21 cards - #18

Hello, my friends.  Here I am again with another card for the monthly challenge at Motley Soul Mixed-Media Art.  Please check this post to see how I made the base for my cards.

My daughter has been wanting to pull words from my Inspiration Jar for me, so these are the words she pulled -- grunge, freedom, and clock. 

I sponged several distress inks over the background and stamped several of the stamps from Tim Holtz sets, ultimate grunge and urban tapestry, in jet black archival ink.  

I had the perfect die, the Tim Holtz weathered clock, which I cut from kraft card stock and sponged with vintage photo and walnut stain distress inks.  Then I spritzed it with some perfect pearl mist, heat set it, and sponged on some rusty hinge and black soot distress inks.  Since I wasn't planning ahead, the clock hands were also cut from kraft, so I just used a black soot distress marker to color them.  I put an aged copper brad in the center. 

For the bird, I die cut the bird and wing from caged bird die and sponged on some distress inks. 

The words were printed from my computer, cut apart, and sponged with vintage photo distress ink. 

I love the bright bird against the grungy clock. 

Thank you so much for stopping by today.
