Christmas Clock!

Yes, its another clock made up from one of the gorgeous Tando blanks.  I think I have now made up 7 of these hahaha.   But this time its as a member of the Design Team for ~The Craft Barn Blog~.  We were asked to use Crafty Individual stamps on our clocks, especially the clock faces that they have produced especially to go with the Tando Clocks.

Splodge the lake & white acrylics onto the tando clock bases, except the centre where the clock face will go - keep this smooth. Stamp & emboss the clock face with silver and then add some silver Inca Gold to the rest. Add Transparent Viva Croco to all but the clock face.

For the background apply watered down sand & lake acrylic, blending as you go. Stamp & white emboss some snowflakes.

Watercolour the Crafty Individual stamps, clear emboss then cut out images. As you stick the background behind the 'windows' tuck the images in. Glue all the chipboard pieces together.

Hold them together with clips until dry. Paint the Tando Snowflake flourish & the Tando Sledge as shown and add transparent Viva Croco to the snowflakes & the sledge. Attach matching fibres around the edges.

Yes, I know its only August but Christmas crafting has to start somewhere hahaha!
