Gentlemen’s Ornament or Gift Tag
I love the detail you get from the Gentlemen’s Puff stamp in the Antiquated Collection ~ Fine and Dandy Stamp Set. Each fine line in the Puff can be seen and it makes me so happy. This project can be used as an ornament for your tree to represent the men in the family or attached to a gift and used as a gift tag. The back is covered with the blank margin from a piece of vintage book page.
I used two Maya Road Rectangle Foundation chipboard pieces as the base for this project. One complete rectangle front was covered with vintage sheet music. Then just the outer piece of the second rectangle was stamped using the fir tree stamp from Little Red Wagon by Pink Persimmon. I used Jet Black Archival Ink to stamp the branches all around the frame, the pocket watch on the sheet music and the Gentlemen’s Puff onto Grungepaper. I then inked the Puff using Festive Berries Distress Ink and Evergreen Bough over the stamped branches. Platinum Stickles accents the tie tack on the Puff.
The outside edge of the pocket watch is accented with brown pearlescent watercolors and the inside face is covered with glossy accents. Adding the glossy accents to the face of the pocket watch really gives the face dimension. Once the glossy accents was dry I attached the Gentlemen’s Puff to the center of the rectangle using foam squares.
I used a Krylon 18K Gold Leafing Pen to accent the inner and outer area of the stamped chipboard frame then using a strong liquid adhesive I attached the stamped frame on top of the remaining altered rectangle piece. Once they were dry I then took the Krylon pen an accented the outer edge of the frame.
I created the hanger or tie using red & white baker’s twine and attached it to the top of the project using a strong liquid adhesive.
