I figured I would start with a simple design to get the technique down. How cute would this be on a Christmas gift?
Then it was time to really play. And here's what I came up with...
I don't know if you can tell from the photo, but the image is stamped on the tag and then raised twice. I cut the main watch and wings out for the first raised layer. I just cut the wings out for the second raised layer. The watch face has real watch hands and a gear. Various gears and springs complete the tag.
This was a fun technique to try. I can see trying it on cards just using text to make it appear more like a chalkboard.
Have you tried this technique? What did you think?
