Chapter 39 "Nothin' but Tea and Time

"Alice felt dreadfully puzzled. The Hatter's remark seemed to have no sort of meaning in it, and yet it was certainly English. `I don't quite understand you,' she said, as politely as she could.

`The Dormouse is asleep again,' said the Hatter, and he poured a little hot tea upon its nose.

The Dormouse shook its head impatiently, and said, without opening its eyes, `Of course, of course; just what I was going to remark myself.'

`Have you guessed the riddle yet?' the Hatter said, turning to Alice again.

`No, I give it up,' Alice replied: `what's the answer?'

`I haven't the slightest idea,' said the Hatter.

`Nor I,' said the March Hare.

Alice sighed wearily. `I think you might do something better with the time,' she said, `than waste it in asking riddles that have no answers.'

`If you knew Time as well as I do,' said the Hatter, `you wouldn't talk about wasting IT. It's HIM.'

`I don't know what you mean,' said Alice.
`Of course you don't!' the Hatter said, tossing his head contemptuously. `I dare say you never even spoke to Time!'"

This week's challenge at Oh Alice! is an inspiration piece.
It's a gorgeous bauble from the awesome, Tarina Tarantino.
I have a couple "Pink Head" Hello Kitty pieces of hers and now apparently 
she is working in Wonderland!
A bit large and chunky for my taste, but cool none the less.

Here is what I was inspired to create from the piece.
I LOVE the colors used on Tarina's bracelet and am so pleased
with how they really make one another pop!

I am currently in LOVE with the new line of Steampunk images
This is Emma. She colored up like a dream! I need the practice of coloring
fabric and these images are great for just that! I think I may be finally getting the
hang of these Copics.

Since time was also a part of the theme, I found this image of
pocket watches and antiqued it a bit with distress inks and then I
clear embossed it and cracked it up for a broken glass effect.

Please drop by the Oh Alice! challenge blog to see
what fabulousness the ladies have cooked up this week!
