PTI 6th Anniversary: Watercolor Challenge (card #8 & final)

This is my Father-in-law's birthday card. He's turning 61, so I put the clock's hour hand on the six and the minute hand on the one. Bet no one notices but me. ;) I was going for an aged look since my FIL loves antiques, (not because I'm trying to make him feel old) and has his great granddaddy's pocket watch on display in his home. It's one of his favorite possessions. I added to the look by scratching the edges of the watercolor paper with my scissors after it was dry. He is a little rough around the edges after all. Aren't all good old TX boys? Lol!

Cardstock: PTI Ripe Avocado, cream watercolor paper
Stamps: PTI Think Big Favorites #12, Studio 112 pocket watch (found in the $1 bin at JoAnn's)
Bling: brushed brass brads, DaVinci Watercolors, corner chomper
Ink: Versafine Onyx


  1. This is one of my FAVORITES. Love it!!

  2. An awesome card for a gentleman and I am sure your father-in-law will love it. The watercoloring really adds a timeless (ha! very cheesy I know) appeal.
