Let's Ink It Up Challenge #14 Embellishments

We are back from our two week vacation at Anna Maria Island, Florida. The temperatures were from 85 to 93F most days, but not humid, as there is always a nice breeze blowing off the Gulf of Mexico. Hubby and I had our long beach walk most mornings followed by a swim. Then some beach time in the afternoon with two or three swims as the sun was so hot. Our friends from Sweden and Ohio were there again this year, and we had lots of laughs with them!

Let's Ink It Up Challenge #14 is Embellishments. Remember... NO DIGIS are allowed. We want to see stamping! The sponsor is Annabelle Stamps who is donating a $20 Gift Voucher. Here is the store-

Well as promised in my last post, here is my card for the challenge, although it is somewhat late...the challenge is almost over!

 I did a masculine, time themed card. Had very inky fingers after this project. LOL! For the background, I did sponging with Tim Holtz distress inks (Antique Linen, Tea Dye, Forest Moss and Shabby Shutters, and randomly stamped various clock stamps & and a flourish.Also distressed and inked the edge all around.

I did Tim Holtz' Rusted Grunge technique on the round chipboard frame,embossed a clock in black on the center circle,cut out the clock hands with my Cricut. The banner triangles, mounted on a thin brown ribbon held with brads, are stamped with a woodgrain stamp, sponged with Tea Dye and Forest Moss, and the
alphabets are stamped with Pine Needles.  The little embellie at the top right corner is a clock stamp covered with Crystal Glaze, cut out and mounted under a Tim Holtz metal sprocket. The advertisement is from a sheet of specialty paper which I sponged Distress inks to age it further. For the tag, I embossed the verse in black detail EP, and sponged Forest Moss around the edge. May Arts ribbon.
