heavy white cardstock.  I rubbed some Peacock Feathers DOX and some Salty Ocean DOX inks directly onto my non-stick craft mat.  I sprayed with water and slapped my paper into the wet ink.  I like the way that technique leaves some of the white space behind.
When that was dry, I inked up the smaller clock face with some white acrylic paint and pressed over the inky bkg.  Be sure to wash you stamp immediately after when using paint so it doesn't stick and get hard in the grooves of your stamp.
Next, I stamped the big Tim Holtz clock then added the grid on the top and bottom to give more interest.
I placed the piece into my Misti to stamp the sentiment and then added some white dots with my Gel pen.
I mounted the piece onto some white cardstock, then pop dot mounted that over a plain white card base.

Thanks so much for coming by to take a look.
