Sense of Time

When I first viewed the "Game Spinner Hands" in the "Occasions Mini Catalog" I instantly knew what I wanted to use them for. The stamp set "Sense of Time" is a very vintage-y looking stamp set and I actually stamped the clock image minus the stamped hands and added my own. I think these "Game Spinner Hands" are adorable even though they are sold to go with a coordinating stamp set:

In order to "not" stamp a part of a stamped image, you first use masking tape and cover the part that you don't want inked. Once that is completed, ink your stamp, remove the masking tape and stamp the image. Works perfectly each time. I learned this a long, long time ago when I first started stamping.

All elements are sponged on the edges and I also dirtied some of them by sponging in different areas of each cardstock layer. I also added splattered ink by using my "Color Spritzer Tool" and "Stampin' Write Markers":
