Tim Holtz Assemblage Clock Challenge - The Easter Bunny Family Chocolate Box

Hi there! Today, I have an Easter project to show you, and this one was another challenge from The Crafty Scrapper. Those of us participating were asked to use a Tim Holtz Idea-ology Assemblage Clock for Spring or Easter, so here is mine, along with Vignette pieces to make another chocolate can never have too much chocolate! Thank you Carolyn for asking me to participate, as I had a ball making this. Extra long post, so grab some chocolate... nom nom nom...enjoy!
Using the new Alcohol Pearls from Tim and Ranger...LOVE THEM!...I pounced on Tranquil and Celestial with an Alcohol Ink Blending Tool. Oh the sparkle! I did not use the glass from the clock so I will save that for another project.
Using Tim's Botanical Tissue Paper, Collage Matte Medium, and Collage Brush, I added the paper over the clock base and two bells. The Alcohol Pearls shown through wonderfully.
Using more of the Pearls, Smolder, Alchemy, Splendor, Sublime, Envy, and Mineral, I painted in the flowers and leaves with a paintbrush and Blending Solution. I also pounced on some Mushroom Alcohol Ink to the edges of the clock for a little more vintage feel.
I put the clock back together, and then covered the inside walls of the clock and the back piece with Tim's Wallpaper with a blue and orange flower motif. I painted some foam craft eggs with Alcohol Pearls as well, and layered those in a tiny basket with shredded book pages. 
Using a medium Vignette Box, I painted it will Glacier Ice Fresco Finish Chalk Acrylic Paint, and then dry brushed some Terracotta on. I added more Wallpaper to the sides of the box. I used the largest Vignette Panel instead of a medium because I needed a larger base for the clock and I wanted the overhang. I painted it with Magic Moss and then dry brushed Terracotta over it.
I die cut the Sizzix Timekeeper clock from Tim out of chipboard and painted it with Terracotta Fresco Finish, and the added Mineral Pearl over the hands. I attached it to the backing of the clock with Collage Medium after I inked the edges with Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink.
I painted more eggs with Celestial Pearl and then Glacier Ice Fresco Finish, and attached those to the bottom of the box for feet using Multi Matte. I had some mini metal bunnies in my stash that were yellow, and I painted those with Antique Linen Distress Paint followed by Smolder (I LOVE Smolder!). The rabbits were attached to the front right and right corner of the box.
I had brad latches in my stash from way back when, and I colored them with Mineral Pearl. I poked holes in the panel where the latches would go and pushed in the brads as far as I could, and then used pliers to further push them in and make them flush. I attached the the box to the lid with the latches.
I die cut all the Sizzix bunnies Tim has...the new Cottontail is the daddy, the mama from Easter Elements, and the baby from Bunny and Bow Movers and Shapers. I die cut two for the baby, three for the mama, and five for the daddy, and layered them up for extra thickness with Collage Medium. I painted them with Antique Linen.
The mama was a little too big for the inside of the clock where I wanted her so I had to trim her down some. I pounced over all three rabbits with Smolder Pearl for some shimmer. Then I added some detail painting to the trio with Distress Paint. I also added felt to the inside of the box. Not seen is a felt carrot that I stamped Happy Easter on with Tim's Crazy Talk. I attached the carrot to a cut popsicle stick for a sign. I adhered the clock to the panel with lots of Multi Matte Medium, and added on more shredded book pages and the eggs and sign.
I colored the bows for the rabbits with more Pearls and adhered them on with Collage Medium. I wanted them to have whiskers so I poked holes around their noses and threaded Tim's Craft Thread through and tied it in knots before trimming off, so they wouldn't come out. I love their whiskers and love Craft Thread!!! Then I added on the rabbits to the panel and in the clock. I colored the Crinkle Ribbon bow with Faded Jeans Distress Spray Stain and tied it on. I colored a mini butterfly from the Tiny Shapes Movers and Shapers with Terracotta and then Mineral and adhered it on. I added a few more eggs and then added the chocolate!
