Make Time to Read

A simple bookmark for a special man using Nina Brackett's "Special Fathers"...
Stamp the clock onto a strip of Pure Luxury White or Ivory CS, leaving room at the top so you can trim 1/8" around the clock top carefully. Layer onto a larger Chocolate Kiss rectangle (1/8" larger all around) and cut around the top again. The clock was colored with Copics and the edges were sponged with Antique Linen distressing ink. I added this little silver heart charm on a brad to decorate the top, the engraved silver adds a richness and vintage touch. (The charm is a little feminine maybe, but what grandfather wouldn't want to to reminded of the love of his grandkids? :) I also think adding an ornament and leaving off the long ribbon gives this bookmarker a more masculine feel.)

Have a great day!

Your coloring is so gorgeous! Honestly, my dad and my father-in-law would not like the heart charm. ;-) (my granddad would have thought it was sweet though)

Wonderful card. You did a great job with the coloring and with the cutting. Did you use a special tool to make sure that the top of the clock came out correctly on your layers?
