What a beautifully, warm and sunny week here in the UK. It has helped to kickstart my crafting mojo which has been somewhat missing lately :o(
Today's post is a shabby chic clock which I have made for my craft room.
The wooden clock blank before I started!
Wooden clock blank
Victorian Velvet Distress Ink
Crimson Copper Brilliance Ink
Cream Acrylic paint
Cuttlebug butterfly die and embossing folder
Flourish stamp (from Sheena Douglass Paint Fusion range)
Butterfly text stamp (from Dimension Fourth)
Pearls and pearl hat pins
Vintage seam binding
The clock face has been made by blending distress ink over white card and overstamping with the flourish and text stamps using the Brilliance ink pad. Pearls have been used to replace numbers on the clock face.
The frame has been inked with the distress ink and then dry-wiped with the acrylic paint to give it a vintage/shabby chic look. Small pearls have been added all around the outer edge.
The butterflies have been made using embossing metal, cut and embossed using a cuttlebug die and embossing folder and then painted cream.
A bow and hat pins were added to complete the look.
