tick tock.. for Frilly and Funkie DT

Well it is mid time for the new challenge over at Frilly and Funkie, which has been chosen by the lovely and talented Nancy. The details of the challenge are here from Nancy :

Hello to all! Nancy here, and this week I'm hosting the challenge for my very first time! I suppose I'm dating myself with the title of the challenge, a throwback to the fabulous 80's when Cyndi Lauper topped the charts. Your mission is to create a project using clocks and time as your theme. The winner will earn a Guest DT spot here at Frilly and Funkie, and everyone who enters will have the chance to win a $25 spending spree at The Funkie Junkie Boutique!

So here is my make :
I am still loving playing with layers so that's what happened with this tag...lots of layers and playing so here's how ...
So for the base part, I used lots of stains....and then added some trellis die cut, from black kraft core and then sanded gently to reveal some of the core. I then added this to the background. I also cut the same die from patterned clock paper from Tim paper stack and used these to fill in the gaps.
I wanted to do another double layered tag, so i took a #8 tag , covered in book paper and then lots of stains. I then added some picket fence crackle paint, tissue tape (calendars so more time related elements) and some distress ink. Finally I used some of the left over paper , from trellis die cut to top the tag with...waste not want not!
Then I added a piece of journalling ticket and some pieces of weathered clock die. I added rock candy to the clock die and when dry added walnut stain and heated . I added some of the die to the bottom and some to the top and also saved the hands to add later.x
Now for the details, the rain man , die cut from black card and covered with some translucent Wendy vecchi paste. Lots of idea-ology and also a time quote.
Here are a few close ups...more idea-ology...
I finished the top with some dyed seam binding..
Make sure you hop across here to see all my fab team mates makes and there is still time to play along .

  3. Oh Trace, this is brilliant!! I loved reading the detailed step by step! The effects you achieve with those stains is amazing, the background is so beautiful! Love what you did with the Trellis too (that bit right at the top is inspired). The clock elements look fab too! As does Rain man of course. I just love this whole tag!!

  10. Hi Trace!
    I love, love, love your tag!! I'm so glad you posted your process on your blog because I was looking at it back at the F&F, enlarging it, staring at it and wondering how you got all those amazing effects and layers. I love all the Tim products you used. The sentiment stamp is one of my all time faves. BEAUTIFUL!
    Hugs,
    Nancy
