Anything But A Card Spring or Alice in Wonderland
Over at Anything But A Card we are entering into our second week of our current challenge which is Spring or Alice in Wonderland.
I love the Alice in wonderland story and I love the Octopode Factory's images, especially the AiW so it was a no brainer that I would use one. I went for the Mad Hatter and coloured him with copics, fussy cut him out and coated him with clear embossing powder.
The back ground is a piece of Stamp Board,Im not sure what the top coat is made from but it takes colour brilliantly and really makes the bright colours pop, you can also scratch into it to bring back the white.
I started by using Dylusion sprays starting with lemmon at the top and working my way down with pink, a little orange and then purple drying each colour off as I went.
The colour has been added using Distress re inkers, mown grass, Picked raspberry, peacock feathers and ripe persimmon. they have been painted on and then dabbed carefully with kitchen towl. I also added some stars with a great stamp from The Artistic Stamper using white ink.
To add some hi lights I used a scoring tool and scraped away to reveal the board underneath.
I finished of with a sentiment from Tim Holtz.
Thanks for stopping by, No more posts for today I promise ;) but beware of tomorrow x
The Octopode Factory are having a going green theme, The leaves and top hat are my bits of green.
Over at the Altered Alice they are having a Mad as the March Hair challenge, I have used the mad hatter for my piece.
