This is a birthday card I've made for a male relative which has a time theme. Over at Tuesday Taggers the current challenge is to create something with a 'Time' theme so my cards fits! This is the first time I've entered anything into their challenges as I'd always thought it had to be tags, but no, I believe it can be any project (I'm sure someone will put me right if I'm wrong!)
I used rubber stamps from Paperartsy's Clocks 3 set onto a background of distress inks and glimmer mist. The main background of the card is again distress inks with rubber stamping from Stampers Anonymous 'creative textures' set. The fine figure of a man deep in thought on the card you may recognise as Rodin's 'The Thinker'. I cut this out of a newspaper ages ago and it has the look of one of those photo stamps I think.
Whilst making the card I was reminded of the time when hubby and I had a weekend away in Paris about 12 years ago (yes, we were romantic then - LOL) and visited the Rodin Museum. John couldn't resist striking the pose - well he almost got it right!
