Fantasy Stampers GDT - Time Files

Good morning all.
I hope you are all well.
A loooonnggg day at work for me today, i am already at work now until 3pm and then back again at 6pm till 10pm but i do have tomorrow off :D
So on to why i am here, today i have the great honour of joining the fabulous ladies at the Fantasy Stampers Challenge as their GDT.
Our Blog Logo
The ladies have their GDT join them as the midway inspiration for their challenge.
So the challenge is `Time Flies`.
Great theme and one that had me having a good rummage through my stamps, i found this stamp which i have only inked once before so i thought it was time to show him some ink again.
Pop across to the challenge and get your entries in, just remember to use a rubber or cling stamp.....no digi`s allowed.
Here is my card which i am also entering into the following challenges:
1.Bunny Zoes Challenge - October Challenge - Animals
2.Pile It On Challenge - Challenge 41 - Use 2 or more dies
4.Inky Impressions Challenge - Challenge 181 - Anything goes
5.Pennys Paper Crafty Challenge - Challenge 199 - Anything goes
6.Chocolate, Coffee & Cards Challenge - Challenge 76 - For the boys
7.Sister Act Challenge - Challenge 79 - Anything goes
8.Graph It Challenge - Week 42 - Extra FX
9.Creative Fingers Challenge - Challenge 53 - Anything goes

I forgot how much fun this stamp is.
Products used are:
Black card
Docrafts papers, oval topper and sentiment
Buttons
Distress tool
Gilding wax
Sizzix Cogs die
Sizzix clock die
Twine
Stampendous stamp - Steampunk owl
Polychromo pencils
White gel pen
Sansador

A close up of the owl, i have just scribbled the background roughly and then blended it out a bit.
I should of used a fineliner around his eyes as they don`t look like they stamped overly black, ah well.

And a sideways view
Thanks so much for looking and thanks to Jan and the rest of the Fantasy Stampers ladies for asking me to join them for the month of October.
Lotsa Hugs
Nic.
