Gobby Lin Rocks!

Hi Everyone

This week at Stampotique is Fancy Folds.  I have made a 'rocking card' with 'Gobby Lin' and tried to keep it simple.  This week I don't know how I came to do this card - it just evolved - you know what I mean!

I firstly cut the card base out then ran it through my E Bosser with a time piece embossing folder.  I then went over the top of the raised embossing with old paper and walnut stain distress inks.

I then stamped out 'gobby' 4 times and coloured him in with Promarkers.  Two of the persons I cut the legs off (sorry!) and attached together with a brad giving the effect of hands on a clock.

The other 2 'gobby's' I placed on each side of the clock.  If you notice one of the 'gobbys' is the other way around.  I did this by getting my brayer, inking the stamp up with versafine, then rolling the brayer over the stamp.  I then rolled out the image from the brayer onto the cardstock. Voila - a mirror image of your stamp!

Hope you have a great week
