Halloween Configuration Book Part 12

Hi friends! It's "time" for the clock.

I love to use Rock Candy Crackle Paint to create a old vintage look. 

Gather some supplies - Rock Candy Crackle Paint, Distress Stain (tea dye, gathered twigs), Picket Fence Distress Paint, Crossbones, Game Spinners, Gathered Twigs Distress Ink, Ink Blending Tool and Numeric Rub Ons. 
Die cut the Mini Wall Clock from Grunge Board. 

Push out the center of the Clock and paint with Picket Fence Distress Paint. Let dry.

Sand and ink the edges with Gathered Twigs Distress Ink. 

Cut out numerals and rub onto the clock face.

Poke a hole in the center and add the Game Spinner to the center with a Mini Fastener in the center. 

Use Distress Stain to color the clock face. Let dry. 

Sand and ink the Wall Clock with Gathered Twigs Distress Ink on an Ink Blending Tool.

Paint Rock Candy Distress Crackle Paint over the body of the wall clock. Let dry.

After the Crackle Paint dries put the clock face back in the clock. Adhere Game Pieces to the back of the Wall Clock and adhere to the little box. 

Adhere the Crossbones to the Wall Clock. Add the "Exhibit "A" but adhering with Matte Medium. Push the Long Fasteners in between the little boxes. 

Have a great weekend!

This clock is so pretty. Too bad I don't yet have the die for it. I made this box with a little pocket watch cover and filled it with a tiny clock face and the skull and cross bones. Because it isn't wood-toned like your clock, I had to add some contrast and dimension. I filled the box about 1/4 of the way full of little skull sequins and covered them with a piece of acetate like your shaker box. Then I glued a piece of the spider web die cut in such a way that it made a little hammock. To suspend the watch above the spider hammock, I made a little "chain" from jewelry wire, made a little hole in the top of the box to poke the wire through, and then secured it with tissue tape. I'm very happy with the way it turned out.
