This week's Ways to Use It challenge is called "Be Timely" - use a calendar or clock.
So I chose this collage stamp which has three clocks on it (not sure what clocks have to do with butterflies but I like the stamp!). I stamped it in black ink and then sponged with two shades of blue (highlighting the clocks with the darker blue) and a yellow to highlight the butterflies. I did the same with a sentiment that fits the idea of time.
I'm experimenting with the different cardstocks I have to see what works best for brayering and stamping. Here I used the Gina K white layering weight cardstock for the stamped parts - it responds very nicely to being sponged with Distress inks.
