Good afternoon folks, hope your bank holiday weekend has got off to a good start. The weather is a bit iffy here but at least its not snowing so I shouldn't complain lol. We've got a new challenge starting over at No Matter Which Challenges and this month our theme is 'Things with Wings' .
This month our lucky winner will receive a fab prize from My Creative Classroom so pop on over to the challenge blog and find out more, while you're there check out my teamies fab projects too as they are soooo talented! I've done a couple of courses with My Creative Classroom and they have been fab, so don't miss out on a chance to win.
Anyway back to my project, I've used a cog clock from Indigo Blu, primed with gesso and then created a background with acrylic paints in pastels colours. I stamped the flowers and butterflies, masking as I went along to create a circle around the clock and then masked them all to stamp the numbers. I've stamped the numbers and the cog design in the centre with Flitter Glu and gilded them with Royal Peacock gilding flames (the hands of the clock also got the same treatment.
I coloured the flowers with Promarkers and then used Broken China distress ink and a water brush around the flowers to give them a bit of dimension. You can see the detail a bit better in this pic:
I'm entering this project in the following challenges:
Crafts and Me: floral frenzy
