This week, Joanne Grzelak challenged the CCEE Stampers to celebrate a little known holiday, Punch the Clock Day (Jan 27), by creating a masculine card with some connection to time or clocks. How interesting! For sure, I've never heard of that holiday. But, I had a timepiece stamp I had never used so away I went creating.
This card will be for my oldest son and the time on the clock is when he was born...2:39 a.m. It was nice that the hands of the clock were separate so I could stamp it wherever I wanted.
As you can see, I did a lot of distressing..a lot. :-) The bronze colored paper is a pad from Hobby Lobby. I ran it through a Cuttlebug embossing folder/Herringbone. I used a Tim Holtz Distress Ink pad/tea dye to run over it after I ran it through the Cuttlebug. When I took a photo, the clock turned more copper (a lot more). Ugh! Well, I do love copper, though.
The rim of the clock was colored with Copic Lionet Gold, Y-28. I crackled the face of the clock with Inkssentials Crackle Accents and Ranger Distress Crackle. Added the corners and a sentiment...all done!
