GM#35..Tim inspired atc for grungy Monday, the first time I have entered!!!!!

Hey there,
Well have I had some crafty fun time this weekend and i love following Grungy Monday and looking at all the fab entries but this is the first time I have plucked up the gusto to have a go....this weeks theme is to create and atc, inspired by a Tim technique....hard to choose as there are so many awesome techniques....
I decided to have a go at rusted enamel, as detailed on page 41 of compendium of curiosities, can't wait for no two!!!!
So here is my atc:

I started by creating the background using the rusted enamel technique,I then stamped a clock stamp in black archival ink overlapping the corners.
I then stamped umbrella man in black soot and clear embossed, colouring with vintage photo and cutting out. The sentiment was stamped onto card coloured with weathered wood DI, in black soot, I then used the same technique tapping a lot of the clear powder off, embossed and coloured in vintage photo.
I am really chuffed with the results and loved doing this, despite the fact that there was so little space on an atc!!I will definitely be using this technique again soon!
I am entering this for the following competitions:
