A Clock for a friend





Here is a wooden clock that I altered for Dan for his Birthday, he is such a special friend it was very hard to know what to make him, I knew he likes practical presents so hoped this what fit the bill :-) for some strange reason I even decorated the back!!!!

I have done the front with gesso first then dabbers and distress inks, I stamped the border stamps and clock faces with versafine then quickly rubbed them of to give the faded look ( well tried to) the stamp in the middle is a great stamp by Paperbag Studios, if you click on the image you will be able to read what it says, the words are using an alphabet set and the numbers are grungeboard, did not do the norm as I wanted it to be different, the back of the clock again is using ghesso first then the dabbers, the scene is made using stamps from Tim Holtz and Stampscape, hope you like this I actually really enjoyed making it xx

We also had a brilliant day yesterday shopping and celebrating Dans Birthday, he recieved some fantastic gifts from everyone.
