Time flies when I am with you!!!!

Hey there,
Well I was lucky enough to have some play time yesterday and here is the result:
This tag combines a number of my favourite challenges including Simon says challenge, which has to have torn edges, a button,wings and distress inks....I love all these except the button, but managed to get one on...,fashionable stamping and a new favourite pans pastels.

I started with a tag that I had crackled using crackle medium and emulsion...this was coloured with DI and spritzed with perfect pearls mist in heirloom gold.the left hand side is part of another tag coloured with DI and over stamped with heart stamp(free from craftstamper).
The main tag was over stamped with a clock stamp from some whimsy stamps and text a Tim one in aged mahogany. The sentiment is stamped and clock are stamped in black gold detail embossing powder from craftynotions. The wings are grungepaper and coloured with DI.

The ribbon and ribbon roses were coloured by splodging...technical term, into distress stains that had been swiped across craft mat and spritzed.
I have added little keys,clock charm,ideology and old watch parts.I made the heart using utee melted in a melt pot and poured into a crafty notions mould that had been brushed with perfect pearls gold.

Am chuffed with how this turned out, let me know what you think!?
I am entering this for the following competitions:
