Hickory Dickory Dock

As soon as I saw this gorgeously cute image newly releaseed from Digi My World it screamed "...make me in to a bookmark...".  So I did....

Ingredients: Cardstock/Papers - Kaszazz, Portacraft; Le Plume Markers; Sakura Stardust Pens; Sakura Glaze Pens;  Thin Leather Cord, Glass Black Beads....

I coloured the image with  markers, and accented the pendulum, some wooen trim and the clock hands with glitter and glaze pens. I also used glaze pens on the mousie's nose and eyes.  I trimmed the image, and snipped off the mousie's tail... don't worry, it was intentional!  I want the mouse to 'stand out' from the standard rectangular bookmark, so I made the layered bookmark smaller than the image.... so that mousie would stand out.  

Before fixing the image to the bookmark, I took a piece of thin leather cord, tied glass beads to either end, and fixed it to the image..... so that it would replace the mousie's tail!  Perfect spot, I thought.  The other end extends from the top of the clock, so there are beaded tails hanging from both ends of my book .... when I get time to sit and read!  And he is entered into these challenges around the blogosphere...
