Spiral of Spells Clock with Lavinia Stamps

This clock was super simple to make and yet so very effective.
The design is stamped on to a 12cm circle of card which covers the CD it's mounted on to.
I use an eyelet setter to create the centre hole for the clock mechanism to go through.
Picked Raspberry distress ink is blended onto the background, lightening the colour nearer the centre of the circle.
The hardest part is centralising the Spiral of Spells I usually have a practise on scrap paper first, but I have been doing these clocks a long time so it's not so much of a challenge for me now.
Once the clock base was prepared I used candi for the numerals, using a protractor to line them up.
These are mounted with foam pads and I added some Star Dust Stickles "Stars" on top and left to dry before assembling the clock.
