Time Flies

And it certainly does! I've had the base of this tag sitting on my desk since Tuesday (it made an appearance on my desk this last Wednesday!) and I just wasn't sure what to do with it.

It's an ordinary manilla tag, run through my lovely 'Bug with a beautiful embossing folder that came with it. I inked over it with Tea Dye DI to bring out the embossing even more and then edged it with Walnut Stain.

Then on Friday the back issues of Craft Stamper magazine that I had ordered arrived and with the February issue was this rather fetching little pocket watch and 'Tempus Fugit' script. So I tore a piece of card and inked with my fave combo of DI's; Antique Linen, Tea Dye and Walnut Stain. I flicked a bit of water at it and once dry the script was stamped in black StazOn and the watch in WS. And then that was it again for a couple of days.

Anywho, over the weekend I finally finished it! I wrapped the panel with a bit of twine and layered on foampads. The watch was stamped again, this time in black, onto white card and inked (AL and TD). the little inner dial and the hands were glazed with a Sakura glaze pen.

I cut some wings out, using a template, from a grey-ish board for a different colour and inked and stamped with TD and WS.

The letters were torn ransom stylee from the freebie newspaper we get here and aged with those same inks.

As this weeks theme over with the lovely Hels at the Sunday Stamper is brown I thought this was a very apt project.

And also, there is not a flower in sight so I will also enter this into the Creative Card Crew's 'no flowers' challenge.

That little pocket watch on Craft Stamper was designed by little old me. Glad to see you used it.
