This weeks challenge set by Hels on Sunday Stampers had to do with time. The challenge from Funky Fairy was "you've been tagged" so this is my project for both. I made a tag from some plain white cardstock and stamped the pocket watch stamp from Artistic Stamper in pale gold ink. The image was then embossed with clear embossing powder. I then used Distress Inks in Scattered Straw, Broken China and Black Soot and blended them randomly over the tag. Next, I rubbed a baby wipe over the tag until the embossed image showed through. This is the first time I have tried the resist technique, I really like the result.
I then stamped the pocket watch in white Staz-on onto black shrink plastic a few times and shrunk them down. I attached 3 of the shrunken watch images to the bottom of the tag. I took a small piece of mountboard and inked it up using the same colours as used for the tag. I used some peel-off letters, coloured black, on the mountboard to spell out "TIME" and finished the tag off with some co-ordinating ribbon and fibre. I am very pleased with this tag and I get to keep it all to myself as it is part of a techniques project I am doing with a new technique each month. I hope you like it too.
