Hi there 🙂 I’ve really been trying to use images and stash that I’ve never used, or haven’t used for ages. I’m also trying to beef up my stash of masculine cards. Today’s card fits all these categories 🙂 I used a freebie from Beccy’s Place Pocket Watch and Handkerchief, that was featured all the way back in 2010!!!!!! I colored it up with my Copics, adding a few highlights with white Posca, then fussy cut it out.

I stenciled the background using distress inks, and bringing in the colors of the image. The Tim Holtz sentiment seemed to fit the theme so well, that I just had to use it. For the borders – you better be sitting down for this – are rub ons!! I don’t even remember when I’ve used these the last time!! I have quite the stash of them – not all of them in great shape (one of the joys of rub ons!) – that I’ve been hoarding for half a lifetime! I really do like the effect they lend to this card though 🙂

I’d like to enter this in the following:

  1. Fantastic card Susan, I love the way you’ve coloured the image. The addition of the white pen on the watch really gives it a beautiful, metallic shine. I also love the fabulous sentiment you added, it’s a perfect match!

  2. Your watch is colored so perfectly, and I never would have thought the border wasn’t stamped! Great card ! Thanks for sharing with us at the Paper Funday Challenge!
