Tick Tock at TIOT!

Hi everyone, I am still on my travels and this another scheduled post.
Our new theme at Try It On Tuesday is Clocks and the team have some great samples to show you.
I made a card for one of my sons and I'm pleased to say he liked it!
He loves to get out on his bicycle when he can!

I started with a card that had some gold paint on and added some random clocks from Paper Artsy Clocks4 set (one of the first PA stamps I ever bought)

I added some posh map paper 
I pressed my Walnut Stain Distress Oxide pad in the centre of a piece of watercolour paper and spritzed and dabbed until I was happy with 'bleed'
I stamped the large clock and the word from the same PA set using Perfect Medium and brushed two colours of Mica over them
I wasn't quite happy with it though so added some bronze paint around the edge which I heated until it bubbled slightly(a trick picked up in Tracy Scott's Workshop!),this time I used Bronze Embossing powder.

I dug into a box of old peel offs for the sentiment!

We shall be home soon and I'm sure there will be tales to tell and photos to show! For now I will still be relying on a decent wi-fi connection!

Thanks for looking, Chris
