Blog Candy Winner! & Chronology Clock


Morning all! I said I would reveal the winner of the Docrafts Creativity Club membership today and so here I am!
I assigned each commenter a number so that even if you had posted multiple times everyone got an equal chance. Then I used an online random number generator to select the winning number for me so without further ado the winner is, 
no 6..... Jewelsmae with her comment "Congratulations on the new position. What a lovely professional looking card, not colours I would have thought of putting together but it really works"
Congratulations! Please get in touch with me at hyperni7(at)gmail(dot)com and I will pass your details on to Emma to arrange your membership. :)

I haven't forgotten my promise to share some projects using the new dies too but currently there are a few in varying stages of progress so you will have to bare with me for a little bit longer, back soon! X

--------------------

Aaargghh! A big thanks to Claire at my demo who told me the above scheduled post had not posted!
Sorry to keep you all waiting even longer for the reveal, so I have now edited my message for today into the above post to add my apology and as a little bonus am adding in a photo of my new project from this week...

It's another one of my upcycling projects!
This was an old silver clock that was being thrown away *horror!* by my mum so I saved it and took it to my craft room. I have been looking into making a crafty clock for ages but never found the time to shop around for the mechanism and with the release of the new Docrafts Chronology collection now was the perfect time to use it!

I covered the clock in the gorgeous orange clock paper using red DST and inked all the edges with orange dye based ink.
For the face I roughly cut the front paper piece to size, laid it over the clock face up and then using a fine metal embossing tool I made dents along the lines of the edge of the clear panel. Then I turned the paper over and cut along these lines using my craft knife and a metal ruler.
The decorative clock hands, clock face and brads are all metal embellishments also from the new range and the black cogs were cut from textured card using the new 9pc chronology cogs die.

The clock will now live on my windowsill and brighten up my craftroom with its funky orange colour. Right as it is still snowy outside I am not venturing anywhere today and am off to the craft room to make some DT cards using my new Xmas present printer (finally!) and the Creativity Club exclusive  downloads. :)
