So, first up is this tag. I cut the tag with Colin, inking it with distress inks (I now have black soot fingers-hurrah, proper crafting!!). I then spritzed some water on a script stamp and stamped on the tag to remove some of the colour, overstamping with a compass style design stamp.
I then added some metal on the bottom half of the tag. This was a recycled tomato puree tube (I cant get enough of these...I have even started asking friends to save them for me!) which I used a Ten Second Studio embossing mat with to create the word TIME and the clock faces. I used black paint over the top, wiping some off to expose the decal.
I added a couple of eco green craft cogs which I covered with black rub on wax then glossy accents.
I ran versamark around the edge and added some bronze embossing powder and added a stamped sentiment on a spellbinders label adding bronze embossing and black soot DI to bring it all together, finishing it off with a spritz of gold mica and water so blend the DI a little bit more.
I am entering this into the following challenges:
Back to Black - at Sunday stampers on http://pinkleart.blogspot.com/
Steam Punk - at http://tuesdaytaggers.blogspot.com/
Anything goes - at http://sirstampalotchallenge.blogspot.com/
So, if you fancy popping over to any of the blogs above I recommend it-they have all inspired me to actually try something new and actually enter a challenge (not something I often do).
