Sitting Pretty

When I read that the new challenge for February  over at Happy Daze was  Love,- 'A technique you love to use'. I didn't realise how difficult it would be to focus on one thing. So forgive me for letting a few favourites creep into this piece.

The first Stamping--stamps used Stampotique and  Studio 490.
Then came grunge ,- paint, distress and generally getting inky- I used a selection of inks and sprays for the clock dial.. The pocket watch is an Art Parts shape.
Last, the collage -with a quick trawl over the desk at the bits and bobs that might be useful, adding a couple of metal embellishments.

It is a dull winters day here in the U.K , so the photos were a problem, not as sharp as I would have liked.

The Stampman Challenge this time is 'Embellish It. So I will enter my Pocket watch here as well.

Thankyou for stopping by to take a look, I realy appreciate your comments.
