Tattered Floral Challenge

I decide to make another tattered floral project and came up with this clock!  The center flower is puffed up in the center.  I folded a piece of card stock accordion style to mount it on so it makes it stand up like that.  I used glossy accents on the hearts in the corners and a dab of turquoise and yellow stickles.  I also used glossy accents on the clock hands.  The bottom of the flower was painted with mustard seed distress paint and then stamped on top of with a background stamp. The other 3 petals were cut using grunge board and painted with black, weathered wood and picket fence distress paints. I also cut flowers from a ribbon that was clear with blue snowflakes on the thin netting ribbon.  I applied this thin ribbon while the flowers were wet with the distress paint that had been spritzed with water.  I allowed them to dry into place.  I like the texture this created. I pierced the centers and pulled a piece of blue tinsel through to create the flower stem.  Thanks for stopping by and checking this project out!  Have a great day!
