Time Flies when you're having fun :)

I took out my stash of TH/Ranger products today and had myself an inkin' up party! LOL. I am entering this card into the Simon Says Stamp Challenge which is themed Let's Craft with Tim.

I was going for a 'Time Flies' theme (hence the clockworks mask and little bird.. ) but I'm not sure it's obvious enough.

For the background paper: I used Ranger Glossy Paper, specifically for alcohol inks, and inked it with Currant, Slate and Meadow and blended them using a little bit of blending solution. Then I added in Gold metal mixative. Finally I stamped flourishes using Inkadinkadoo stamps.

For the tag: I distressed the tag using Pine Needles, placed the TH Clockworks mask on top and then blended in Weathered Wood. I spritzed it using a mini mister and let it dry off before I added a TH Gamespinner.

I used a Grungeboard plate and inked it using Mellow Adirondack Paint Dabber, stamped the 'June' (using Studio G stamps) onto it after it had dried and then liberally applied Ranger Accents to both the grungeboard and the stamped bird, although you can't tell it's on the bird in the pictures. This did take a while to dry :S I secured the plate to the tag using bronze eyelets from my stash.

It's not often I get to use so many yummy products on one project and I really enjoyed this one :)
