A Crafty Individuals "Vintage" card!

Now browsing online the other day, I came across the clockface used in my previous card, and this how could I resist a stamp with my very own name on it. I have dithered over getting for aaaaages!

Really quite quick and simple to make up as I stamped onto a cream card that I had inked and glimmered up at Christmas!! Nice to make use of it at long last. I bodged a bit of a frame with the a few various Nesties then attacked it all with my sewing machine again, seeing as I had threaded it all up with black cotton!

Now, do you recognise the little frame I have made and layered on? Take a closer look.

When making my previous card, I stamped up several clockfaces onto a grungy green paper but then decided I would try stamping the face onto my inky cream card and overlaying it onto the green. One of the circular Nesties fits the clockface perfectly leaving me with all the text surrounding the clock "spare." Now waste not, want not....I made up a little frame. Quite pleased with the result but confess I hate the fact the main image is printed in black and the text on the frame is brown...shame on me!

RIGHT, waffle over. This card was inspired by the latest "Off Centre" challenge over on Scrapbook Sisters!

Oh I have missed crafting more than I realised!
