Time Spirals Away Card

Hi Gals,
It's Karen here. I'm glad you stopped by for today's "Quick Idea."  I wanted to share a tip that has saved me many a heartbreak. After you've made a beautiful inked background, stamp your main design onto acetate using permanent ink. There is no chance of spoiling the background with a less than perfect image.
With rubber stamping, there really are no second chances. If you've ever dropped a stamp onto a project or become discouraged by your choice of placement, then this idea may help you. To avoid disappointment and frustration, I stamped the three clocks onto acetate and attached them with brads to the card. This method is much less stressful than DTP (direct to paper) and it also allowed me to try various positions before committing to the final placement. My lovely blue resist background with spirals became a finished card and not a tragedy of bad judgment or an "oops" moment.
