Happy Easter everyone! April has arrived, which (in the northern hemisphere) brings thoughts of wearing your Sunday springtime best and perhaps donning an Easter bonnet! So we at The Altered Alice want to you to show us your Sunday best; ruffles, ribbons, lace, frills; however you want to interpret the challenge! I've made a little Easter pedestal vignette in a nest with a mini bell jar top.
The design team is so excited about showing off the brand new Wonderland Perfectly Clear™ Stamps from our sponsor, Stampendous (Website / Blog). This Alice is all dressed up from her shining shoes to the top of her hat, not to mention her frilly parasol! We will have THREE winners this month, and they will each receive the same Wonderland stamp set the design team is using! You can read more about this amazing company HERE.
I've used 4 of the fabulous stamps from this new collection in my project. Is that the Easter Bunny? No, it's the White Rabbit, late again. His sparkly texture was achieved by stamping OVER micro fine glitter that was adhered to the card stock using Be Creative Tape Sheets. I used Memento Ink so I could shade him with my Copics (yes, you can color over this glitter, it's so fine!) His pocket watch was also stamped with Brown Memento and detailed with gold gel pen before being coated with Glossy Accents. He's about to hop through the Looking Glass (resin frame from Melissa Frances). See the checkered floor beyond?
And finally, the beautifully detailed heart is the crowning touch for this little tableau. Both the floor and heart were stamped with Distress Inks and I was so pleased how wonderfully the impressions came out, not matter what ink I used.
My frilly elements for the challenge were the lace, ruffles, ribbon and pompom trim from my stash adorning the little wooden spool pedestal. The base was cut with my Nesties and the text is the same as our book quote for this week. The little resin teapot is also Melissa Frances.
Besides inspiration from my Sisters at The Altered Alice, we have fabulous work by the Stampendous Design Team as well so be sure to visit each week. Enter using the Linky Tool by Friday, April 27 (my BIRTHDAY, WooHoo!). All entries are welcome but Alice in Wonderland entries are encouraged and will receive two chances at the drawing instead of one. Multiple entries are great but each must be on a separate post. Have a glorious Easter!
