First Finished Mixed Media Canvas With Loads of Idea'ology Part 2

Well this weeks challenge for the purple team at Eclectic Ellapu is It's a Mans World . . . So I finally pulled out all the bits and pieces I have been collecting plus a few more (like the buttons) and sat down and finished my first mixed media canvas.
I started this a while ago, here's the link to the original post for the base. I played and played and just couldn't get it to gel the way I wanted an packed everything up. But I needed something manly for this weeks challenge and as I haven't been feeling the best I was a bit short on ideas . . .
So grabbed this and decided tonight was the night it got finished! As you can see there are Tim Holtz Ideo'logy pieces by the boatload, wings, accoutrements, game spinners, cogs and gears, mini cogs and gears, the lock and key, word band and muse token. Oh and of course the mini film strip, it's the first project I have used it on and was one of the first things I knew was going on this canvas. Love that stuff :)
The playing cards are from Kaisercrafts Sears & Son range. A poker chip I coloured with a brown Sharpie. There is a domino and mini word (dream) that I inked with brown alcohol inks. There is some Hampton Art twine in brown tying on the word band. I am not sure where the time word came from I just know although it's thick it is super light (have a set of words like this?) and a random playing card charm.
I made this for my man who happens to like playing poker, hence the playing cards and poker chip. He also like steam punky type things (good thing I like steam punk and have been collecting). It was supposed to be finished a long time ago but better late then never right?
All dies are Sizzix Tim Holtz dies, weathered clock, cogs and gears, mini cogs and the cog boarder and have all been cut with either grungepaper or grungeboard. Around the edges you can also see some well inked tissue tape :)
I hope you enjoyed my first canvas.
Happy Scrappin'
