Time is precious...

Do you like to stamp? Then head over to Fashionable Stamping Challenges & join in their latest challenge - Time Waits For No Man.

I used the back of a Studio 71 wood wall panel instead of the flat front. I picked a page from Kaisercraft's Barber Shoppe collection and cut the inside piece which left the part that went around the frame. I love the offset look of it. 

My main focus is the vellum piece. I made my own vellum using a regular piece of printer paper & oil. I then did a mask stamping of my gentleman with the train behind him. I distressed the edges, added some gold rub 'n buff, and stamped a pocket watch that I inked up with both gold & black. This home-made vellum takes a stamp BEAUTIFULLY! 

I added a time sentiment which I partially covered with the vellum for interest. 

I added rub 'n buff around all the edges & dyed Sari ribbon around the outside. 

In the top corner, I fussy cut a watch & added rub 'n buff around it & a chain. 

Overall, it's a great piece for the man in your life. And the vellum is really awesome to work with, allowing the time pieces & other designs to show through. I really loved creating around this theme!
