Gift for Karen "Zucchini Kitty"

Here's a clock and card I made for my good friend Karen, better known as "Zucchini Kitty" on YouTube. She and I share a wonderful friendship and gifts for each other.
For ideas to add character to this clock, I found inspiration over at the blog "Our Creative Corner" the OCC.... http://ourcreativecorner6.blogspot.co.at/ . This months challenge is to "Go Rustic" which happens to be one of my favorite looks in art and nature. I used a rusting powder I bought from The Dusty Attic. You apply an adhesive for the powder to stick to and then spray it down with white vinegar, which I did around the clock face and rim. After a bit of time your item will rust.
 Adding fun rusty embellishments next.... stars, birdhouse, fence, flowers and watering can.





I then made a card to go with the gift also in a rusty fashion using distress inks and sprays. 

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog.
