"I'm late, I'm late, for a very important date...no time to say hello, goodbye, I'm late, I'm late, I'm late"
~White Rabbit, Alice In Wonderland
As soon as I saw this set of stamps, I just knew I'd love working with them. I've always had a fascination with Alice In Wonderland, it's one of my favourite books and I absolutely adore the Walt Disney 1951 film version, with a particular soft spot for the White Rabbit. So, today I'm sharing this card with you featuring just two of a set of character stamps from TJ Designs and bought from Scrapshed.
I wanted to make a card that integrated various elements from the stories. So, I used some old playing cards, including the Queen of Hearts and a beautiful white satin ribbon to represent Alice's bow on her dress. The papers are some stunning handmade papers that I bought a while ago from Costco and until now, they've been sitting a box, in the craft room, where I stroke, look but never use them!! The actual stamped image, which I hope you can see in the photos, is tripled enamelled using ultra thick embossing powder. It's a long process but it's worth taking the time to do and it gives a beautiful effect. Once the embossed image has cooled and hardened, I then matted and layered it onto some mirri card and a piece of white card, which I embossed through the Sizzix using one of Tim Holtz's embossing folders. Finally, I stamped a quote onto a tag and attached this to the ribbon.
Right, I'm off into the kitchen to give Nigella a run for her money, lol...and cook some Italian food for tonight's dinner. Hope you are all having a fab week and a big hello to all my new followers, thanks for stopping by...
