Today I have shut myself in my craft room to have a little play and also finish off 1 or 2 ( or 3)
projects I have had on the go for a while and trying to get my head around Christmas cards for the family..........not much luck there!!! One project I did finish is this altered CD clock using my new Sheena Douglas A Little Bit Oriental stamps sets, I treated myself to all three A5 plates in the series as I just love Oriental anything.
This project fits in with the challenge at Craft a Scene which is Trees
Firstly I inked a white circle of card with bundled sage and dusty concord ink lightly at first by only dragging across the card with cut and dry foam, I darkened areas later as I added the stamps. I used the bridge (Oriental Silhouettes) and built up the colour around the edges and behind the bridge, with water I dragged some colour into the bridge. Next the water (Kio and Waterlillies) was stamped in dusty concord and I painted the lilly pads with bundled sage and shaded with dusty concord. Next came the trees ( Oriental Silhouettes)... aren't they wonderful love this stamp.......in Forest Green Stazon.
Lastly I added two Cranes....well that's what I think they are! The numbers are black plastic from the Tim Holtz stable but sorry have no idea what they are called as I have no packaging and have had them ages......they are sticky on the back but I also used glossy accents to make sure they stayed stuck!
I sanded around the edge of the card after I had stuck it to the CD with glossy accents and added dusty concord to them, lastly I added clock mechanism and voila I have a lovely clock to hang in my bedroom.
thanks for looking
'till next time
