ATC Inspired by Tim's 2008 Day 1 Tag

 This ATC is inspired by some of the techniques Tim Holtz used in his 2008 Day 1 Tag (12 Tags of Christmas). I want to continue to be inspired by these tags, since Christmas is past, I decided to go for a "time" theme for the New Year.

Placed a large clock mask over an ATC sized piece of a Manila folder. Added Distress inks being careful not to move the mask.
While mask was still in place, stamped on  a smaller clock image and the backward numbers with black Archival Ink.  Then carefully wiped the ink off the mask. Let the black ink dry.
 Remove the mask and spray the ink with a mister, let the Distress Ink bleed into the previously masked area. When you're happy with the amount of bleeding, use a heat tool to stop further bleeding of the ink.
 Stamp image on grunge paper with black Archival ink and cut out with scissors. Colored sides and edges with blue Distress ink
 Filled letters in word piece with black Enamel accents. Cut a game piece arrow to look like clock hands.
 Used distress tool to distress edges of ATC and colored edges with grey Distress ink.
 Added pieces with Glossy Accents. Added black brad to clock hand and word piece. Added metal clock bits to man image with metal rim blue rhinestone brad.

I truly thank you for your instruction and inspiration. You have one of the few blogs I visit daily. Since I love making ATCs and Tim Holtz'products, it's always exciting to see what you do with both! Thank you, thank you, and Happy New Year.

This is a beautiful ATC and I have a friend with a passion for clocks. This gives me lots of ideas. Thanks
