Birthday Time 04427
Today’s Technique Challenge on Splitcoast (TLC495) sounded really interesting…use a stencil and stamp thru it. Well…hmmm…I tried a bunch of my stencils, plastic & brass, but nothing really looked right or recognizable. And I was getting pretty frustrated. Yes, I know I have a low tolerance for irritation. Hubby’s response to my frequent “this is driving me crazy” is “Short Trip.” So I’m pretty sure my finished card wasn’t done exactly like directed, but I like it anyway. And it looks much better than my other attempts. So it is what it is.
Birthday Time cu 04425
As my last resort, I die cut a big circle and used it as a stencil (or mask, if you will) and stamped a couple of silhouette leaf images using the desert heat rainbow pad inside the circle. The die cut clock was added on top. I removed a few of the center parts of the clock because I liked it better w/o them. The little matching section on the left, was a leftover part when I die cut the circle behind the clock and I stamped the leaves again to match then attached it to a black rectangle. I also added another matching strip under the lower edge of the card front. A fishtail flag die was used on the greeting and a couple of Candi dots added in the upper right corner to balance things out. 

Thanks so much for stopping by!
