Tick Tock - It's Tea Time!

I had some play time at my crafting desk today and came up with a tag for both Simon Says Challenges - Tick Tock and Tag It!

As my heat tool broke down today it was "back to the roots"...but I honestly enjoyed the simplicity of this make - focussing on the colours mainly - and I also enjoyed drawing and colouring the tea cup, the sugar cubes, spoon and quote.

I used some die cut sizzix parts on my make such as the alarm clock and the paper lace border at the bottom (which was a gift that came with a swap! Thank you, Alison!). The tag itself was die cut from Kraft Core and dry embossed with a cogs and gears folder and then blended with DI "gathered twigs".

The bookplate was a left over die cut too and I fixed it to the tag using two tiny brads.

The tea cup, spoon and sugar cubes were hand drawn and coloured using Distress markers. Then I cut them out and fixed them with sticky foam pads. The alarm clock received some scribbling with a white gel pen to add some texture.

I used the "handle" of the alarm clock to fix the ribbon to instead of using the tag's hole. Done!

I hope you like it (as it rather differs from my "usual" makes)! Thanks for stopping by!

  7. ja, liebe Claudia, dieses tag unterscheidet sich wahrlich von deinen anderen arbeiten. aber ich bin der
    Meinung, dass auch beim kreativsein unerschiede oder kurze Veränderungen sein müssen.
    wunderbar ist dein tag geworden - es ist viel "vereint" drauf.
