Thanks to Val, Cindy and Julie for some awesome ideas I incorporated in to this card. The dictionary background was inspired by Val and Cindy.
The clock is duct tape I have had sitting around since seeing a Tim Holtz special and hadn't used - Julie inspired me to get it out and use it!!! Yeh - I know the hands and time are backwards, but I just loved the effect. It is distressed with Pumpkin and Black Staz-on - this helps the "image" pop. I leave the backing on to help the image stay in place because this tape is so maleable. The metal on the left is just a paper clasp that I stamped on with Staz-on and also distressed with both colors of Staz-on. In my excitement to get it done I rubbed the time image and so it disappeared some. Lesson learned - let it dry first. The gingham ribbon was just rubbed over the artichoke pad to color it.
