It's time for the next challenge over at The Fashionable Stamping Challenge and for the next 2 weeks the challenge is hosted by Brenda and Joanne. The theme is 'Show some love ! '
I decided that I would take the opportuntiy to make something for my other half for Valentine's Day. I prefer not to make a card but something that is more of a memento.
I've had the Wendy Vecchie Pocket Watch Art Parts for ages and not done anything with them, so decided this would be the ideal time. I started by stencilling the background using a numbers stencil and stamped over it using a Tim Holtz text stamp from the Going Anywhere set. The hearts are cut using a Sizzix die from some card stock that I've covered in Ferro texture paste and when dry embossed with a Texture Fade EF. I then covered it with Metallic Distress Stains.
I've used a stamp from the Odds and Ends Tim Holtz stamp set and cut the number 14 from the end and blended DI around the edge. The ticket is a Crafty Individuals stamp and I've blended DI over it too. I added some Ferro Texture paste to parts of the pocket watch. I then painted it with Chocolote Pudding Fresco Finish paint, stamped the Tim Holtz text stamp over it and once dry rubbed Treasure Gold over the top. The screw head is a brad that I cut the legs off.
I hope you get chance to join us for this challenge and do make sure you hop over to the main blog and check out the rest of the DT's fabulous work !
