Hi Crafters! I'm really excited to get through this post, and you will see why towards the end.
At the All Things Tim Yahoo Group, the ATC swap challenge this month is "Wings". So here mine is.
|I stuck some Inkssentials Metal Foil Tape to cardstock, and then colored it with Red Pepper Alcohol Ink.|
|I used Tim's Mini Clock Die to cut the shapes out.|
|I added Alcohol Ink Blending Solution to an Alcohol Ink Pen, and removed the Ink from the feet, knob, and hands of the clock. I recolored the hands with Pitch Black Alcohol Ink in another Pen.|
|I inked the clocks with Walnut Stain and then poured UTEE on them and heat embossed. The red faded a little bit, but it made a wonderful vintage color.|
|More Foil Tape was adhered to cardstock and then gessoed very lightly. I used Tim's Sizzix Heart Wings Die to cut wings.|
|I coated the wings with Crackle Accents, let them dry, and then inked them with Walnut Stain.|
|I created a masterboard using a sheet of Sandable Embossed Graphic 45 Cardstock from Core-dinations. I sanded the clock faces, and then stamped 2013 using Brushed Pewter Distress Stain. After I cut the ATCs, I inked the edges with Black Soot Distress Ink, and misted the cards with Biscotti Perfect Pearls. After I adhered the flying clocks, I computer generated the sentiment.|
I am also submitting this to Hels Sunday Stamper challenge for "Things That Fly". And, I will finally get to meet Hels at CHA in the flesh!

I hope your hands get creatively dirty soon!
