SASPC Summer Challenge

Hi everyone! I hope you are having a lovely relaxing summer.
  I am trying to remember how I created this piece
as I made it a while back for Ministry Of
Mixology.
I used a Tando set Andy Skinner Industrial Elements
I started with giving the key hole plate a
base coat with Deco Arts Paynes grey
I followed this with crackle paint I assembled the
bolts and treated them with a coat of paint.
Once crackled I used patina antiquing cream
to highlight area's.
I tripple embossed andy's clock from his steampunk
stamp set.
I can't remember what stamp I used for the centre piece
I think its a Kazelkraft stamp.
An open clock was treated the same as the key plate
and attached to the back.  A stamped clock face
 that had glossy accents applied was cut in two some
& small watch part's were dropped into
 the wet accents.
I am proud to be a member of Sandee & amelie's design team.

Well that's all for today folks please feel free to let me know what you think and don't forget to pop over and see what the rest of the team have made. Why not join in with us and play for a chance
to win goodies from both Deco Art and Boozy Bear.

Lovely Laura Weed sent me these lovely stamps in one of my amazing packages
that I have received from them. Two of the stamps are from their new July 
Catalog and an old favourite and I wander if you can spot some
 Andy Skinner stamps in the mix. My choice from Tando was these 
lovely straight edged arches as I
                                                   felt they would showcase the stamps
beautifully.

followed by touches of treasure gold.
La blanche stamp was used as the main focal point, 
followed by a Tim Holtz Stamp & the word 
photograph from it stamped across the base 
and down the side.
A cream Prima flower with a pearl in its centre along with
a couple of metal cogs washed with very watered
 down Prussian blue hue media acrylic. 
Ideoligy film strip was run down the side.
Boozy bear clock was cut in half and treated with rust
