Measured Time Part Two Time Flies

Hi everyone, I hope you are all well I have for you today the second part 
of my original tag that went towards making Measured Time, (please
see 10th september post on this blog)
and now Time Flies.  

The instructions on how to make the base tag are on the post
Time Measured.

Here's a few photo's below of the original tag, The paste I used to 
put through the artistic stamper stencil Splats and was a crackle paste.
I enhanced the top with fired brick distress ink 
blended on with a blending tool.

Water colour paints and distress inks were used to colour the original 
tag and The Artistic Stamper Stamps were Numerical plate ,

I triple embossed black card with gold embossing powder and stamped
 the artistic stamper post mark from the Katy Leitch carte postal plate.
I used grunge board for the clock and used the Tim Holtz 
clock die. I coloured the clock and embossed it to
 look like old rusted metal.

I used Viva Ferro Graphite I put it on the top 
of the tag with a palette knife.

I stamped the dragon fly from the Artistic Stamper insects and butterflies plate,
onto a piece of card. I coloured the card with metallic
 paints. I used Versafine Onyx Black and then used
 clear embossing powder over & heat set.

I cut out the wings and used beads from my stash to make up the body 
for the end of the tail I used Ranger gold Stickles.

I attached the dragonfly to the clock from the Tick Tock 
plate which had been embossed onto whites card
that had been coloured with broken china 
and spiced marmalade distress ink.

I assembled it all together and attached the postal marks
over the graphite which had been enhanced with 

That's it for today, I hope you have all enjoyed this two part 
project. Thank you for stopping by and please feel free to 
let me know what you think.
Cheers Dee x
