Chocolate Baroque Alpha Tag Swap C and D

Well it's the second month of the Chocolate Baroque Alpha Tag Swap.

This is Tag C - Clocks and Cogs

First I stamped the clocks and cogs stamp from Chocolate Baroque Punky Romance in Versamark and embossed with clear powder.
I then used Distress Inks and Stains - Antique Linen, Weathered Wood and Faded Jeans.
I then added a little pocket watch and sentiment stamp from Craft Stamper mag.
For the wings, again from CB Punky romance, I inked my stamp with Versamark and then added DI Faded Jeans over the top, stamped then embossed.

(I know you can emboss DI, but I'm never quick enough!!)

Cut out the centre of the pocket watch and covered the centre of the Wings (there's a cog on the stamp) and attached with ribbon and jump rings. Added Sentiment - Tempus Fugit - Time Flies!

This is Tag D - Dragonflies

For this tag I used DI China Blue, Faded Jeans and Scattered Straw and lots of water!

I used the solid dragonfly stamp from Chocolate Baroque Butterfly Blush and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer ultra thick EP Malachite Fire. I then stamped the matching detail dragonfly from CB Just Butterflies with Versamark and holographic  EP onto vellum and cut out the wings. Added a little gem.

Stamped foliage from CB Wild Meadow in DI Pine Needles and added flowers with Brilliance Platinum Planet.

I received 2 gorgeous tags in the first swap
Asia from Lesley and
Blushing Blooms from Paula
I think it's fair to say we are all enjoying this challenge!

Thanks for looking
See you with E, F and G next month!

Super sentiment with the winged heart, clocks & cogs & I love that dragonfly tag. I've just received my Wild Meadow set (last week) & can see I'll be using it loads. So thrilled you were pleased with your receipts too.
I must admit I'm having a wonderful time with these tags & really learning & out of my comfort zone.

Oh how funny - I've just received your Dragonfly tag - great seeing how you created the dragonflies & the way you overlapped over the edge. That Malachite EP is amazing.
Thanks for a treat.
