Any time at all? SS Challenge 96

Hels has created another stunning piece of art for her Sunday Stampers challenge today, catch it here. Wow.  I have lots of the same stamps she has, so wanted to make sure I used something that was going to be different and with my new found (not well honed yet) digital camera skills, I have done this tag on Maya Road chip tag (sure that's not what they're called!)

I used various Paperartsy "ding and dong" stamps on a variety of surfaces - the gorgeous new bronzed gold (for the bird), copper (clocks) and the back of a piece of textured cream card (winged clock)

I painted the tag with traditional tan paint, made a tape sandwich for the bird and scooched a small wheel over his (her?) wings and spritzed with some perfect pearl/DI reinker mix.

I found an unopened (still on the backing card!) Sepia Accents which I used for the wings and the small clock face. Before I stuck the winged clock to the chip, I spritzed the whole thing with glimmer mist (honey amber)

Now lets see if any of the close up shots are any good (just cos I can, lol!!)

You won't hear anything from me for a couple of hours at least cos Liverpool are playing Man U and it's on TV.  I've got the lucky t shirt on (the Istanbul one which won't mean a thing unless you know!!)
