tick tock...i altered a clock!

Wow...i'm usually complaining that its too dark to photograph anything well...*i need some daylight*...but today...i think its actually a bit too sunny...and its overexposed and washed out all the colours!! i'd rather be grumpy with sunshine than without it though, eh? ;) i love this simple clock blank that is available at Bubbly Funk {just click here if you want to buy one!} and i thought it would be ideal in my craftroom...so i've used up some scraps of pp and bits and bobs in soft colours that go with my room. the hands were black which i didn't love...so i coloured them pearly white with a paint dabber and let them dry before attaching them...i created my clock face background by taking a pale pp and stamping over it and adding stickers and rubons and a large paper flower cutout, added some number stickers and dots, then smeared the whole lot in transparent Viva Decor crackle paint to give it a slightly glossy, sealed finish with a barely there crackle look. as a finishing touch, i ran a like of crystal stickles all around the edge for a bit of extra definition and added a sparkly gem sticker to the top of the hand shaft to finish it off nicely :) another fairly quick and simple project...must be something in the air at the moment...or maybe i'm just busy...anyho...i have hanging baskets to water...so i must be away...ttfn!

Quick? It would take me all day to create something like this! I love it though - where did you get those numbers? The colour combo is stunning...
