Hello there! Thanks for popping in to see us 🙂
Today is all about our fabulous Alice in Wonderland stamps. If you missed this morning’s post you will find it HERE.
Over to Kim Robertson with today’s 2nd inspiring project…
Huge Good Mornings to all…
Today’s card is something totally different and I hope you like it as it is using of course the fabulous Visible Image and their new little character of course Alice… in wonderland and wow isn’t she a beauty.
I just loved her the minute I saw her and wanted to do a backing befitting her so I started by drawing the hole and get some dept to it with several shades of Grey promarkers , I drew the whimsical tree to create the backing with a little bunny poking his head from around the tree. Alice had to have a book of course and the tree had to have a little door and a few other little extras. I stamped out Alice and coloured her and cut her out with fussy cutting, I then added her to black card and cut her out again, I used foam to raise her from the back ground too and added a huge pocket watch and some tiny keys here and there. I stamped and cut out the sentiment from the set and added a black backing too and added it ti the top right of the card.
Here is the main image I very much was going for the whole story book image theme and I loved how this turned out looking so three -D like a story book page.
I also stamped the little cake out from the set and stamped several in a row and coloured them all with pastel colours and added them to black card and foam to add as a border for the bottom.
Here is a close up after I coloured Alice with Promarkers so you can see how gorgeous she looked. I went for a different hair colour to the traditional as I liked it with the blue dress.
And once I had her positioned on my background I just love how her hair turned out and the handrawn hole with the ladder turned out really well and gave a lot of dimension to the hole piece.
I love this sentiment too it made me smile from the first read. This launch really just screamed inspiration from the moment I saw all the gorgeousness and it is really just the beginning for this fabulous company and great friends.
You can see my tree in the background which again was Promarker coloured with several shades of Brown ( not Grey lol)
Here is a close up on the little story book scene and you can see the background also has its own mat and layers to keep it looking neat and smart and very clean but definitely not simple.
I chose a completely black and white card scheme and a hand drawn by me back ground to compliment Helen and Marks gorgeous Alice in Wonderland set I hope I did them justice and they love it as much as I do.
Ooooo the gorgeous looking cake border… yummmmm
So again here is the main Image for you to see all together.
Everyone on the team really has done some amazing work with all the stamp launches for the Stitches trade show up at the NEC last week, and lots of the work is being showcased each day here on the blog
So for today lots and lots of love to all and I hope you are having some milder weather where you are and spring is in the air.
Best wishes to all
