Dream Valley Anything but Square

Good afternoon everyone, hope you are well! Here I am with something very different for our challenge at Dream Valley this fortnight-a working clock! I made it from scratch, ordered the clock movement but made the face and put it together myself, I am very pleased with how it came out too :-) What do you think?
To decorate the face I used Echo Park paper, which I stamped and heat embossed Vintage Butterflies and Dragonflies onto with Gold embossing powder, then coloured with distress inks. Lastly after I had fitted the clock movement I placed the numbers.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Altered Elusions: Anything Goes
Hotshot Crafts: Distress inks
Inspire Me Fridays: Anything Goes
The Stamp Man: Bling it on
Art Impressions Stamps: Metal Element

    1. Its not a kit Loops-I just bought the clock movement and made the rest myself. You should have a go-the movements arent expensive and those kits make it much more expensive to try!
