Alpha Challenge - C

It's the second letter of The Craft Barn's alphabet challenge but not as we know it. The next letter is C so I have chosen Clock as my word, having just purchased some lovely Docrafts Chronoloy stuff.
I stuck my piece of dictionary page to my ATC and using distress stains in Fired Brick, Rusty Hinge, Vintage Photo and Antique Linen over some punchinella (not that you can tell now) coloured the background. It was then embossed with a Tri Boss folder (love how much detail are in these), inked over with Vintage Photo then embossed with clear embossing powder, added charms and sentiment which has glossy accents on. The word of my choice seemed to have vanished as it all came out a bit darker than I planned, but think I managed to resucue it by distressing with a craft knife and stripping back some of the layers. Hope you like it, I'm really enjoying these. I might even do a set of tags as well.
