Good Wednesday morning.  I stepped a little out of my scene and flower “box” today to create a fun project using the Impression Obsession Pocket Watch die set and It’s About Time stamp set.

I started by cutting the watch and buckle and hand cutting the watch bands out of a gold foil sheet. I embossed the bands to give them the appearance of a gold mesh.  I attached the buckle to the band and attached the bands to the watch to complete the assembly.

I creating the background by stamping watch faces multiple times with versa and embossing with gold embossing powder. I wanted to keep track of where I stamped the images and not over stamp too much so I did this in stages until I was happy with the background. I attached the sentiment to the frame base and then attached the watch with mounting tape and rolled glue dots.  I love how the band is slightly curved to add dimension and interest.

Here’s a closer view.  You can click on the photos to see an even larger view.

OK.  Does the watch look real?  I sure think so.  What a fun set to play with.
