Better late than never........

well I am running a little late today with my posting of my design team piece for our challenge this week at Crafts4eternity,  out theme this week is 
to show something metal on your project ie charms,brads,pins,staples etc etc.
Time has not been on my side this week, with all my current work commitments, so even though I am a little late with it I am pleased that I at least managed to make something.............
The theme for my card is "Once upon a time" which is a metal sentiment band, I have no idea by whom as I have had this ages. I have also been playing around with stencils and paste again this time using Sweet Poppy dandelion stencil. I have used white gloss paste that has actually absorbed some of the distress ink which actually softens the look. these bring back memories of blowing them to tell the time. The background I originally made to use as a fathers day card. and didn't. It has been made with a mixture of brown colours of distress inks and Tims clock stencil, then the pocket watch stamped with walnut stain distress ink. A bit of ripped dictionary depicting the definition of Child and the black and white stamped images are from Art Journey. I have cut the hand so that it will hold the watch face, my 2nd addition of something metal.
Anyway we would love you to join us and show us your Heavy Metal projects so why not pop over Here and play along.

One randomly selected winner will receive a choice of 4 images from Sassy Studio's gorgeous collection.
I am also entering this card into simon says stamps challenge where they have an Anything Goes Challenge
See you all soon
