Another of the chunky book pages that is. I've taken ages on this one because it proved quite tricky. Heather said we could interpret the themes any way we wanted, following Tim's lead of course, so I used his gorgeous white rabbit stamp and turned him into the one from Alice in Wonderland. This theme is 'the timekeeper'.

I'm showing off one of my new edge dies from Tim's alteration range, it's fabulous but wait for the next one!

The base is mount board, which the die just laughed at because it cut through so easily, whereas the top layer is card. I used Tim's clock mask together with 2 peeloffs as masks and distressed both layers. I really wanted to do a pink and green page and this theme fitted those colours well. I then stamped the flourish before removing the masks. A quick squirt of ink and perfect pearls and the bases were done.

I stamped the rabbit 3 times and used silicone to 3D the bits together. I gave him a green stickles scarf, pink stickles inside his ear and rock candy distress stickles on his coat. I couldn't find my pompoms anywhere, so he has a cotton bud tail! A couple of black sticky gems for his eye and nose, and he was done. I stamped the watch onto shrink plastic and when 'shrunk' added glossy accents to give the appearance of a glass face.

I used my computer to print the 'I'm late, I'm late' saying onto printable acetate, which I edged with a glue pen and some ultra fine glitter. The chain was taken from a clothing label attached to some clothing my precious grandson got for his birthday. Thanks for that sweetheart.

I ran round all the edges with Victorian Velvet distress ink after having completed the back - no pic of that though!

Thoughts are in my mind for the next one which I will 'play' with over the next few days.
