Time? I’m Late!


What to do when the ATC prompt is time? Hahaha! The words ‘I’m late! I’m late! For a very important date!‘ kept running through my head and sent me spiraling down the rabbit hole! Eek!

Hahaha! Don’t worry! I’m almost out of Alice in Wonderland papers. But the theme of time definitely sent me to Alice’s White Rabbit. I still love these backgrounds I made for ATCs and thought once again this was the perfect choice. After sending all my possible pieces through the sticker machine I got to work!

I forget about washi tape so many times. And this time – hehehehe – I wanted to use some to depict time. Before you ask, no, I do not know what this organizer is called. I do remember I purchased it at Hobby Lobby in the scrapbook section. You can sometimes find them in sporting goods departments of stores where they are masquerading as tackle boxes. They make great storage for washi tapes.

This cute tape had a watch and that was as close to time as I could come. So I wrapped it all the way around and attached it on the backside. I like how you can still see the splatters through the tape.

This steampunk looking clock face came as part of some scrapbook elements I’ve had on hand. You have seen this clock before. I think I still have one more.

I trimmed away the excess and inked the edges with a cattail colored Dyestress Ink Pad.

Someone asked me recently if thin papers worked with the sticker machine. The piece I added – crookedly, apparently – is a page from a Korean dictionary. It is thin. When you peel the sticker paper backing off – it is just a little harder to get an edge to pull, but you can remove it without tearing the paper. I have never messed up yet – fingers crossed and eyes crossed, too! Just in case, you know.

That cattail ink pad finished off those edges and I scuffed some color on the Korean characters to age them a bit.

The last thing to do was add my White Rabbit and some words. Hahaha! Late!

But that time block was a little too pristine. Some black ink took care of that. And while I was at it, I added some black around the edges a bit, too. The brown cattail is still there but it got some oomph! from the black. I guess it was time for some teamwork with the inks! Hahahahahaha!

  1. Love this…I am an Alice fan, in more ways than one!! LOL
    But for the life of me I cannot see a cattail anywhere. But, the bunny does need a tail>….a big one…lol

  2. So interesting seeing what you come up with for the various titles. Perfect images for the prompt & you certainly get a lot of mileage from that dictionary.

  3. Alice, I love your Alice in wonderland ATCS, sorry to hear your AIW papers are almost depleted😥.
    Love this one a lot!

  4. This is so cute! I need to make my imagination work!!!’

    • Gayle, these are fun because they are small and you can make one in a short amount of time

  5. Love your choices with this one! I always have trouble getting the back off when I create stickers. I can’t imagine using thin paper.

    • I have some sticker paper for the printer. I haven’t tried it yet. I wonder how hard it would be to remove that backing.
