This Charming Man!

I was right on track to blog every day so far. Trouble is, I forgot life, work, family, a complete lack of what on earth am I going to blog scenario reared its ugly head yesterday, and true to form, my New Year's resolution got broken!!! Hey does it matter, is the world going to fall in?  am I going to get eaten by my big shot, pinned down by my memo pins, attacked by my distress inks , if I don't make art everyday!!!????? probably!! lol So my new new resolution is to blog when I can.. hopefully more often than I did last year..so with that in mind, I liked the idea of Hels's Sunday Stamper challenge, and here is my charming man...

I used the Inspiration Jar and stamped it on Duralar , heated it gently and bent it slightly. I filled it with old clock and watch cogs , and added Phineas Pinchbeck to the top with a watch face. The Background is an Alterations music embossing folder layered onto a piece of Idea-ology Shabby Vintage. I know there really aren't charms in this.. but there is stamping!! lol
Thank you Hels for the challenge.
Have a very Creative day!

I love this, it looks like a real jar with dimension! Love the new stamp. I see he is an Apprentice Timekeeper, I am married to one of those but he is failing his apprenticeship!

Happy New Year

Jennie I love this bottle. Is this the same as what we call acetate or is this material different?
At any rate I think this is so cool.
Happy New Year from across the pond.
