Papertrey Ink January Blog Hop

This month's Papertrey blog hop is all about black backgrounds! Now normally, black is probably my least favorite color. But lately with all the "chalkboard" backgrounds being so popular, I have been liking it more and more! Add to that the fantastic inspiration photos and card examples that Nichole has shared and I was really excited to actually try and use black for my card today! I got my order yesterday afternoon and quickly got to work so I could use my new stamps for today's hop! I used Hands of Time along with the dies and the Number Time Trio. I actually started with WHITE cardstock and embossed the clock with white embossing powder. Then I used an ink blending tool and rubbed on some Simply Chartruse ink in the center and Classic Kraft on the rest of the face. Then I inked the rest with Black. I also dyed the clock hands with ink and added a little jewel for the center. I stamped the numbers in Classic Kraft. I stamped the sentiment and overstamped it with another clock face and cut it out with a Spellbinder's circle Die. I added the card front to a Kraft card base and rounded the bottom corners. And here it is! (Click on it to if you want to see it larger!)
Thanks for stopping by and happy stamping to you!
