TIO #81 Timepieces

This week Frankie is leading the TIO Challenge, dreaming of Timepieces. I decided to Christen the new stamp plate I got when I re-newed my Craft Stamper subscription, at Port Sunlight. She is a curvey girl stood infront of a pocket watch, by Artistic Stamper. I'd seen the stamp before, so I was delighted when I realised it was the freebie at the show!! I inked my tag in a mixture of milled lavender, dusty concorde, bundled sage and black soot distress inks. I stamped the lady out in black soot, then made sure the tag was dry enough to add colour on to with promarkers, and a white chalk pencil (fab bit of kit!). I then over stamped some Tim Holtz clocks around the edge in dusty concorde and bundled sage, to create a border. To finish off I added glossy accents to the clock face, and distress stickles in victorian velvet, and crushed olive. Hope you like the tag and come over to join in the challenge at DragonsDream, just click the logo on the sidebar. Elizabeth x

Smashin tag. Like the clock face set behind the lady, and a great colour combo.

A real show stopper! Lovely image and the colours and border you have created work so well.
Glossy accents on the clock face draw your eye into the design.
