A Christmas MDF Clock!

Good Evening!

Wow, the storm has just subsided here and the entire time it was thundering and lightening, I was preoccupied with this gorgeous MDF clock from Inky Doodles!

I don't know if you caught Sarah's show earlier today, but it inspired me to dig out the clock that's been gathering dust for the past few weeks and put it to good use! So... here's my creation:

I've used some of our upcoming stamp sets which launch at 1pm on Tuesday on this - above, I covered the base layer in kraft card and stamped a snowflake stamp (from the Swirly Tree stamp set) with versamark, then I embossed it with clear to darken the snowflake a little. I wanted something subtle, that wasn't printed from a CD.

The next layer, I used Creative Expressions Double Sided Sticky Sheets to cover the entire layer in Treasure glitter! The next layer used some burgundy printed backing paper from the new Simply Christmas CD and then finally, I repeated the sticky-sheet step to add glitter to the roof! The circular clock piece, I covered again with burgundy paper and added pearls to the pre-marked holes for the numbers.

My 'pendulum' is a couple of the MDF tags that come in the set (I have LOTS left over too!) and these have been distressed using Gathered Twigs, stamped a bauble in Memento, heat embossed all over with clear powder and added some Treasure glitter with a quickie glue pen. I tied these on with a bit of garden string too!

The large floral decorations are from the Striped Delights stamp set, I stamped and embossed in Cosmic Shimmer Bright Gold and glittered, added detail to the stamens or coloured with 'Ruby' promarker, to create the different coloured flowers.

The baubles are from the Decorative Baubles stamp set which launches on Tuesday, with these I heat embossed them in Cosmic Shimmer Bright Gold again and coloured with the Ruby promarker, then added a sprinkle of glitter!

Lots of pearls were added too, plus a sentiment from the Swirly Tree stamp set (O Christmas Tree)!

I hope you like it!

Have a fabulous weekend,
