This image from Gingerloft intrigued me, so I decided to work with it for this
Firstly I printed it off onto some XPress Blending card, and left it to set. I coloured it up using my Copic pens and die cut it using a Spellbinders die. Before I took it out of the die I sponged it with Momento ink (New Sprout). I did colour up the clock face that is under the chipboard piece, but decided not to use it when I found that this Heidi Snapp clock fitted it perfectly - another piece of old stash used! Yeah!
I knew I had a sentiment somewhere saying Tempus Fugit (time flies) - a freebie from Craft Stamper magazine - and another saying Carpe Diem (seize the day) - from Verve - so I spent some time searching through my index folders of stamps to locate them, and them stamped them up on a piece of scrap card. I stamped the watch in Momento London Fog randomly, and then the sentiments in SU Wasabi Green ink. I trimmed these and mounted them onto a scrap piece of green card. I have a huge stack of 12 x 12 card and papers - must use them up!
I used another piece of the scrap green card to die cut a Tim Holtz clock. I searched through the various paper pads I have acquired to find a suitable background paper and came across a Basic Grey - Lauderdale pad with some good ones. Mounted one small piece onto some more of the green card and then layered it all onto the green DP and some green Bazzil folded to create the base card.
I added a brad to the chipboard clock and some leaves got from Meg's Garden. I put a bit of bling in there too. Finally (several days later) I added the green flower. The photo below was taken in a duller light than the top one (which gives a better idea of the true colours).
Hope it tickles, as Claire says!
