This month I had the privilege of altering the new Tim Holtz alarm clock! It was FANTASTIC!! I knew I wanted distressed and grungy and definitely patina...but it went WAY further than that!
 I used the coffee filter words to create the text underneath the crackle paint. 


Check out my step by step tutorial at the Swirlydoos Youtube channel here!

I also got to lift the most AMAZING sketch!




Here is my take on the sketch



Here is a closeup of some of the embossing and stamping. Don't you LOVE core' dinations cardstock?!


I used some Lindy's Moonshdow mist on the die cut here to get the green shimmer. 

You have until midnight, eastern time, on Friday 5/17 to complete the hop. Winners will be announced on the Swirlydoos Blog on Saturday 5/18.  In order to qualify to win here is what you need to do:
