I started with Leigh Grady's Happileigh Scrappin's Taking Time clock - colored the pendulum with Copics and gold gel pen, then colored with VersaMark Marker and clear heat embossed.

Colored with copics and gold gel pen a slightly large version of the clock, then cut it out.

I sponged Distress Inks on the background around the smaller clock. Using the flowers and gears cut out of Tim Holtz's dies as masks, I sponged over them on the background.  Then I stamped the images on the background also using Distress Inks. 

Next I added the larger clock using dimensional tape on the closk face and the bottom of the pendulum.  I cut off the pendulum rod and glued it directly on to the background.

I sponged Distress Ink on the die cut flower and button and attached them using dimensional foam tape. 

Last, I matted the entire image on Early Espresso cardstock and DCWV design paper.
Dimensions - 5" x 7"
