But it doesn't just have to be used for a male theme, change the colour and it could be used to hold family photo's, wedding's or birth and because it is a Bigz die it will cut out quite thick card or Grunge Board.
I also made a pocket watch and decorated the inside with Olde Curiosity Shoppe papers, the flying pig and star fish have been cut out and raised on little foam pads. I fitted a acetate cover as the glass part. When it's not being photographed it stands nicely on a mini easel.
The bezel of the watch has been embossed with a Tim Holtz Texture Fade and coloured with Treasure Gold highlighting the different levels.
This card has been stamped using the Crafty Individuals Steampunk Stamp CI 305. The pocket watch frame is embossed with the Diamond Plate and Riveted Metal Folder Sizzix folder.
The Dial is stamped using Paper Artsy Hot Pick 1107 and coloured with Tea Dye Distress ink. The back ground is stamped using the same Crafty Individual stamp but I used Bundled sage for a change and I was pleased with the colour.
With a bit of luck I might be able to produce some better photo's after attending one of our workshop's where Jamie is going to be explaining how to use your camera to get the best out of it. So if you have a nice camera and fancy a fun packed weekend come and join us. After we have taken some photo's we will be turning them into a canvas, so check out the workshops here.
Love to see you
