C Is For…..

Published February 29, 2012 by isisimaginings

Greetings to one & all.  Here is my third tag for the Chocolate Baroque AlphaTag swap.

C is for:

  • Create
  • Copper
  • Clay
  • Clocks

Ingredients:

  • Chocolate Baroque ‘Punky Romance’ stamp collection
  • Crackle paint – Peeled Paint
  • Distress inks – Peeled Paint, Seedless Preserves
  • Brilliance ink – Cosmic Copper
  • Copper & silver acrylic paints
  • Hearty modeling clay
  • Tim Holtz Alterations die – Regal Crest
  • TH gears, clock hands
  • Clock parts from CalicoCrafts.co.uk
  • Artistic Stamper bottle stamps
  • Hampton Art mini alphabet stamps
  • Archival ink, Versamark, shrink plastic, gesso, clear embossing powder, jump rings, ribbons





I used Sir Tim’s Crackle Resist technique for the background.  You can watch the YouTube video HERE.  I added the white circles using the lid of a small paint tube & gesso.



To make the flower clock I stamped into the modelling clay & left to dry  – Hearty clay is very light & is air dry in 24 hours.  NOTE: Brilliance inks do NOT dry on the clay.  When I realised this, I pressed the flower into my Versamark ink pad, covered it with clear EP, then heat set.  The wings behind the crest are also from the Punky Romance collection.  I stamped them with Momento London Fog & painted them with mixed silver & copper paints.





This is the second time in a week that I’ve used shrink plastic, actually the second time since I started crafting.  I’ve always been slightly wary of it, for some bizarre reason, but now that I’ve had a go, I can see lots of possibilities.  After shrinking the bottle I added a few tiny clock parts to the back with Glossy Accents.  It looks ok, but I may change it for the clear bottle.

After living with this tag for a while I covered the crest with copper acrylic paint & it looked much better.  Unfortunately, I forgot to take a photo of the tag before I mailed it, so you’ll just have to take my word for it.

Thanks for looking.

Love & light.
