One Powerful Hour - Temptress of Time

Here's a piece I made today in about an hour for a new challenge. Well, new to me anyway. The concept is that you make something in any medium of your choosing in about an hour. Well, the theme for this week is 'Clock' and I knew that I had to participate. Here's the thing- I bought this stamp about 7 years ago. Well, that's an understatement- I saw it used in somebody's artwork in a magazine and HAD to have it.It's called the Temptress and it's designed by Lynne Perrella (whose work I adore) However, it was no longer being manufactured. I searched high and low and found a site that sold Acey Deucy stamps- Stamp Diva, and inquired about it. There were none to be had, it was out of production. However, the owner of the company had one and she mailed it to me at no charge because there is a small imperfection. Great, right? Yes, except that once I had it in my hands, I hardly ever used it. There it sat, unloved and ignored. So, of course I had to use it today. I painted and inked stampboard, added some clock images and clock parts and covered the whole shebang in UTEE, and then stamped into that. Love it, it's one of the favorite things I have ever made, and if it wasn't for this challenge, I would never had sat down and used it. P.S. The stamp is now being manufactured again, just in case you love the image as much as I do and just HAVE to have it in your collection.
