Preparing the wood:Paint the Round Clock with Neopaque White paint. Allow to dry and give second coat. Sand surface if needed or desired. Apply a fairly thick coat of Distress Crackle around the edges of the clock as well as a couple of inches in from the top edge on the surface and allow to dry naturally.
Use the blending tool to rub on Brushed Corduroy and Dusty Concord to highlight the crackle. Rub off the excess with a paper towel.
Preparing the paper:Cut High Tea and white cardstocks to fit clock using Spellbinders Grand Circles as shown.
Stamp Quietfire Design quotation using VersaMagic Purple Hydrangea. When dry use blending tool to shade in some Tattered Rose colour.
Stamp small butterfly using Purple Hydrangea ink, then cut the image out.
Layer the circles using Be Creative double-sided tape. Find the center of the layered circles and punch a hole the same diameter as the clock hole. Attach the cardstock layers to the clock surface.
Cut four tiny butterflies from the Nestabilities Butterflies Two. Leave the diecut in the die and using the die as a stencil, color the exposed paper with Purple Hydrangea ink.
Color the hands of the clock movement with a few drops of Eggplant Alcohol Ink. Leave the second hand uncolored. Allow to dry.
Following the instructions on the package, assemble the clock movement with the clock. Make sure the hanger is oriented so the quotation on the front reads correctly. Punch a hole in the butterfly cut-out and slide it over the shaft of the movement. Do not glue or tape it down. Curl the wings slightly.
Attach the four diecut butterflies at the noon, three, six and nine positions on the clock face.
Add a battery and hang to enjoy!
