Texture this time!

Good evening Lovelies! What a fab day for the Olympics! Not a huge sports fan, but its always nice to hear we're getting medals especially golds! 
Tonight's make is one for the men, I am entering this for the DT call challenge for Creative Expressions http://blog.creative-expressions.uk.com/2012/08/2012-creative-expressions-design-team.html the theme is "texture" I'm really excited about this because I love CEx products as you can probably tell by my posts, so I started with 8x8 cream scalloped base I inked the edges with Walnut stain DI, I matted with Tim Holtz paper which again I inked the edges, i ripped the edges and really scrumpled up Glassine craft paper and ripped little tears all along one edge and curled it, using some fawn card I stamped using CEx stamps with Walnut stain and Vintage photo DI randomly and inked with vintage photo, then ran it through my GC using a clock EF, I inked with walnut stain over the embossed bits, scrumpled it up a bit to create a Vintagey effect, matted that onto the glassine paper, I stamped the sentiment with WS masked then stamped cogs and clock hands, inked with VP, I had to highlight the text with white gel pen as it got a bit lost in the background, inked and rolled to create a scroll, stamped and cut out the watches and fob chain and decoupaged them. It's rather busy isn't it? Thank you for visiting xx
