ATC based on Tim's Feb 2013 Tag

This ATC is based very loosely on Tim Holtz's February 2013 Tag. Rubbed spiced marmalade Distress Stain over Manilla card stock, partial dried with a heat tool, spritzed with water, then continued to dry with heat tool. Repeated these steps with aged mahogany Distress Stain. I like this background technique.
 Stamped a large clock image with black Archival Ink. Roughed the edges of the ATC with a distressing tool, and colored these edges with the black Archival Ink.
 Used an embossing folder to create a checkerboard impression on black core card stock and used sandpaper to reveal the inner white in the raised areas.
 Stamped rabbit image with black Archival ink on watercolor paper, added some spun sugar Distress ink to the eye, nose and ears. Used foam adhesive to adhere rabbit to ATC. Used cranberry alcohol ink to color the inside of a type charm. Added 2 words cut out from a book page, colored edges with black Distress ink, topped with the enclosed epoxy sticker.
