Time, the great equalizer


Our pastor has made the comment before that time is the great equalizer and it is so true. It doesn't matter who you are or your circumstances, everyone only has 24 hours in a day. The background of this ATC starts with and old calendar page glued to cardstock. Over it I sponged distress inks and used a Tim Holtz mask. All stamps are Tim Holtz. "the great equalizer" is computer generated. Ideology spinners added to the clock image. The edges have some gold Smooch on them and then are sponged with black soot distress ink. I also added some dots of gold Smooch around the clock. Lastly I rubbed some marmalade distress stickles in a couple of places.

hello Wanda,

nice card : I like your starting point with the calender page as a background. The mask works well too: you even hardly can see it's a spinner, but that detail is just good. All the other stamps match perfect with the background.

Sometimes I do regret that I only have 24 hours a day, but I guess days would always be too short whatever hours are in a day...

greetings from Belgium
