Horologium and Chicago Theater on Watercolor

My friend, Lynette, gave me this cool collage stamp. 
It's a wood mounted stamp made by Club Scrap.
The image has the words "Horologium Pendulum".
Had to look up "horologium"...it's an ancient clock, like a sundial or hourglass.
It's also a constellation in the sky.
I guess that's why there are lots of little stars on this stamp.
My "watercolor" background was made from left-over distress reinker and water 
that was setting on my craft sheet, previously described here.
Distress reinkers used:  peeled paint and dried marigold
Inks used: Versafine black onyx,
distress rusty hinge-on the word "Art" and also for the sponging.
The small square of burlap was attached with
Craft & photo tape by Scrapbook Adhesives
Stamps: Club Scrap, Hampton Arts, Printworks

Made this card from a watercolor test scrap
using a "new" set of watercolors that Lynette found for me at a garage sale.
Not sure of the brand because the label was missing.
This is much better than the watery Koh-I-Noor set I had.
As I have mentioned before, I am not impressed with the Koh-I-Noor watercolors.
