On the Wings of Time....


Recently I bought a round, black plastic clock from the Euro Shop in Lintorf. There was even a battery with it! As it costs more to buy a DIY clock, this was a bargain.
Yesterday I altered it with structure pastes in gold satin and pearl white, roughing it up with a spatula and a sponge, and then heat dried it to make it *boil and bubble*. When it was completely dry, I rubbed some *Stazon* timber brown over it, before adding *Time*, placing the letters on the four strategic points. I then added some wings (Melissa Francis) which I rubbed with Inca Gold and timber brown *Stazon* again. The little circlet of flowers in the middle has been cut and embossed with a Cuttlebug die, adorned with four small, red gemstones, to match the second hand.
That was it. It was very difficult to take a picture, as the light is not ideal this morning, so I will try to get a better pic later on.
I am entering this into 2 challenges:
Alter it Monthly - theme *Time*

And
Daring Cardmakers - Pound shop pretties
although I know it is not a card!

Thanks for looking, and have a great day!

P.S. The clock even works, and is ticking merrily away on my living room wall!
