It's challenge #141 at THE CRAFTY PAD this week and the theme is One for the Boys. Debbie has recently released a Pocket Watch and Steampunk images over at THE CRAFTY PAD DESIGNS and the DT worked with them. I have to say, I really love these. There are so many things I'll be using them on.

Fed up with making cards, I thought I'd make a tag for a change. It's a nice six incher which I took out of a Junkitz tag book that had been in my drawer for a couple of years. I figured I'd never make the book, so just get on and use the tags, lol.

I started in Photoshop with a six inch rectangle and placed some of the digi elements where I wanted them. Doing it this way ensured that my DP would be printed exactly how I wanted it to be, (not realising of course, that most of it would be covered up, lol). I printed this onto copy paper, then stuck my piece of DP over it and ran it through the printer again. Edges were all inked with Walnut Stain distress ink.
I printed two sizes of watch faces and the ruler and inked them. The vintage image was actually from some junk mail about a lottery, so I kept the leaflet knowing I'd be able to use it. Recycling at its best eh? The black clock hands were cut on my Robo and the gorgeous reinforcement ring is a Tim Holtz Ideology bit. I found the sentiment in some more long forgotten stash and inked it and finally the watch face and little watch parts are from my stash.
