The theme this week at
Tick Tock - #40
I have a couple of stamps that would fit this theme
quite nicely, but then I looked at my collection
of tags that already have backgrounds
and found the perfect one.
This background tag has a twin as when I stamped them
they were pushed next to each other
and so each tag got half a clock.
I had started off blending Distress Ink colours together,
probably a mix of 'mustard seed' and 'fired brick'.
(I say 'probably' as these tags were done some time ago,
before I owned 'spiced marmalade', and I know
if you blend yellow, red, yellow and just a tad more red,
you get a lovely rich orange colour)
I stamped the winged clock from Graphic 45 "Happy Hauntings"
with 'jet black' Archival Ink
and gently blended 'spiced marmalade' and 'seedless preserves'
for a bit of contrast to the background.
The quote is hand written on scraps of white card
blended with 'seedless preserves' and just a smidge of 'vintage photo'.
The winged clock and the words were fussy cut
and popped onto dimensionals.
Background clocks are Tim Holtz and ?
To finish I dragged a piece of muslin through 'seedless preserves'
and tied it through the hole on the tag.
