Tinted GP Clock Works Tag


Following my PA Christmas Cracker project I'd mixed up far too much GP as you do, so added some blue paint to the greens and put them through a couple of T!m stencils onto a large black tag.


I then sanded the whole thing back.


And finally added treasure gold and metallic pan pastels. Unfortunately this isn't a true representation of the tag, it's much brighter IRL but the weather these last couple of days has been so dark, wet and gloomy that I couldn't get a good photo. I tried using the daylight lamp but it was too reflective.

Wow Sam, that's a brilliant effect. Love the metallics and so hoping I can get a project done for the challenge. You have made such good use of your break!

Another lovely make! This weather is such a pain for photography, isn't it? I think lots of people must be getting very frustrated with it. Julie Ann xx

The addition of the Pan Pastels and Treasure gold really enhances the look. Wish I'd though of that!

Hi I'm Sam, 43, birthday in October - Any piece of art gratefully rec'd - Thanks. OH, Martin, been together 23 years and still no plans to get married!!! We love spending time with our pupster, especially when the weather is dry and we get to take him to the woods. I love any sort of crafting and would say that I am adventurous with new materials. We love going skiing in any winter resort, but mainly the States or Canada, they have better snow!! We lost our first beardie, Max, August 2006 at a ripe old age of 14 and 1/4. Since then Frazzie has come along, he is now 6 years and 7 months old and is still a little Bugger, Bugger!!! Unfortunately in December 2008 we lost Alfie at 14 months old after only having a short time of 7 weeks loving and caring for him. He found a good buddie in Fraz and loved him to bits.
