Altered Fairy Clock

Some time ago I made an altered fairy clock(you can see it here).  I was asked to make another for a friend that was getting married.  He wanted to give it to his sister as her best woman gift.  I decided to make this clock a bit more masculine, well as masculine as one can get making a fairy themed item.  I used a darker color palette with the flowers and the fairy wings.  I love making the clocks like this.  The tiny fairies tucked inside look so content in there.  An abandoned clock would make a lovely fairy home.

What have you been crafting?

  21. That turned out fantastic. I have a clock sitting on my desk that is begging to be altered, but I just cannot make myself get started on it!
