While all the masculine things are out, I made another guy card...seem to be doing that a lot lately.

I started with manila card stock  and stamped with a wood grain stamp by All Night Media in Archival Ink.  Distressed with Ranger Distress Ink. Stamped Sentiment (Indadinkado Large Alphabet), clocks, filmstrip and Tim Holtz sentiment (Life's Possibilities, Lost and Found, and The Journey sets) with Archival Ink on background.  Outlined "Time" with Sharpie pen.  Stamped the finger on card stock, colored with  Ranger Distress Markers and cut out. Added tissue tape over filmstrip.

I die cut a gear, clock and alarm clock out of grunge paper--all from Tim Holtz. (Weathered Clock, Gadget Gears, and Vintage Alarm Clock Movers and Shapers).  Used copper Distress Paint Dabber (Ranger) on clock and silver on alarm clock. To get a rusted look I used Rusty Hinge DI followed by  Antique Linen Distress Embossing Powder (Ranger) on the gear. See my previous post for another "rusting" technique by Tim Holtz-his is much better, even though I had to modify it a bit.

I cut out a clock from Tim Holtz Paper stash-Lost and Found to fit the alarm clock, assembled the card, using a Tim Holtz clock and spinner with a brad on the gear.  Well, I'm out of "Time".

I'm entering this in the following challenges:
