How to get a card at with Mod-hodgepodge
If you would like to decoupage cards, you’ll love this card, am! To make it’s very easy with a few simple supplies and Mod-smorgasbord.
I had to train on Board to jump the display of crafts, my friends. I had’t a card done a decoupage craft and thought it was easy at the time. I needed a gift for a buddy and thought something like this would be perfect for his office or hobby room.
I have gold and distressing for a more vintage look, and I’m really happy with the results. This watch is very easy to make – here’s how I did it.
Collect These Supplies
wood at the base, of any size
hands and pay you fit your base – I bought a kit
Mod smorgasbord of Satin
FolkArt paint – coastal Blue, butter cream
map or map printed image on a laser or dry-ink-jet-printer
My first challenge was figuring out how a card cut to fit, the face of the watch. With the edge of the face, you can’t lay it on the paper and trace elements. So what I've done, use tracing paper and a pencil to take a rubbing of the face. It has worked out great!
was My second challenge of figuring out how to print a card, they cover the face of the clock (a piece of paper’t large enough). So I have to find a card I liked, and enlarged it in Power Point on two sheets of paper.

Use it to RUB your candle wax on different parts of the clock face, where you want, to worry. The edges are a great place for that. Or really just any random area. It’s hard stressful is wrong.
as soon As you rubbed the candle everywhere, color Coastal Blue on the top and let it dry.
is Once the Coastal Blue is dry, use the sandpaper to remove paint in random areas. Sand a bit more for more stressful, and a little bit less . . . for less.
Once you grind finished, add Mod smorgasbord on the front of the face of the watch and smooth out the map. Let it dry for 15 – 20 minutes and then put a top coat over the whole watch. Let them dry and add another layer.
