Time Flies!

Hi All,
Just popping in to add my entry for this month's Clarity Challenge
The challenge this month is clocks.
Well, I have used my clock stencil on this card and I am hoping that will qualify it for an entry.
So I also used the Row of birds stamp that you can find here.
Now not only do you get that stamp, you also get three little flowers, and masks for the birds and the flowers. For £19.99 (less if you are a club member) that can't be bad can it??
So here we go then, this is the finished card.
The birds were stamped onto a piece of paper that I had made using Acrylic Chalk paints using my blending mat.  Squidged the inks and then sprayed with water and then patted the paper onto the blending mat.  Stamped the image and then cut it out.
Used a piece of left over paper from the same session and added a piece of white card down the middle then put the birds on to the white card.
Then I used one of my stencil brushes and brushed TH Spun Sugar distress ink through the clock stencil in three different places.
Then, using one of the Alphabet round stencil wheels I sponged the same Spun Sugar distress ink to add the sentiment.
I am really chuffed with how this turned out and it is all thanks to the lovely Maria Simms and her Clarity Workshops in Shrewsbury.
So there you have it, my entry for the current Clarity Stamp Challenge - clocks
