It’s a clock! A couple of years ago a friend of mine gave me this simple glass clock, and I think it was high time to give it a new look and hanging proud in my craftroom: in this project I feature the cool ‘The Right Direction stamp set by Visible Image, perfect for any masculine card or craft project.


How cute the tiny cars on the clock hands are:

Tutorial:


Disassemble the clock and cut a piece of white cardstock to size:

Swipe two colours of Distress Oxide on a plastic sleeve, spray water and swipe the cardstock face down. Dry a bit with the heat gun and repeat with two different colors. Carry on until you are happy with the result:

Now stamp the car and the London skyline on opposite corners from the stamp set ‘The Right Direction’

Add some stencilled details to the background (looks a lot like a F1 flag!) using ‘Distorted Chess‘ and Distress Oxide:
