December Anything Goes challenge at that craft place!

Hi there everyone, it is sunday and a new challenge is starting over on the that craft place blog!
I'm sure you know by now that as well as having a challenge blog, that craft place is a bricks and mortar shop , now in polegate, sussex AND they have an online group too where you can grab your goodies if you aren't in the location of the 'real' shop!

My project today is made using one of lisa's MDF clock kits
I think you will agree it is fab, and it is also around 38cm diameter!

I also used one of the that craft place digital stamps, this one is from sugar and spice and is called 'love from sugar'




to achieve the finish on the clock I primed the MDF with gesso and then painted it with tim holtz crackle paint in picket fence.. 
I then used my distress ink pad - peacock feathers  (you can also pick these ink pads up at the shop)
and my ink tool to cover the paint once dry with the ink.
I used tim holtz peacock feather distress glitter to glitter the hearts and triple thick to adhere it (also from the shop)
the paper in the middle of the clock is a piece of paintable paper from Prima I was given a while back, and I coloured this with copics to tie in with the blue theme.


Copics used-
E000,E00,E21,E11,E04, R20, BG09,BG07,BG05,BG02,BG01, R20


please if you haven't already done so go and check out the new challenge and enter your 'anything goes' projects! I look forward to seeing your work!
