why this watch is exactly two days slow!!

hey there bloggers,
well here is my entry for the tiddlyinks challenge, boys/men...I chose to go with the madhatter from tiddly inks which was an image which appealed to me....and then dived into my Alice goodies and time themed things!
so here it is:
I am more than happy with the outcome of this card, which is more than can be said for some of my crafty escapades today!!
I started by printing and colouring the image and I am now a dab hand at resizing, for me a MAJOR achievement!!
This background is in three pieces - the first using an Alice watch stamp in pumice stone DI and then blending over the top.The middle piece is embossed and coloured using DI pumice stone and black soot and the third piece is coloured with dusty concord and stamped with pocket watch in black.
I added a quote stamp and a little pocket watch charm from ebay and a piece of chain from a broken bracelets safety chain..and voila!
Oh and a few staples from my addiction of the moment, my tiny Tim Holtz stapler attacher.
I am entering this for the tiddly inks challenge @ http://tiddlyinkschallenge.blogspot.com/2011/10/challenge-68-boys-will-be-boys.html
thanks for stopping by,
I really appreciate and love all the kind and wonderful comments that are left!
