Bob's Birthday

I didn't do much stamping yesterday. My daughter-in-law came over to make a Father's Day card for my son, and I was acting as coach. But I did have time to get one card done -- a birthday card for my brother-in-law.

When I saw this new set from Gina K. Designs, which actually has two clocks in it, I knew I had to have it. I just love this grandfather clock. It's stamped on white and sponged in Creamy Caramel. The image is colored with Prismacolor and Copic markers. Most of my alcohol markers are Prismacolor, but I am accumulating a nice collection of Copics, too. The clock works are colored with a gold marker; but, after I colored the face, the numbers were hard to see. So I stamped the top of the clock again on a piece of gold cs and punched it out with a 5/8 inch round punch. The bg paper is from a pad of Martha Stewart DP which I found on clearance, and I thought the eyelets and twine were all the embellishment needed.
