Time Flies

Time certainly is flying at the moment, I can't believe that it's time for another Craft-Room challenge. Thank you everyone that entered the Oriental challenge, we had some fabulous entries. It's Suzanne's turn to choose the latest challenge theme and she has chosen TIME and would love to see a Timepiece on your creations.
My DT piece for the challenge is a wall hanging.

Our sponsor for the challenge is the fabulous Crafty Individuals.

I embossed some card with a Sizzix/Alterations clock embossing folder and adhered it to a piece of moutboard. Around the edge I adhered some lacy card that I'd cut with the Sizzix/Alterations decorative strip die and on top of this I stuck some sticky backed gems, then I painted the whole thing wit some black acrylic paint and some worn penny and rich espresso DecoArt paint. When the paint was dry I went over the raised areas with some gold Rub and Buff.
I die cut the Sizzix/Alterations weathered clock out of grungeboard and painted it with the same paint as above, then I adhered the image [can't remember where I got it from] to some card and then I adhered it to the back of the clock and filled in the holes with antique pink and buttercup Pebeo Prisme Fantasy paint. When the paint was dry I adhered a pair of rusted metal wings then I adhered the clock to the mountboard base.
I coloured a bit of card with vintage photo and victorian velvet Distress ink then I stamped the Creative Expressions sentiment.
The dangly thing is one of my charity shop finds and I added some chain to hang it.

The rest of the Design Team have made some wonderful pieces so take a trip to the Craft-Room to have a look.
