Anything but a Card Challenge at Polkadoodles

Happy Friday Everyone!!

The theme of this week's challenge at Polkadoodles is "Anything but a Card".

 For my  project this week I made an altered clock.   I have used several beautiful Christmas images and designer paper from the Work & Play 5 - Festive HollybobsI coloured my images with Copics, gell pen, wink of Stella and glitter. The clock was painted with acrylic paint , Posca Pens and the snow was created by grading Styofoam and adding glitter. 

This is my last post for Polkadoodles for 2107.  Hope to see you back here again in 2018.
