Time Flies


Size #12 tag coloured with metalic distress paints, aged mahogany and black soot. Once dried distress stains added over a TH clock mask (bottom right). Clock texture fade embossed in top left corner.


Film strip stamp and numbers added using black archival.


Tim's idea-ology alpha tiles to spell out the words.


Die cut and embossed wings painted in pewter and rubbed with treasure gold. Alteration dies used to assemble the clock face.


Pewter treasure gold used over the embossing to bring out the raised parts.

A Vintage Journey have a theme of time flies and Simon Says Monday have a theme of scratched up and want to see something grungy.

This turned out so great! I am really impressed with your mastery of so many techniques and the way you brilliantly incorporated all of those fabulous metallic tones! I really like how it turned out and how it's a perfect mix of whimsy and sophistication. I thought it was especially clever of you to use the die that you did to form the clock face. Thanks so much for the inspiration and for sharing this with us here at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog!
