The Time Keeper


This time keeper sure looks all fingers and thumbs, think he obviously needs a good wind up, or the bird will  loose its call up 'cheep'
I have added a tag to this hanging for the moment as I cannot remember where I put my magnetic tape to make it into a fridge magnet.
I used  Paper Artsy and Tim Holtz stamps on the background.  The main pieces are Wendy Vecchi  Art Parts.I covered the man with a page from a French book, the hand is stamped with script, then the key was covered with vintage photo distressed embossing powder. All the shading has been done with distress inks, black soot vintage photo and antique linen.
Challenges I think fit this piece are
Simon Says Stamp and Show  -'Men Only'.
Make My Monday- Steampunk, 'Anything but a Card'.
Just for Fun  a shape with More than Four Sides.

Thankyou for stopping by to take a look, I realy appreciate you calling.
