One Life..Live It!

So I decided I wanted to partake in a couple of challenges and the one's that caught my eye this week were Sunday Stamper. Hels has a 'Brown' theme and I love me some brown shades,
and Crafty Emblies with there new 'no theme' policy.
I have a bit of a new addiction at the moment, Alarm clock Art!
Basically using the Tim Holtz tick tock alterations die and several layers of corrugated card {namely my cat food boxes} i've been making quite a few of these little beauties.
Credit where credit is due.. I was inspired after seeing a utube by Bona, though i've made mine slightly different to the way she makes her's. And since making this one i've done them different again {but I won't go into that now}
 I've used Bo Bunny's 'Et Cetera' papers, a selection of punched out leaves and wild orchid crafts roses.
along with Crafty Emblies wooden pieces, an idea-ology key and a bit of old doily lace, oh and some chit-chat stickers. The edges were covered with micropore tape, trimmed and given a coat of 'mocha mousse' fresco finish paint.
I will apologise now if my blog becomes a wash with these little criters, but they are just so much fun to make, and if I make um I just know you're all gonna wanna see um! So don't say you weren't warned!! lol
Till the next one..
Stay Inky
