Sunday Stampers wk 210 - Thursday 21st June

Hi Bloggers,

I have been so busy preparing  for our third workshop tonight that I haven't had much time for 'makes' - but here is my contribution to this weeks Sunday Stampers Challenge with the theme of 'Men/Male'.

When I get commissioned to make mens' cards I usually grin and bare it, I have to admit. It's usually some sport or other and usually football; so it's nice to have a free rein and stay in my comfort zone, because I do lean towards steampunk when I can, with a male card and that's not often, because outside of the craft world, people don't really 'get it'...

Anyways folks, I've made a little tag using  some measuring tape paper I had in my stash, a Kanban clock face and a little watch part added as an embellishment; some Tim Holz film strip ribbon, metallic effect ribbony stuff and Sam Poole Inventor stamps, which I stamped with Perfect Medium and embossed with black embossing powder. Then I took some Antique Photo distress ink and painted in the non embossed bits of Mr Inventor and distressed the whole of the rest of the tag...what fun!

Thanks for can enter the challenge at

and this is my contribution!
