This piece satisfies 2 challenges - and me 'cos I had a ball again!
1. http://pinkleart.blogspot.com/ aka Sunday Stampers challenge #92 is MEN and
2. http://allsortschallenge.blogspot.com/ challenge #40 is a tag, a ticket or a label.
I used one of the labels that Mario, Tim Holtz's assistant sent me (a request I made at Christmas so I could have the proper base for the 12 tags). First of all, I stamped the pocket watch with Versamark embossed with clear powder. This formed a resist when I used distress inks to colour the tag all over. I stamped the writing with aged mahogany distress ink and then attached the spinners and die cut watch hands with a brad. The chain is simply held at the back with tape. The image is Personal Impressions P1333P and was advertised as 'Odds On' when I bought it, but I've seen it called other names on various projects. Anyway, I've used it in the context of a man in a betting shop hence the numbers and word 'evens'. I stamped him on grungeboard with Archival black and simply cut him out. A bit of distress inking took the grey away before I used 3D foam to add him to the tag.
The whole thing could make a topper for a man's card, but I may just add him to my ever-growing stash.
