CC2C #9-Pocket Watch

We are already on week #9 of the Compendium of Curiosities Challenge over at Linda's Sudio L3! And this week, from Tim Holtz's fab book, we are on Page 35, and using his Pocket Watch... How Fun! And to spice things up, Simon Says Stamp is the sponsor, offering a Gift Certificate to one lucky recipient! 
So, you know the rules, you need to go get Tim's book to get the details. I used his Chit-chat words, a Prima Flower, and some micro beads and gilded mica flakes to add texture.  A cool ribbon and a key charm, and done! You can't see the background paper, but it is a piece of his craft resist, with peeled paint distress stain; which I thought was too dark when I did it, but evened out nicely.
Very fun! I now I've seen pocket watch display stands somewhere; I think it will look great on my desk at work. 

Now, I've posted early, for a change, so if you don't know about the wonderful challenge, you still have plenty of time to get involved! There's a new challenge every Friday.  Jump on in! Have a great week everyone.


  1. Oh well done you on getting going and doing the project. I have a pocket watch but have no clue what I want to put in it.

  2. Blinking 'eck Kim! (I nearly said something a bit stronger but I didn't think Blogger would let it be published!) You are early aren't you? !!!!
    Looking good though. I likie what you done there! A little flummaxed at the moment but I wont tell you why...yet!

  3. Fantastic watch, love the details, it will look great on a stand.

  5. Wonderful job on the pocket watch, Kim! Those colors are great-- I love the teal with the antiqued metal-- and the tiny beads are a brilliant touch. Well done!

  6. Looks great, Kim! Those tiny beads are a wonderful touch.
