Time for Spring with Cheery Lynn Designs

Happy Monday to you!  It's my day over on the Cheery Lynn Designs blog to share a project.

This weekend was a big step forward in the direction of Spring for us here in the United States. We observed Daylight Savings Time where some of us move our clocks forward an hour and gain a bit more sunshine in the later part of our day.

In honor of this event, today's project theme is… time!

You can see the de-bossed background kraft paper that I used a bit of pink ink on. To achieve the effect, I simply rubbed my pink chalk ink lightly onto the raised metal embossing plate, then embossed per usual. (Be careful not to press down or you'll have more smudge marks than you might want.) 

The effect was a subtle pattern with a hint of color.

I've layered our Pocket Watch with the Ship's Compass, then added the Sentiments Frame #2 on top of those. I did trim off the directional stations from the compass, and kept the flourish to use under the 12. The relief hearts from the Frills and Hearts Border and the clock hands from the Pocket Watch were re-purposed as random embellishments to add a touch of whimsy.
