Time Travellers Tag Card

A Size 10 tag card from me today for the new challenge at Fashionable Stamping Challenges which is called 'Sentimental'. 


Supplies
Tim Holtz Time Traveller stamps
broken china, walnut stain and picket fence distress paints (DPs)
brushed pewter distress stain (DS)
black and brown archival ink
dried marigold, peacock feathers, chipped sapphire, frayed burlap, walnut stain and black soot distress inks (DIs)
sentiment - Tim Holtz
Ideaology and charm


The background is a blend of the DPs, spritzed and heat dried then over stamped with the cogs in both brushed pewter DS and black archival ink plus the suitcases stamped in brown and watercoloured in with DIs.


The sentiment is from a Tim Holtz set


The gentlemen have been stamped in black and also watercoloured with the DIs, cut out and edged with walnut stain.


The clock has been made from the pocket watch embossing folder.


Once complete the tag was tied with folded tissue tape.


I feel I am really getting my eye back into painting as I loved watercolouring the two gents and  have inspired myself to do more lol.

Maybe I will see you over at FSC if you have a sentiment on your project over the next fortnight, I would love to see you there.

I hope your weekend is going well.

Have fun.
