Time keeper

I made this atc for the Created ByHand Challenge which was to use a new technique. I see that the TMTA challenge is called Tick Tock...fascinating watches, so I'll enter this for both.


The new technique is one I saw on Patti Behan's new blog, where you 'splat' with Dabbers. She demonstrates this on a video. This image covers up most of the background, but you can see evidence of the splatting! I distressed the edges of the atc with some scissors (not having any fancy gadgets) and sponged with gold.

Well, I'm still a little confused as to what the splashing with dabbers means -so I'll take a look at that video you linked. How thoughtful.
Your card is delightfully effective. Thanks for sharing.Love,
