Elements Of Time.................

..................For Simon Says Stamp and Show. Yes it's Monday and time for another fabulous challenge and this time we would like to see your TIME pieces.

I decorated one of Wendy's Timely Pocket Watches, adorned with Tim's Timepieces and Game Spinners. I have used the gentlemen from Tim's Steampunk set to decorate the inside of the pocket watch, stamped onto paper from BoBunny's Timepiece collection. The pocket watch was coloured with Distress Stain Aged Mahogany and stamped with the background stamp from Tim's Steampunk set. 
I masked the gentlemen to create a crowd and highlighted one gentleman with a coloured hat which I thought worked perfectly with the "The Hat Makes The Man" sentiment from Wendy Vecchi's Steampunk Art.
I have stamped the edge of my pocket watch with the background stamp from Tim's Steampunk set using black Archival Ink. I used the hand from the Art Parts Dress Forms And More set, coloured with Distress Stain Vintage Photo and stamped the background image onto my hand and added a small button. I cut three tickets from beige card using the Mini Tickets Set and stamped the background stamp onto each in Distress Ink Aged Mahogany. I added the three tickets and hand to the bottom of my pocket watch.
To complete, I added Sprockets, Timepieces and Game Spinners.

Please pop over to the Simon Says Stamp and Show blog and take a look at my fellow team members they have created some inspirational projects and remember there is also the chance to win a $50 prize from Simon Says Stamp.  I always look forward to seeing your creations each week.


Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving a comment, much appreciated.  Enjoy your week. Tracy x x

I just love your Wendy/Tim watch creation so much. All those gents look so fabulous and the pink hat is a real gem! Fabulous masking and stamping Tracy. It's so creative but real eye-catching fun too and the cluster of elements at the bottom is just perfect. A great make in every way!
