Clock Canvas

This was an 8" x 8" canvas that I picked up last week at the Lincoln show.  I coloured the background with various shades of green distressed stains.  I used my SG paints too.  I stamped in timber brown using my new Hampton Art alphabet letter background stamp and I stamped tim's circles in mulch brown eco-friendly paint.  I also used cactus green stazon on the scratches stamp.  I used rust lumiere paint to colour the wings, the clock face and the charm.  Behind the clock I put a piece of vellum, previously scrunched and used a brad to attach the hands.  The wings were run through an embossing folder and coloured with lumiere metallics rust and olive green.  

Simon Say's are asking for wings this week.

You certainly create such wonderful texture on your projects - I think I have some wings somewhere -running them through a cuttlebug is a great idea.

That's scrummy, Sam - really love it. Gorgeous colours and lots of interest and texture. We made canvas clocks at our last Stamp Camp but we used CDs on the canvas, so not as good as yours. Lovely x

That is fabulous - love anything to do with clocks/time or words to do with it. Love the background - looks very textural.
