Visible Image Stamps, Distress ink, Alcohol Inks, Indigo Blu Stamp, Tim Holtz, Papermania Stamp on a Man's card.

Hi there,

A quick share of a card I made for a friends Birthday.

I've had some metal sheets hanging around for ages, so I decided to use one. I randomly spotted some alcohol inks over the metal, left it to dry, then popped it into an embossing folder.

Next I looked through my vast supply of stamps and came up with the 
'Time after Time' set from 'Visible Image', 
I thought the sentiment fitted perfectly, I made a background with the numbers from the same set, and also used the pocket watch. 
I used some other stamps, cut out the images, and to finish off I added  bits and pieces from my stash.

Thanks for visiting, and please leave me a comment, I'd love to know what you think. 

Till next time, hugs, Pauline xxxx
