It is Wednesday already - this week is whizzing past! And cos it is Wednesday there is a new theme for the Pocket Challenge. First of all, thank you to those of you who joined in with the challenge last week, I have enjoyed hopping over to your Blogs and looking at your lovely Pockets.
This week the theme is Watches.
Here is the template for you to use as a guide to make your Pocket:
Once you have made the base template for your Pocket, you can decorate it in any way, just add a watch or a clock to the Pocket - inside, outside, tis up to you....and please make a post here to say you have made yours this week and also add a link to where you are showing it. :O))
I have made mine using some plain cardstock which I coloured with Scattered Straw and Vintage Photo Distress Inks. I used the fabulous clock and watch stamps from The Artistic Stamper, masking each image as I stamped so they give the look of being piled on top of each other.
The sentiments are from Penny Black and Stampers Anon (Tim Holtz collection) and the flourishes are by Basic Grey.
I added some little watchy bits and stuck them down with Glossy Accents - I wanted to achieve the effect of it looking like the watch was falling apart and the bits were tumbling out :O))
The closure is a Game Spinner from the Tim Holtz Idea-ology range..... best of all, you can get the watch stamps, the watch bits and faces, Distress Inks, Glossy Accents and the Idea-ology range from The Artistic Stamper.....fab eh? Shopping under one roof!!
I hope you like this theme, it is a nice easy one and I am really looking forward to seeing what you all come up with....so I will be "watching" out for your replies *groans...I know, I can't help myself* In fact, I will be Pocket watching ......ah, I think I will stop now and let you all get on with your crafting!! :O))
Thanks for looking!!
