Singing Bird Clock by Mandy C



Clock Die Cuts x 2
Liquid Pearls/Stickles


·       Cut a piece of white card slightly larger than your clock die cuts. Spray with the Funky Fuchsia  and After Midnight Dylusions sprays. It’s a fairly dark background. If you don’t like it so dark you can use water on it and kitchen roll… it will remove some of the colour. However, I left it as it was as you don’t see a huge amount of the background colour. Dry with a heat tool.

·       Take your first clock and spray with Vibrant Turquoise, dry. Then emboss using the music background stamp and the embossing powder. I then found the Turquoise was too vibrant for the background piece of card, so I sprayed it with the Lilac Night which darkened it. Dried it with a heat tool, rubbed over some of the white paint, removed some of it with a baby wipe. Finally I sprayed with the Heirloom Gold Perfect Pearl spray. Dry. Put to one side.

·       Take your second clock and spray with a similar palette to the background piece. Dry.

·       When your turquoise clock is fully dry, adhere to the background card and trim to the clock. Glue the second clock into place so you can also see the turquoise clock. Leave to one side.

·       Stamp your bird image onto some card. Colour with watercolour pencils, using complimentary colours. Once dry add some gold gel pen and either some Stickles or Liquid Pearls. Once dry glue into the centre of the clock.

·       Attach a stand to the back of the clock. 

I think this would make a lovely gift for someone ;-)
