Time on my Hands

This 7"x7" piece is presented for 2 challenges - TGIF, hands, and ABC Challenge, B for blue and brown. Early ideas for the "hands" challenge were already used by a couple of other people (note to self - get going more quickly or change your time zone!!! LOL), so I had to think again. Hands on clocks seemed to fit the bill, so here they are....

Most of the stamped images are from the UMount plate, time, plus a dandelion-lookalike-agapanthus by Stampendous, and a couple from the set Avante Garde, by Stamp in the Hand. I did something for the background that I have never managed before - I used My Craft Studio to import some images from Google, then manipulated them until I was happy. I ran the card through the printer, and printed directly on to it. The stamping was mostly done straight on top, and embossed with clear ep. The whole clock was given new hands + hands and the little clock was perched on to the new minute hand... Daft but "cute" - well, as cute as I ever do!!!!
