Tando Clocks week: Karen

How about making a clock as a heirloom for the Christmas holidays, that you would take out year after year and / or give away. 
Not sure if she will give it away, but Karen sure made a gorgeous clock in non traditional colours (as in not green and read). 
Here's how Karen made her clock. 

Splodge the lake & white acrylics onto the tando clock bases, except the centre where the clock face will go - keep this smooth. Stamp & emboss the clock face with silver and then add some silver Inca Gold to the rest. Add Transparent Viva Croco to all but the clock face. 

For the background apply watered down sand & lake acrylic, blending as you go. Stamp & white emboss some snowflakes. 

Watercolour the Crafty Individual stamps, clear emboss then cut out images. As you stick the background behind the 'windows' tuck the images in. Glue all the chipboard pieces together. 

Hold them together with clips until dry. Paint the Tando Snowflake flourish & the Tando Sledge as shown and add transparent Viva Croco to the snowflakes & the sledge. Attach matching fibres around the edges.
