Hello! I have just a very simple masculine card to show you today. I recently purchased this Inkadinkado 'Pocket Watch' stamps on accident. I thought it was a clearance stamp and I didn't realize I paid the regular sale price till it was too late. I decided to keep it rather than go through the hassle of a return because I figured it would make a really quick and easy masculine card; and it did!
My first dilemma in using this stamp was how in the world do I color it? I mean, pocket watches are usually silver or gold, and the clock face either white or off white. Now I could have mimicked the look, but I felt it would be too much work and probably never look like I wanted it to anyway. So I decided to not color the watch and just stamp it on a piece of designer paper from DCWV 'Tattered Time'. From there, I just added a sentiment from a retired Stampin Up! set called 'A Little Birdie Told Me' and adhered it to a Chocolate Chip panel, and a Kraft card base. That was it. I thought of adding either a string, or some brads, but I didn't. I liked it just as it was, and I figured, whatever guy I sent it to would prefer it unembellished as well.
What a great idea to stamp it directly on the designer paper. The card looks fantastic!ReplyDelete
