I recently purchased a set of stamps at a rummage sale at my local stamp store. Those stamps seemed perfect to use for some of the 2013 calendars I am in the process of creating.
All 4 stamps used on this and the next calendar shown came from that set.
I used spellbinders dies to cut out the sentiment and an additional layer of card stock to mount it on.
I used some sparkling embossing powder on the word 'Time' when I stamped it. And I used my gel glitter pen to highlight parts of the stamped clock in the lower left corner.
The sentiment I used is one of Tim Holtz's stamps. I love the sentiment and wanted to use some of my 'inspirational' type stamps on this year's batch of calendars.
I used my gel glitter pen again to highlight the hands on one of the embossed clocks.
I used the sponge applicator tool to add some shading to the sentiment after it was cut out with a spellbinders die.
And just as I had with my previous design... I created 4 calendars using one color (purple) and then created 4 more in a different color scheme... orange.
