Time Flies

I made this card for entering in to the January Clarity Blog challenge....Things with Wings.

The background of the card is made with the cog stencil brushed through with caramel adirondack, outlined each section with antique linen. Next I stamped the wrought iron Tailors Dummy, masked it off and then inked the wings of the Blue Tit in full flight . Each wing was inked separately and placed either side of the bodice. I then used spectrum noire pencils and added colour, fussy cut the whole thing out I then die cut some cogs, clock face and clock hand s in gold mirri card and glued them to the background and using a brad put the clock hands on. Finally I stamped the small watch,coloured those in to match and glossy accented the faces. The dummy and watch faces were stuck on with foam pads. Finally I layered the finished piece on chocolate card.

Great fun to make - hope you like it!
