Time in a Bottle - Grungy Monday

I don't always have time to play along with Linda's Grungy Monday Challenges, but when I saw this weeks challenge that uses this technique from 2008 by Tim Holtz, I knew it would be perfect to use with some of Our Daily Bread Designs new June Releases.

The Clock face is from the ODBD Time plate, don't you just love the vintage look!  I'm a Jim Croce Fan, so I was thrilled to see Save Time was one of the new sets in The Blessings Line of stamps.  I added some metal Idea-ology Gears and also some Tim Holtz Die Cut gears to embellish my card.  Makes for a great Masculine card - perfect for the hubby for FD, or an anniversary!

Wow, Lisa--

A Million Thank yous to you! First of all, this is such a great technique! And, I just learned that TH Distress Inks are embossable and that I can use it directly on a stamp, too?! his adds so many colors to my collection for coloring! Where have I been?! Is there a URL where TH lists several techniques, that you know of? I need more colors, that is for sure! Thank you so much for posting the link to that technique!

Now, about your card...I think it looks even better than his! I love that you added the metal gears, the way they pop off the card is amazing looking! Of course, the lyrics are a fabulous addition, I love this stamp, it is on my list. I love that song, too. I like the colors you chose very much...and what a great Anniversary or FD card you do have to give! What a fortunate guy!

If I miss your Anniversary...have a fabulous one! How Wonderful!

He IS Able,
Traci S.
