Bad Timing...

It's time for a new challenge over at Craft-Room and the lovely Suzanne has chosen the theme of 'Time'. Suzanne says Time is something she never has enough of and I can definitely relate to that ! We would love to see projects inspired by 'time' with a 'timepiece' on them.   Our sponsor this week is the wonderful Crafty Individuals

I have had a bit of a technical hitch this week and when trying to take photos of my inspiration piece my camera died - talk about bad timing! So,  I know that we don't allow back linked entries but for the purposes of inspiration only I have fallen back on an old project I made earlier this year.

The main panel is distress inks on a chipboard square, covered with several layers of UTEE, into which I've sprinkled Egyptian gold embossing powder and  watch parts. I also stamped into the layers while still hot and fluid. 

The bottle and wings are shrink plastic (stamps from The Artistic Stamper). 

This distinguished gentlemen is a stamp from indigo Blu. I don't have many shop bought embellishments so made my own 'watch fob' with a type charm, clock face cut from some Tim Holtz paper and a piece of chain from an old key ring. 

Apologies for sharing an old project, but I thought it was better than not sharing anything at all !! I really hope you join us and look forward to seeing your Time pieces...Esther xx
