Birthday Tick Tock

The dreaded birthday countdown made a little easier with the rest of the sentiment inside     "... and more awesome every year".

I made the painted background using distress inks, then when dry, I stencilled over using a strip of metal sequin waste.  Then I wandered over it with scribbly white gel pen.  The diecut clocks are stamped over (black clock with grey versacolor, pale grey clock with smoky grey Versafine ink).  I stamped the sentiment in navy because I didn't want it to stand out too much.  I think the three simple elements work well together.

Distress inks
Sequin Waste for stencil
Clock die: Kaisercraft
Newsprint stamp: Hero Arts
Bird die: Spellbinders
Sentiment stamp: Inkadinkadoo
