Time Flies

The new Challenge theme over at Try it on Tuesdays  is 'Time Flies'.
This has to be one of my favourite themes, this time I decided to make a wall hanging.
Please pop over to see what we have all been making. and get all the details.
Our sponsor for February is  Real, Reasonable ribbons and there is a generous voucher for this months winner.

First of all the base boards were random stamped with various time related  and script stamps
The trusty Vintage photo distress ink shaded the bottom layer.
Next layer  was treated to a covering of Weathered wood distress ink,  then the corners and edges were roughly heat embossed using  an old gold embossing powder.
A piece of  cardboard passed through the crimper, then  given a light rug with metallic gold wax came next.
At last the addition of the Clock, a trusty well used Alterations die cut from black
 card,   this got the gold wax treatment as well.

The flowers are Sheena Douglas stamps, water coloured then fussy cut. All other additions came from my stash.

I will also link to the Cheerful Stamp Pad whose current challenge is 'Anything but a Card'.

Thank you for stopping by, I always appreciate your comments.
