Today I would like to share a card that I am entering into the Crafty Individuals Challenge. The challenge theme is “Scenic Stamping” chosen by Coco. For this challenge I thought I would go with an Alice in Wonderland scene.
I started this card last night everything that could go wrong did!!! In the end about 5 a.m. I thought that’s it! I am off to bed. I wanted to do a one layer card and just build the scene up by simple stamping and masking. I finished my piece and then dropped my leaf stamp on it so I had to rescue it with a bit of fussy cutting. It just went from bad to worse but I had fun and I needed to finish this to enter the challenge.
Please click on the images to see the detail
I stamped and masked to build up my little scene. Please see below for the order of stamping and masking. Ok, the clock is the wrong way up…..one of the things I noticed when I had finished and was mat an layering but its Alice and anything goes with Alice. That’s my excuse anyway.
The background is a blue and green water color wash. I then stamped the flowers and leaves and butterflies and colored them in. To finish it off I just ran some DI inks around the edges.
The card is made up as seen. The front stamped panel is attached using foam tabs.
Love this little girl image. She is so pretty.
