As promised in my July 4th post, here is my second Studio 490 pocket watch -- this time in steampunk style. I made it for GC Spicy Supply Challenge #110: Gears, Cogs, and Watch Bits.
While I was at my favorite art store (Prairie Art Stamps) Saturday, I geared up for this project by looking at all the bits and pieces behind the counter. I settled on this very cool brass chain for the pocket watch. I already had the Tim Holtz gears and well as a packet of gears from a monorail adapter that dh donated to my ephemera collection. I added a long shank gold snap and a brass "T" for Thomas the Time Traveler.
Our Gingersnapper sponsor this month is Dezinaworld. I used her lovely image of the man holding his stop watch.
I layered it on top of a clock face that I found at the Graphics Fairy. (YAY me for learning how to layer a ping file on top of a jpeg file!)
I must remember to link this to Brag Monday.
I painted the watch with Metallic Gold Adirondack Paint Dabber. I stamped a small scroll on top with Versa Mark and heat embossed with gold powder.
I hope you're mechanically minded and will link your creations to GC110 by August 7th. Challenge details and inspiring art from the Gingers and Guests are found at Gingersnap Creations. There will be 10 Ginger Gems announced on August 9th. One randomly drawn winner from the qualifying participants for this challenge will become our new Home Page Artist for a week as well as winning a voucher for use in the Dezinaworld store worth $20.00 US. So get in gear!
(This leaves me just the third pocket watch to complete in an Alice in Wonderland theme.)
