I believe I saw a countdown calendar this morning that says only 16 more days until we feast...didn't want to know how many more days for the other holidays. Does time seem to fly faster as we get older or are we just busier?
For my background I chose to ink up a Cuttlebug embossing folder (Clockworks) and stamp it on the tag before applying various brown dye inks all over to age it. A copper marker was run around the edges. Next, the technique. Did you know Forest Moss Distress Ink and Mandarin (new color!) Perfect Pearls make copper? See for yourself. The clock tower is from the Pen and Pencil set.
Using Tim's Carnivale alpha strip I cut out the letters to spell time in paper to compliment the colors in the tag. When gluing them I offset the top layer to give a shadowed effect then edged the left side and bottom with a copper marker.
I punched out an oval, distressed it with brown inks, edged it in copper then stamped 'flies' using an old Hero Arts alphabet. The wing was cut from Tim's Heart Wings die, distressed with ink, crumpled, then edged in copper.
The clock face is a copper 3-D sticker, the spinner is Tim's. Well, not his personally, but from his Idea-ology collection.
