"Time" MOO Swap and Mirror ATC

I've just added   my ATC entry for tomorrow's swap. The theme is "Through the Looking Glass, and I presume that means Alice in Wonderland related, but as I don't have any images to suit I have just interpreted it literally and made a mirror. Yeh! It's Vicky Stampers again tomorrow and I always have a great day. Partly because of catching up with the lovely crowd of crafty friends who attend, but we do some fab projects as well as nattering. Tomorrow is a "Stamping Up" guest tutor but I don't know the project... watch this space as I may make something to post.
I signed up for my first MOO swap not knowing just how tiny the pieces would have to be ....2.8cms x 7cms!! eeek! For messy, splodgy, me that is quite a challenge so I had to think about detail and composition on an entirely different scale.
 I sponged the background with Distress Inks, made some squiggles with Conte pencils, then rubbed Distress Inks over small gauge sequin waste producing the spots. I stamped over with the Paperartsy stamp I received as a freebie for subscribing to Craft Stamper magazine and it came in perfectly for the theme of "Time". The clock faces were coated with Sepia Accents then, before it set, I dropped in some tiny watch parts, which my friend Dot had given me last birthday...... Thanks Dot, my angel, you are always there when I need you!! LOL!

The small format of a MOO scares me off a bit, but now that I see your result, I think I really should give it a try. Your MOOs are beautiful!

These are just lovely Jo - look really good fun. I've never mooed before, but I may start after seeing these! Thanks for popping by my blog x

Hi Jo

I've just been having a catch up with your lovely posts.
Your photos of your trip are gorgeous and I'm glad you had a great time with your family. Special moments!
Your little creations are gorgeous. So much detail on something so small.

Fab, Jo - love them :) The colours look really good! Don't know about you but I won't be doing Moos again - too fiddly for my hands.
