For the Men in your Life


Hi yes its that time again its the Creative Card Crew 


new challenge and the theme for this challenge is Masculine and our sponsor for this challenge is
       They give a $15 to spend on items throughout their store.
I decide to make a clock. I used the cog mdf base which I bought from Indigo Blu. 
I used white Gesso which the Scrapping Center stock and painted the base on the back and front, when the first layer was dry I applied another but this time I stamped it with medium bubble wrap while it was damp and this removes some of the paint. I let it dry overnight I then used an assortment of acrylic paints to distress the clock with a nearly dry stencil brush gold and green so it took on a verdigris look. Check out the site for their paint stock. Once it was dry I used a CD to draw around the center of the clock. This helps you position your numbers for the clock. the cog has actually 60 teeth so once you have marked 12,3,6 and 9 you can the work out where to stamp the other numbers.
    Nearly finished stamping

 
Roman numerals from Indigo Blu


Once I had stamped the numbers I then used and assortment of Tim Holtz stamps (Check out the site) , Indigo Blu and my Visible Image  stamps to create cogs and messages   within the spare area. Don't forget to rub away the pencil circle .


Here is the finished working clock with its clock mechanism added.
I made it for my mum's partner ( they aren't married so he isn't really my Step-Dad)
Thanks for calling by, let me know you have visited

Hi

Wow, what an absolutely awesome project!! Just perfect for the men in our lives.

Unfortunately though, as no paper is actually used (please correct me if I am wrong) it is not a valid entry in to the Make It Monday linky party.

Really enjoyed coming to check it out though.

Michelle :o)
