Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge is "Elements of Time". I've been itching for an opportunity to use one of the Tim Holtz idea-ology pocket watches, so this was my chance! :) It looks so authentic in real life!
I've had this wooden glass-fronted shadow frame for ages so it's nice to put it to some use finally. I started by staining the inside with black soot Distress Stain and then covering the frame and lining the compartments with designs from the DCWV Tattered Time card stack. I have the pocket watch pride of place in the centre (this piece looks so much better irl, you can really see that each section is about 3/4 inch deep).
Other elements were either stamped with Tim Holtz stamps or cut from the Tattered Time papers, then mounted on 3D foam. I added in some genuine watch faces and parts and a generous sprinkle of idea-ology sprocket gears.
Hopefully my friend likes it - she's promised not to look at my blog until she gets it! :)
Our ever-generous sponsor Simon Says Stamp is offering a $50 gift voucher as the prize again this week! The winner will be chosen at random from those who enter the challenge, so why not give it a try? At the very least why not head over to the Challenge Blog to see how the other members of the design team have interpreted this weeks theme! :)
