Tea Time!

I've done this card for the June challenge over at Inkurable Stampers. The challenge this month was to make something with a tag and with the theme 'time', so I've gone with 'Tea-time'!

My background for the stamped piece is made using Tim Holtz Distress Inks and sprayed over with lovely Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists............this stuff is just so shimmery IRL, but probably a bit hard to see on a photo. Clicking the photo for a larger view may help. I'm getting a little ahead of myself here as I actually stamped the image before I did the background. I've done the same tech with the tag, I also distressed around the edges of the main image. I've antiqued my lace by inking it up with Tim Holtz Antique Linen Distress Ink too.

Apologies for posting yet another colour combo of pink and brown! I didn't realise this was the 3rd card in a row with those colours! I do like those colours, but next time I'll do something different.

Supplies Used:
Sorry, but once again I don't know what brand the main stamp is - if anyone knows please LMK.
Fob Watch - Treasure Cay.
Canvas background stamp - Stampin' Up.
Inks: Tim Holtz Distress Inks - Tattered Rose, Antique Linen, Shabby Shutters, Tea Dye.
Versafine Vintage Sepia.
Making Memories rubon letters.
K & Company Clear Oval letter.
Collections 'time' word.
Tattered Angel Glimmer Mists - Vintage Pink, Bronze.
Ribbons, lace, clockface button.

Beautiful card Lyn. Is your main image from Chapel Road Artstamps? It looked very familiar and I found one like it here:

Thanks for your nice comments ladies!

Thanks for that link Sheryl, someone else suggested that it was Chapel Rd Art Stamps too, but asked me if it was grey rubber- it isn't, but it is the same stamp and I do have the other smaller images that are on that plate.
