Gentlemen’s Ornament or Gift Tag

Dec 1, 2011

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.

Don’t for­get to join me on my Anti­quated Col­lec­tion by Lisa M. Pace Face­book Page. We are at 180 Likes and once the page hits 200 Page Likes I’ll give away a stamp set of the win­ners choice. I’ll also be post­ing new projects to this page for inspi­ra­tion and let you know what excit­ing things are hap­pen­ing with me and Pink Per­sim­mon.

Ok now I’m off to pick out Christ­mas projects I’ve cre­ated over the years. It is time to get them listed in my online store… I need room and they are just sit­ting here col­lect­ing dust. So be watch­ing my store if you are inter­ested in pur­chas­ing some of my hand­made items.

Hugs!
