Thank you for joining me for the last Pootler’s Design Team Challenge. I would like to say a big Thank You to my upline Sam Hammond for giving me the amazing opportunity to be a designer, I have had so much fun creating projects with the stamp set you chose for us.
This is also the last week for you to enter the Crafting Forever Clear Mount Stamp Set Giveaway, no purchase necessary, see details below.
I made 4 projects for Sam’s challenge and todays project is definitely my favourite. I have had this Art Deco Clock Face for quite a while, I bought a few of them (from everycraftsapound.co.uk) to decorate and give as gifts.
I gave the clock face a coat of Mod Podge to seal it and then added 2 coats of white acrylic paint. I then added a coat of Copper Metallic Acrylic Paint that I ‘borrowed’ from my husband and dabbed the metallic paint with a piece of sea sponge to give it a slight texture.
I love using embossing paste on my projects and the new Shimmery White embossing paste has so much sparkle it’s stunning. For the focal point in the centre of the clock face I used the medallion mask in the Pattern Party Decorative Masks and the Shimmery White embossing paste.
The photo below shows the amount of sparkle in the embossing paste. This isn’t a great photo but it was the only way I could show the amount of glitter in the paste.
I stamped the images with Memento ink and coloured them with Spectrum Illustrator Alcohol Markers. I used Fast Fuse to adhere the pen onto the long hand and the dolly peg/bakers twine onto the short hand.
I added a medium sized Clear Faceted Gem to the centre of the clock hands and instead of adding numbers I added large Clear Faceted Gems. When the light catches it the amount of sparkle on this clock is amazing.
This is my first go at making a clock and I love it, normally ticking clocks drive me mad but I’m going to put this up in my craftroom. It was fun to make and it was easier than it looks, if I can make it anyone can.

*When designing a project or when I CASE a project I always use my cheap cardstock to make a prototype before making it with my Stampin’ Up! cardstock. I do check the measurements I add to my blog posts but when typing lots of measurements mistakes can be made. When making any project I recommend making it first with cheap cardstock before using your best cardstock.*
