MC Jan/16 - Tim's Tags - ECD Live - Time Waits For No One

 Well I think I'm starting the year off well... and finally doing one of Tim's tag challenges. It's been a while...

It's so rare I work with black cardstock, so right off the bat he got my juices going.

I die cut the black tag (Sizzix Tim's "Tag & Bookplate").

Applied some aluminum duct tape to thin white cardstock, embossed with Sizzix "Pocket Watches" embossing folder. Painted all over with Distress acrylic daubers "Black Soot", then some "Walnut Stain"  and a bit more of the black, drying between layers, then sanding the high points. Adhered to tag.

Die cut the gears (Sizzix Tim's on the Edge "Gears") from black cardstock. Painted with the black and brown and added some "Copper". Adhered to edge of tag.

Stamped the watch with rose (Stamp It Australia "Rose Clock") using Versafine Black Onyx on white cardstock and clear embossed. Fussy cut around and colored with Prisma colored pencils, Adhered off the edge of the tag.

Die cut the Elizabeth Craft Designs word "Live" (also available on Quietfire Design HERE) from black and white cardstock. Swiped some "Picket Fence" over the black in a streaky fashion to mimic blackboard effect. Adhered it to the white die cut, off set, then on to the tag. Added the word "now" using a pointed nib and a mix of Copic White Opaque and H2º.

Swiped over the oval frame (part of the bookplate die) with the picket fence and wrote my words on the oval drop out "Time waits for no one" and doodled some dots. Adhered to tag and adhered the frame using 3D foam tape, adding two pewter colored screw brads.

Final touch added the black/silver Sari ribbon bow.
