It's crafting time .......... My 3D clock made from a recycled "Fosters" beer box.

Hi everyone, I hope you are all keeping well,
Today I would like to share this little 3D clock I made from a recycled "Fosters" beer box.
Needless to say, I had to drink the beer first !!
This took ages to make'
I hope you like it.

I would like to enter this 3D project into the following challenge.

I used gold chain to represent the pendulum.
 
 
Close-ups of clock face.
 
 
I used distress inks to give a mahogany effect.
 
 
If you look inside, you can see the "Fosters" box.
 
This could finish up hanging in my Craft room.
 
Items used.
Fosters box.
Tim Holtz Distress inks. (Walnut stain & Aged mahogany)
Gold Mirri card.
Gold chain from local DIY shop.
Acertate.
Various nesties.
Gold Peel-offs. (Clock face)
Computor (Text)
Last but not least.... a lot of time.
 
Thank you so much for taking the time to visit my blog,
I really appreciate your comments.
Lots of love,
Sylvia x
