ONE OF A KIND

I am showcasing the fabulous HOLOGE stamp from Katzelkraft this week to create a masculine tag.
The background of my tag has been created applying Wendy Vecchi's Crackled Texture Paste and then colouring with Gathered Twigs Distress Ink to age.
I have then stamped the clock image on top of the crackle, I love this effect, the crackle showing through the image really adds to the aged feel of my piece. I have also added an arrow coloured with Ginger Alcohol Ink and the letter 'T' for time, coloured with a touch of Archival Ink.
I have added a die cut pediment to the top of the tag, again aged with Cracked Texture Paste and coloured with Distress Ink. For added dimension I have included a Watch Face added to a bottle cap all coloured with Alcohol Ink.
Remnant Rubs add a further layer of interest.

There is some fabulous artwork from my fellow team members on the Katzelkraft Blog, why not pop over and take a look. Katzelkraft also deliver to the UK and you can find their shop HERE.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Tracy x x

Totally fabulous! This is full of wonderful techniques and ideas and such a great creation for a male: they are often so difficult to create for without being cliched! This is perfect! I love it! Julie Ann xx
