Exhibit A...

Lori at Everything Wendy Vecchi challenged us to use a watch face, Tissue Tape and at least one Studio 490 stamp this fortnight and so I made an ATC with a flower Art Part. The ATC was cut from mountboard and covered it with Tissue Tape, I sanded the edges and inked them with Peeled Paint Distress Ink. 
The Flower Art Part was covered with two layers of Snowcap Adirondack Ink and then the stem sprayed with Cut Grass Dylusions Spray which I patted dry. I then inked the edges of the leaves in Peeled Paint Distress Ink. I then stamped the stem in with a background stamp (from Be Happy... Make Art) again in Peeled Paint. The face of the flower is a different Tissue Tape (I turned the flower over and removed the excess Tissue Tape with my scapel) and I used a real watch face with a small Game Spinner (I inked the spinner with Citrus Alcohol Ink). 
The Ornate Plate was covered in white paint and when nearly dry I rubbed it off and added Peeled Paint Distress Ink over the paint that was left - it looks really shabby chic in real life! The 'exhibit A' stamp was popped onto a little card and attached to the ATC. I had real fun making this - I hope you like it too!

Hi
This is beautiful.
I especially like when elements overhang the edges, such as that amazing flower.
