One layer birthday card

This week's challenge on Less is More is to make a one layer masculine card.  At one time this would have filled me with dread but now I quite enjoy making one layer cards. For this one, I masked off a panel and then inked this with distress inks before over stamping the watch image.

I am also going to enter this into the Inkspirational challenge #86 which is Grunge - I used earthy colours and I think the watch stamp is grungy!

Materials used:-
Mask - Creative Expressions watch
Stamp - Paperartsy clocks 3
Sentiment - Uniko Studio extra time
Distress inks - broken China and rusty hinge

Thanks for visiting my blog - now pop over to LIM and Inspirational to see what the other participants have created. Margaret

  6. This is wonderful and I've been wondering what to do with those watch stamps I have! I hope you don't mind that I plan to CASE this. I don't have a stencil of watches but I'll substitute something to make the panel. I also like the colors you've chosen.

  7. Wonderful technique and images and I love the colours.
    Thanks for sharing with us.
