Down the Rabbit Hole



I decided to check the inspiration challenge over at SCS today. Boy am I glad I did! The inspiration pieces for this week's challenge were cakes. Fabulous cakes I must say! There was one entitled "Down the Rabbit Hole". Of course I had to pull out my "Alice In Wonderland" stamp set for this one. This stamp set can be purchased here: http://www.tweetyjill.com/ It is such a fun set to work with. The colors for the card were directly taken from the cake. I had some My Mind's Eye pattern paper that worked perfectly. I distressed all of the edges with Antique Linen distress ink. The main image is stamped with Palette Noir ink and colored with copic and prismacolor markers. I stamped the image onto white paper, since he is a white rabbit after all. I thought that it would make it easier to keep him white looking. I did add a little brick white marker to give him some dimension.




I created the floral piece by cutting different papers and Tulle with my cuttlebug and flower dies. I layered them all with glue dots and added a few buttons for dimension. The word paper is actually reproduction paper from the "Mad Hatter's Tea Party" card kit that can also be found at http://www.tweetyjill.com/ . So cute!!!!!

I had a lot of fun with this one! Thanks for fluttering by!

Wow Kelly! You have been busy creating awesome stuff as usual. I've been away from the computer but just wanted to say love, love this card. Love the MME paper and the way you put it together and of course that adorable rabbit. You've been making good use of your new nestabilities and Martha Stewart products too! I tried to get that lace punch on sale and they were gone! Anyway, thanks for all of your inspiration in the beautiful crafts you do!
