The stamp Man Challenge - distress

So this time The Stamp Man wants distress or is that de stress?? Actually I find creating a tremendous de stressor although somehow my OH does not understand this urge to craft instead of clean LOL.
Anyway back to the challenge - I bought this clock face stamp from the shop last year when doing a workshop with Jill about clocks - infact she also did something similar in craft stamper do you remember the gorgeous UTEE clock? Well it led me to this purchase and I have sadly neglected its need to be used - so here it is. Done as Jill did on shrink plastic although hers was perfectly round and mine started off that way too but what happened? Still you can get oval clocks so i carried on. I have inked a piece of card run through the cuttlebug with victorian velvet distress ink - roughed up the edges with the Tim Holtz distress tool and mounted it all onto some pearly black card - hey presto an atc for the Tim Holtz swap I have joined. Now as ever my fellow teamies have produced some stunners and with links to all the products used too you can't go wrong so do stop by the Stampman challenge blog and take a peep x
