tick tock - SSS Monday Challenge

As you might be aware over at Simon Says Stamp there is a new challenge that starts every Monday and this time it is tick tock. It was left up to us to decide how to incorporate time in the piece presented.

 Well i decided to go for 2 versions; one being a gone by era and the other a clock. So out came my free stamps from creative stamper magazine issue 14 and Kaisercraft papers ( again! i hear you moan). On a piece of taupe card I stamped the gentleman in potting soil archival ink. I coloured his trousers, shoes, hat and face with distress markers. I then stamped him twice on tan paper and paper pieced his coat. I stamped cogs from same set all around edges and inked it to distress.I added glossy accents to hat, shoes and gloves.

  

I matted on various papers from the pack, added some twine a cog and a couple of ideology pieces one of which was a clock. The sentiment was stamped again on taupe card with potting soil archival and cut out with a fancy tag 2 from spellbinders. I inked it while still in die.

 

I inked all around a base card to tone it in. Finished card is 7x7. I hope you like my make and if not too much bother leave me a comment to let me know what you think, Theresa xx

I would like to enter this card in the SSS Monday challenge - tick tock
                                                                one stitch at a time - anything goes



 Below is another version of the card. This time the gentleman is wearing a suede coat and I stamped some other images on background. The metal embellishment is a corner and i also added some ranger black enamel in corners.

  3. Both of these cards are such great 'male' creations Theresa! I think the stamp is wonderful (so wonderful I have just been and ordered the magazine issue 15 - not 14) on line. I love everything about your card - colours, layout, embellishments etc.

    Thank you so much for joining us over at the OSAAT challenge this week, lots of luck.

    Hugs to you Sue Pxxx DT member
