Altered Clock !!

I found this clock, out of all places on Amazon and I said to myself "wow that's an ugly clock". So I bought it anyway and said to myself "I can totally alter this and make it fabulous" I think I might be talking to myself too much LOL!!  Anyway I used the Graphic 45 Steampunk Debutante paper line, which for me, is one of those "too pretty to use papers" but, I went at it and altered away. On the top I used a Tim Holtz Ornate plates and added the metal butterflies from Graphic 45, I added a large, small and paper butterfly cut out of the same paper line and a G45 brad in the center. I also added some lace trim and flat back pearls to the top. On the bottom I used a Tim Holtz pocket watch and added paper cutouts from the line and some roses and a small key. I also added some Prima bling. I then used Rub and Buff on the bottom and the edges. 
Thanks for stopping by :)

Wow! Thats an UN-ugly clock! LOL. Don't know what it looked like when you saw it, but I LOVE this. I just recently dived into debutante to cover a thrift store find that holds my expensive paints because I decided *I* was worth it, since it sits on my craft shelf and I look at it each day. It is so hard to use those beautiful collections, huh? I am now going to have to look for an ugly clock! LOL Really gorgeous!
