Steampunk tag

Good afternoon fellow creators

I wanted to do something other than a box today and guess what??? I ended up doing yet another tag.  I really need to get past them lol!

I wanted a steam punk theme.  I cut out some chipboard and painted it in cream acylic paintI then sponged over with brushed corduroy 

I used a creative expressions stamp from the timekeeper set a well under used set which I forgot about lol.  I embossed some black card using a time embossing folder, painted in black acrylic and rubbed over with spanish gold and light gold to give metallic effect.  I used the same technique on cog die cut and wooden cogs.  I used a couple of TH game spinners for clock hands on one of the cogs. 



 
At the top of the tag I used a wooden pocket watch and heavily layed down crackle accents on the face...The metal clock face came from my stash I made the other using a bottle top, cut out and epoxy.  the chain came from an old necklace.  oriinally this was silver but I roughed it up using spanish gold rub.  I layed this from the clocks and around the cogs.  The sentiment 'Inspire' is also wooden.

Thanks for taking the time to drop by today and I hope you will continue visiting.

Happy Weekend to all of you

PS I do have another project I am halfway through so maybe back later.

  2. Oh my gosh, I don't know if I would get past them or not, because you're so good at making them! This steampunked gear tag is INCREDIBLE!! It's an art to decorate a card, but to be able to take 1/4 of that paper base and do something with a tag is a whole other talent in itself!
    Beautiful work here :)

    Thank you so much for taking the time to link up your talent and creative ideas with us at Make It Monday!
    Happy Crafting...
