Captain Hook - Octopode Factory

Well I am definitely that Friday feeling this week.
 I hope you are all gearing up for a good weekend?
 Today a bit of news. As you may have seen I have been doing a few bits for Lily over at the Octopode Factory and I am very happy to say I have been invited to be part of the DT over there.
 On Lily's blog today she is having a Captain Hook shout out, head on over to see what the other DT members have created,It is all to do with a TV show called Once Upon A Time, follow the link to find out about the show, I have to say I had never heard of it but I do like the sound of it from the write up.
 Now Captain Hook is not the only character available from Peter Pan, the whole family is available for download at the Octopode Etsy shop..

For my tag I printed Captain Hook out and coloured him with Copics and clear embossed him twice. He was glued on to my mount board tag which has been stamped with a cover the card map stamp in Sepia archival ink and then distressed with vintage photo and walnut stain distress inks.
The clock face and hands are from Mr Tim Holtz as is the key ring, the anchor charm was added to the end of the key ring and attached to the tag through a metal eyelet.I finished by adding the 'tick,tick,tick' stamped with a small alphabet stamp.
 The second pic is just me playing around with different finishes on an app on my phone.

As always a big welcome to my newest followers and a big thank you and welcome back to those that have stopped by before. It really does mean a lot having you here.
  Ill be back on Sunday with a couple of the more feminine images.
Also a quick reminder that over at the Octopode Factory Challenge Blog there is still time to play in the Music themed challenge.
It would be great to see you over there. You do not need to use an Octopode image but it is great if you do and I think you will be entered into the prize draw twice ;)

I would like to enter this into the challenge over at Copic Marker Europe they are having a 'Boy's Aloud' challenge, male images only.
