Tando 2012

Apart from my challenge piece this is my first DT piece for Tando for 2012 - Di has been busy designing some fab new designs and here I've used the large clock face this also comes with the hands...

The clock face was coloured using distress inks and then stamped over using versafine ink and a large text stamp - this was then given a coating of crackle glaze...once dry the cracks were hi-lighted by giving the clock face a further covering of distress ink.  The clock hands were enamelled using the stampendous vantage enamelling powder....just love that stuff!!  The clock face is mounted onto a square canvas board which was coloured using dylusions paints, tim holtz stamps hi lighted with a white pen and using lighter coloured paints to give some texture to the piece.  The birds (?) are a paperartsy stamp and were coloured in using colouring pencils and then triple embossed using clear powder, the tape they are standing on is from the same paperartsy plate, stamped onto white card and then coloured using distress inks....

Do keep a look on the tando blog the dt create some stunning pieces which are sure to inspire you.
