Saturated Canary Dt Card..........well ok not a card

Hello my lovelies how are you? Well I'm scheduling this as hopefully I'm having a full day in my hobbit.........crafting & then hopefully tidying & sorting out my stuff...........yep its a tip!!

Anyhoo's its time for another challenge over at Saturated Canary & we have a fabberooney one for you this fortnight, its...........
ALTER IT
...........yep we want to see you Alter Something. Now this was a toughie for me as I have a cupboard full of stuff to alter............so I didnt know what choose lol.
Then I decided to finally do what I've been wanting to do for months & months.

WARNING PIC HEAVY
This used to me my alarm clock years ago but I find the damn thing soooooooooo annoying so its not even been wound up for years..............doesnt even match my bedroom........
I only remembered take pics after I started to take it apart lol............so excuse it not being in one piece, it was 5 mins before this pic was taken lol...........although it looks better already lol.

It now however matches my bedroom............
First of course I sprayed it black.........now as my hubster did me a new place to take pics of my cards etc I now use my light tent to do my spraying in............it comes in very handy.......
Excuse the white spray I had to move them temporarily to spray some flowers with my white florist spray lol. I use to keep an old box that came with a pair of my sons trainers(he has size 11 big feet so big box lol) to do my spraying in but this works so much better.
I have used  my most fave Prima pad for the papers inside. To do this part I glued two pieces of paper together, back to back, I chose black for underneath so when I ripped the paper a bit the black would be rolled over.......I then cut up another sheet to glue at the base, so I had the exact two words to show through. Its about love so had to have these two words ;0)
This is obviously the top & the 'Love' & the front 'Scroll' I made myself with moulds from my stash. The 'Keyhole' is a Melissa Frances. I added Prima Gem Corners to each bell, I cut off the top bit to make them fit nicer. One of the bits I cut off I put on the scroll at the front. I also put a Prima Flower in the middle of the bells.

At the sides I've added some Prima 'Crystal Swirls'. I've also added a 'Clay Heart', a Prima Metal Trinket & a Prima Pearl in the middle of that.

As the clock is based on love as its for mine & hubby;s bedroom I wanted to use an image representing that. So I used the beautiful 'Bride' image..........only now when I've gone over to the shop its not there, so it may be discontinued sorry. I just go with whats in my folder, maybe I should check first lol.
She is coloured with copics........
E11, E21, E00, E000
E29, E27, E23, E21,
 C3, C1, C00
All of the flowers are Prima & also the chipboard clock. The bird I cut using my Marianne die.
The papers I've used are Prima Lyric from My Crafty Heart but Teresa has sold out & Prima have now stopped making them..........so glad I brought plenty lol. I have been wanting to do one of these ever since I saw one on Pinterest & I'm actually pleased how my first one turned out. Will definately be making more & hopefully will get better. The one thing I forgot when I did this was to spray the little legs black..........oops will have to rectify that lol.

Pop on over to see all the fabulous makes my teamies did, they will certainly inspire you.
Of course for your instant Saturated Canary fix pop on over to Krista's shop for all your digi images.........you will be spoilt for choice.

Thanks for stopping by & all of your lovely comments will be round soon to see you all.
Tatty bye & big squishy hugs to all mmwah
