Alice in Wonderland
Happy Thursday! This week I decided to create a couple of cards using the ALICE IN WONDERLAND and the SHABBY HOUNDS TOOTH and UPTOWN HOUNDS TOOTH sets from LINDSAY'S STAMP STUFF. After watching the new Alice in Wonderland movie a couple of weeks ago, I started thinking about Alice projects I could make. I am still mulling a few over in my brain, but recently I was inspired by Vanessa Spencer to make these cards. I started by cropping my image and a section of the hounds tooth paper from the sheets and adjusting them to size I wanted, using PhotoShop Elements. It is important to crop the digi paper, because if you just shrink it, you will lose the pattern in the paper. I coordinated the color of the hounds tooth with the colors I knew I would be using on my images. I colored only a small section of the images for a minimalist look. Next, I splashed a small amount of coordinating paint under the image. Once it dried, I stamped the sentiments (inkadinkado) on the paint. I added stamped corners (Heidi Grace) and on the White Rabbit card, I stamped the pocket watch (Hero Arts) and colored it. I added just a couple of simple embellishments and a few punched hearts. I inked the edges of each piece with matching colors and adhered those to matching colored cardstock before attaching the whole thing to the white base. The finished cards are 5 1/2 x 6 1/2.
