Get Well Card

Well last night I had some inspiration for the Get Well card that I needed to make. As it was for a male friend I didn't want anything cute or slushy!!  I decided that I could use my pocket watch stamp that I bought from the US and I had some backing paper with watches on so I changed the colour to a sepia shade and made the stamp the same sort of colour to give it a vintage feel.  I then had some paper that I got free somewhere on the net with some french text on the back of a postcard.  I then scuffed up the edges of the pocket watch and the sentiment (printed in a brown colour on cream card) and used Distress Ink - tea dye and crushed olive on them to give an old look.  I did the same with the backing paper as it was alittle to brown and fresh looking!!!!

I made up a sentiment to do with time to go with the watch theme!

I'm really pleased with the result - it's the first time I have used the Tim Holtz scuffer tool.
