Summertime Tildas' on Altered Clock

Good morning everyone! I have an altered item to share with you all.
I've had this clock for sometime waiting to be altered as i'm not a cat lover so i'm posting a few photos to take you through the steps i've taken to alter it!

First i took the clock apart leaving the frame which i painted with Gesso and Acrylic paints until i got the colour i wanted.
 While the frame was drying i cut a piece of  wood effect card from some recycled packaging.














I then stamped my Magnolia Watering Can background stamp and coloured with Distress Inks, i added some pearl mist spray to give a water effect.                                                                                  
I distressed the frame with Crackle Accents and Fran-tage   
Added some stamped and coloured mini Tildas.
 
Dies used are Magnolia's Hellebores and Sprawling Ferns, Whiff of Joy's Grass die and Die-namics small flower dies. Butterfly is Prima, ribbon bow and pearls are from my craft stash.

Fabulous transformation. Love the watering can background. I have a clock plate that is still on the wall in my daughters old bedroom which I have been eyeing up and down to alter when I have a spare moment or two!!
I love your colours and Tilda is a firm favourite of mine.
Thank you for fluttering by again this challenge. Hugs Mrs a. (Butterfly challenge).
