For the third installment of a medal swap I'm in, the theme was anything with wings.  My medal is called Time Flies.

Paint a piece of grunge paper with metallic gold acrylic paint.  Stamp winged watch face twice on painted grunge paper with tuxedo black Memento ink.  Cut out images.  Paint back of one image with gold paint.

Stamp winged watch face with tuxedo black on off white paper.  Cut out the watch face only.

On flat gemstone bead, stamp TIME FLIES with gold pigment ink and emboss with metallic gold powder.  Put head pin through bead and make a loop at the top.

Cut a 4 in. piece of woven ribbon and fold in half.  Gather fold into a point and stitch the point down with black thread then sew through the loop of the gemstone piece and the ribbon point several times to secure gemstone to ribbon.  Tie a knot
in thread and secure knot with a drop of glue.

Place double sided tape between ribbon halves and press together.

Place winged watch face with painted back down first and cover with glue.  Press top 3/8 in. of ribbon on watch face.  Put some glue on the part of ribbon on watch face.  Place the other watch face on top of this.  Press down and clamp with spring clothespins until dry.

Glue the off white watch face to the gold watch face.  Cover watch face with a round clear acrylic sticker.

With finger, spread diamond glaze on stamped gemstone to give it some shine.  Glue a pin back to the back of the winged watch face.
