I was so excited when I found out this week's theme on the Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge - TIME... I love clocks and watches so this was right up my alley. We put our Christmas tree up the week after Thanksgiving so my Christmas Spirit has kicked in... so, naturally, I wanted to do a Christmas themed project. Here we go...
I started with the Studio 490 art parts pocket watches (both large and small). I covered the center cutout from the large art pocket watch with with paper from seasonal paper stack, and then gave it a coat of rock candy crackle paint. Then I used the weathered clock die cutting it out of grungeboard, painted with black paint dabber, then using my finger to swipe gold paint dabber over that. Adhered to the center cutout. I attached the hands of the clock with idea-ology gears.
I painted the base and the top frame with gold paint dabber, pouncing on the paint so it leaves peaks, which I then highlighted with black archival ink. I sandwiched the center cutout between the base and the frame (the weathered clock die is slightly larger that the cutout... see side view...
I added a Christmas muse token, "25" plaquette, some antique brass chain, a rhinestone brad from Jennie Bowlin, and an antique brass key (eBay find...). And of course, stamped the sentiment with a mini alpha set.
On the small pocket watch, I painted the base with black paint dabber, and lightly swiped white paint dabber over the top in streaks. I added a distressed timepiece to the center, and a game spinner painted with gold paint dabber. The frame is painted with gold paint dabber, with black ink over the peaks.
I had a blast with this week's project! Hope you get a chance to play along and have a chance at winning a $50 shopping spree from Simon Says Stamp! Free stash at this time of year is definitely a good thing!
Have a great week!
