Something Diferent.

 I haven't made anything crafty for the last few days as I just haven't felt like it. I think I must have had a bug of some sort as I just felt incredibly tired for two days and the closest I got to crafting was going to my calligaphy class on Friday afternoon. So I thought I'd show you this clock I made a little while ago and which now has pride of place on my craft room wall. The basic clock came from AnnaMarie Designs. It was my first attempt at doing anything with a wooden item. I painted it with acrylic paint -it took three coatd to get an even finish. Maybe I should have used Gesso or something first. Then I randomly stamped over it using blue and silver inkpads and a variety of stamps, and inked the edges.

The numbers were rubbed with pewter gilding wax.


So far you will be thinking that there is nothing fromStampin' Up in this project - but the stamps were all SU!

Stamps used:  En Francais, Everything Eleanor


  1. Good grief, Sue, this is outstanding!! Your finish, however you managed it, is absolutely stunning!!

  2. Oh my word Sue what a fabulous make, you must be so proud of the clock, it's absolutely beautiful.

  3. I love clocks with roman numerals, and this creation just ROCKS! Great job on this!

  4. This is beautiful, Sue! Love those gilded numbers!
