Timepiece Artist Trading Block

Today I have created an Artist Trading Block for Katzelkraft which I would also like to enter into the Craft Stamper Make It Take It July Challenge.
The front of my Artist Trading Block uses the Chrono Plate which I have stamped with VersaMark Ink and then embossed with clear embossing powder, applying Broken China Distress Ink over the top of the embossing which resists the ink. I then applied touches of Walnut Stain Disress Ink around the edges for some contrast. Remnant Rubs have also been added to the front for added interest. The ATB has been added to a large wooden spool painted with Broken China Distress Paint and again Remnant Rubs added .
Opposite sides of my ATB have been decorated with the clock face from the So Special Plate, again using the resist technique and I have also included a Remnant Rub and pointing finger image.
More clock faces stamped to the top of my ATB along with a letter 'T' for TIME, brass clock charm and ticket which I have aged with Distress Ink, adding creases to a few areas to add further to the aged feel.
I also included a pocket watch Art Part to the top of the ATB for added dimension, adding vintage watch parts to the centre and then pouring clear UTEE into the centre, adding touches of wax to the edges.
Continuing with the clock/time theme around the opposite side along with an aged ticked and Remnant Rubs.
Thanks so much for stopping by. Tracy x x
