DT day, boy the weeks are flying by
this week i went for a masculine make , very unusual for me
as they are not my fave things to do,lol but i have to admit i enjoyed this one,
as you can see its a tag, its 4'' x 7'' so a nice size, first i covered it in a paper from my craft studio that i had faded quite a lot to give a very subtle patterned base, then i used the
i stamped the large pocket watch twice,fussy cut including cutting the center out of one, then layered them on quite thin sticky pads, then i added Triple thick brilliant brush on gloss glaze, filling the center to give the effect of a class cover, once dry i finished it off by rubbing Creative Expressions Patina Metallic Gilding Wax over the watch case.
to do the background i just randomly stamped using a variety of stamps from the set some in just black in some in silver embossing powder, i loved the effect of some embossing powder randomly sticking to places it wasn't meant to be. i added the sentiment take time to enjoy life using the words from the set , they kind of blend into the background a bit but at the same time are visible. then i took the gilding wax and just rubbed it into a few areas.
the watch was added , and instead of the usual ribbon though the hole i added a chain with a key on the other end and on the end attached to the watch i added a tiny dollar charm. and finished with black soot distress ink rubbed all around the edge.
this was a totally random make just playing and stamping, give it a go its a lot of fun .
