Parthanon Horse Clock

Time for another challenge over at

Challenge 57
Going in Circles

Welcome back to the IKEsWORLD challenges :)  do pop on over to IKEsWORLD to join in the challenge, it is always so much fun and  Ike produces the most amazing stamps, everything from off the wall to cute and fluffy :) :) :)

Oops thought I had the clock face straight when I took this picture (should have put my glasses on hahaha) - anyway, sorry it is a bit off centre.  Most of this project was completed digitally.  I first positioned 12 of the digital image 'Pathanon Horse' in the correct position and then added the numbers and hour points.  Next I added another layer to my design for the background which I embossed and then added a gradient.  The horses were then coloured on two separate layers, one dark for the manes and bases and the other light grey with a texture added.  Once the digital designing was completed I printed the design and mounted it on thick card then cut it out.  Onto the clock which is from Ikea.  I dismantled the clock and covered it in black vinyl then attached my printed clock face.  Next I finished off the centre of the clock with some pearls and metal beads and finally added the perspex top layer of the clock with the red hand already marked onto it (part of the original clock design).  To finish of I die cut a couple of corners in grey card using a Tattered Lace die.
