Favourite movie, domino tiles and watch

Ok, I have several favourite movies, it's not just one (see this last year's post), but if you have to choose one and I have a stamp that I love and it reminds me of that movie...it's Pride and Prejudice!
So , I go small and altered a pocket watch and a couple of domino tiles:
Questa settimana su CraftBarn dovevamo scegliere il nostro film preferito, ma io ne ho una caterva di preferiti...ma proprio dovendo sceglierne uno e avendo dei timbri che un pò mi ricordano il periodo, scelgo Orgoglio e Pregiudizio! Ho alterato un orologio da tasca e delle tessere del domino:
Front:
And back:
The domino tiles, stamped, coloured with acrylic paint and covered with beeswax:
Le tessere del domino, stampate, dipinte con colori acrilici e ricoperte di cera fusa:


Materials I used:
Ranger Archival Inkpad: Coffee, Plum
Distress Inkpad: Tea Dye, Aged Mahogany
Santoro Mirabelle Lace Ribbon
White Stamping Card
Treasure Gold: Brass, Ruby
PaperArtsy Fresco Finish Paints: Beach Hut, Claret, South Pacific, Yellow Submarine, London Bus
Bees Wax Pellets: White
Kaisercraft Clear Stamps: Miss Empire
Zig Brush H20 Waterbrush: Detailer
StazOn Inkpad: Jet Black

And new prompt for the: Q & L Challenge - UNIQUE & FAME
Sometimes is so therapeutic going messy!

This is such a lovely post. I must download the PDF. I don't have a melt pot, but I so love the effect you have achieved with the beeswax. I am very tempted to get one so I can try this! You are such a clever artist! I totally agree with dear Dianne x
