Martin Luther King

January 23 - 29

Photo Inspiration based on this famous photo:

I couldn't seem to make up my mind what I wanted to do, based on this photo. There were so many different directions to go.

Here were some of my thoughts:

Martin Luther King was instrumental in bringing black and white together - so a black and white card seemed appropriate.

Martin Luther King was a great orator - so a card with a great sentiment/quote seemed appropriate.

Martin Luther King had a dream that was before his time - so a clock/time themed card seemed appropriate.

Based on those thoughts, here's my card:

If you're curious, yes, the hand on the clock is a real hand from a real clock. Pretty cool, isn't it? I attached it with a large brad. (Unfortunately, I only had one hand, so there isn't a second one on the card.)

Image & Sentiment: Stampin' UP! It's About Time
Ink: Versafine Onyx Black
Cardstock: Stampin' UP! Basic Black and Whisper White
Designer Paper: from my scrap file
Embellishments: Stampin' UP! Black Organdy Ribbon, a clock hand, and a large brad
