Time ticks on Dt piece for anything goes challenge

Hey there,
Well here I am with another monochrome offering and a tag, two firm favourites.The challenge over at anything goes this fortnight is time with a steam punk twist if you like. Surprisingly I haven't done a steam punk tag, which I thought I would but I love the tag I have made, it just happened and worked!!! So here it is:

I started by making the background using a DI to colour a tag and then embossing using fab Tim time embossing folder. Then I added a great chipboard clock from The Artistic Stamper and the co-ordinating Time stamps, inked in Archival. I coloured it with DI and then added glossy accents to the clock face.

The sentiment is another that I love and was stamped onto a DI and spritzed piece of cardstock.
I finished the tag using flowers made from the tattered floral die, some ribbon trim coloured and some vintage seam binding.

make sure you pop across to anything goes to see the fab dt pieces and also to pop in an entry yourslves! For all your crafty goodies pop acrsos to lynnes craftden.

I am entering this for the following challenges:
