Its Crafting Time DT Challenge - Diecuts

'Time Flies'

So, I was posted these HUUUUGE diecuts to play with. OK, I thought, I can see a card design and a scrapbook page, but an ATC???? As usual, after several nights sleep, the inspiration came.
I took 3 plain white ATCs and inked them with a very pale putty colour. Then I used the clockface diecut as a mask and inked through it with a darker brown. The next layer of ink was reddy brown leaves.
I found a diecut hand made paper tag and tied a ribbon through the hole. The next layer is a piece woven grass paper. Over the top I have put a section of the clock face, which got coloured up when it was used as a mask. It is only held on with the two brads. The laser cut butterfly has been inked with the same colours.
I have then posted a 'Graphic45' design tag and label underneath.

Finally I added the clock hands with a brad and then a few gems.

The second one I used the same inks and another part of the clock face. The diecut clock hads have been inked and then embossed with a clear gold pearl. The cherub diecut is inked and then embossed with TH distress embossing powder.

The final ATC has a diecut shrinkie bird and birdcage and a few trimmed pieces of a diecut sprig

Even I actually love these ATC's!

Sorry the pictures aren't great, I took them on my phone!
