Special Time Valentines

   I call this 'Old School' because if you've been crafting long enough you probably have some sort of stencils like these that you used to trace with pencil and cut out.  What's old is new again with all the cool stencils for adding pattern and layering images now!  I wanted to be able to place the shape on this stamped cardstock I made with the clock image from the new Special Time clear set from Hero Arts!
   After being woefully behind for the last holidays, I am ahead of Valentine's Day with my special cards completed this afternoon!  and they are entered in the new Hero Arts Blog contest for this month to boot!  Check it out HERE!
   
   I usually don't do pastel colors, but I liked the way some repetitive stamping of the sentiment and the clock blended to make a nice background to place my hearts.  I love the font of the sentiments in this set, and I can see how versatile it's going to be for lots of occasions!  I had fun playing this afternoon, and even re-discovered my marker sprayer to make the splotches on the background.  Nice to be cleaning and organizing!  
   Hope you have some Special Time to play today!
