CCC#33: Altered Metal


Sorry, couldn't get this photo to rotate in blogger.  Changed it in Photoshop but will only upload to blogger this way :{



Now for the before pic:


This is my offering for the CCC#33 Challenge:  Altered Metal with Alcohol Inks.  This challenge has been ongoing since June 2010 by Miss Linda over at StudioL3.  Only two more challenges before we are through the entire book:  Compendium of Curiosities by Tim Holtz.  Wonder what Miss Linda has up her sleeve for all of us once this challenge comes to an end.  We are all waiting in anticipation................

Anyway, after many conversations with my crafting friends about using what we have and finishing projects we have started I decided to ink up this clock I picked up on clearance with the intention of altering it.  It actually had dust on it from sitting in my craft area in a box for so long.  Now I have completed a project and entered my fav blog challenge---and it only took about 30 minutes, whoo hoo!  Oh, and I used all supplies I had on had, bonus!!

Supplies:
**Alcohol Inks:  Stream and Lettuce
**A clock to alter off the clearance shelf at Target
**Idea-ology pieces by Tim Holtz:  Watch Face, Spinners, Foliage, chain
**pop-dots
