Cubby Hole - "Tick Tock"

This month Carol of the Cubby Hole, Crewe asked me to provide the inspiration for her monthly challenge - "TICK-TOCK".  The details can be found on Carol's Blog where she showcases her customers' work as well as being displayed in the shop - there is always so much diversity.

My piece is a double canvas mount - and I know I like the layered look but this is VERY busy for me - in retrospect I would have used less foliage stamps on the tissue paper but I did want to look like a overgrown garden.
Both canvas have had the crackle treatment with contrasting colours. Brown/cream and brown/ochre.  The large canvas has also had foliage stamped onto tissue paper adhered  
The cogs were cut from embossed mirri card which I had coloured with a combination of Stazon inks - these were highlighted with a white gel pen.  Text are quotes from Alice in Wonderland and have been done on my computer and coloured with my wax lyra crayons.

The images are from Indigo Blu and these have also been coloured with Lyra crayons.
Little paper flowers added and micro seed beads used for the flower centres.  White rabbit's clock has been covered with glossy accents for depth.

I am entering the canvas into the following challenges ........

Sir Stampalot - "In the Garden"
It's a very busy overgrown wild garden with strange inhabitants :)

The Stamp Man - "Texture"
Lots of texture;- crackle paint, tissue paper, embossed cogs, seed beads :)

Gingersnaps Creations - "Faux Techniques"
I know I have done my DT piece for this challenge - but seen as I love the faux metal (embossed mirri card) thought I would upload to the challenge.

Have a good weekend everyone - we are having Little Lillie sleeping over tonight - so I will be mentally exhausted tomorrow, but it's all good fun!  Suzanne ~x~

This is a wonderful project - I love the almost surreal effect of the Alice characters and the overgrown garden - brilliant.
