April 2015 Clock Challenge


Welcome to this month’s Clarity Stamp Blog Challenge.

The theme is clocks, this is my take on the challenge and I hope you like it.

Don’t forget to drop in and see all the lovely art created by the design team at


Please also have a look at the wonderful creations the Clarity Crafters made for last month’s challenge.

Thanks to all who entered the Challenge, hope you enjoyed it and to the winner and top 5, congratulations.

Don’t forget Barbara is on Create and Craft this weekend. I will be watching, hope you will be too.

For this clock I started with one of the large square canvas, I marked the centre and drilled a hole

for the hands to come through.

Next I painted it with blue metallic paint and left dry. Then using paper arty crackle I spread a layer of it over sections of the painted canvas. I left it dry for a few minutes, then painted over with white acrylic pain. I have to say

I have tried using several products for creating a crackle effect but this is fantastic.

Next I stamped the broken line, which I thought looks like stitching from the journaling set all round the edge of the canvas. The ovals from the numbers set, I only used 4 as I did’nt want it too cluttered.

I then stamped in the numbers, let dry and used glossy accents to highlight them.

I then stamped the craft o’clock from the letter kit.

Next I stamped and coloured in with distress inks, embossed others from

the re-mountable sets. They are so useful, love them.

So from stitching, to writing, cooking to gardening and flower arranging, then onto family time and painting

all covered in these sets.

I also used the girl from the mother and girl stencil, masking off the umbrella, as

for around 9 o’clock as this is usually the last of family time in the evening.

I then added the clock mechanism.

It was finished.

I have included a photo below of everything I used and hope you have enjoyed the step by step.

Let me know what you think and I hope to see your creation soon.
