Measured Time.

Hi Everyone Dee here again with my passion clocks, this is actually 
a two piece blog as it started out as a tag and I wasn't 
happy with it but loved the colours, So it developed
 into two pieces. So here it is
 Part 1

I love paint splats and had seen a lovely tag that just had paint or ink 
splats on it & was very effective. So I started by flicking 
water colour paint across the tag.

I wasn't happy with this so I got my distress inks out and blended 
spiced marmalade and broken china across the tag.

I stamped the numbers from the Numerical plate in fired brick distress ink,
down one side and at the bottom of the Tag. 

I stamped the Tape measure from the Ephemera Plate down the bottom in 
black versa fine and clear embossed, I also stamped it on the opposite
 side to the numbers and gold embossed it. 

The centre was stamped with the Clock of the Tick Tock plate and 
gold embossed. I stamped the graph  paper stamp in dove grey 
so it only hinted that it was there.

Texture crackle paste was put through the Artistic stamper mask The large
splat & swirl at the top and the bottle top at the bottom.
I then cut the top third of the Tag off.

On scrap card coloured with distress inks I stamped clocks from
The Time and keys plate also the tick tock 
plate I cut them out.

I then layered the clocks and embossed some of the edges with
gold and placed others on top.

I placed glass embellishments on them, along with cogs
and I also used distress crackle paint rock candy
on one of the faces. of coarse a little bit
of gilding wax, to highlight.

I backed it all onto black card. I hope you like this piece 
and come back to view part two. Please feel free to 
let me know what you think.
Cheers Dee x

I love the colors! They blend so beautifully and the unexpected gold makes it gorgeous! Is there some crackle on one of the clocks? Also, may I ask if you stamped the circle with numbers up to 31? Everything fits so well. said...

Hi rkramadh, every image has been stamped with one one of the stamps listed also I used distress crackle on the face of the main clock. Thank you to everyone for your lovely comments.Dee x
