`Do you play croquet with the Queen to-day?' `I should like it very much,' said Alice, `but I haven't been invited yet. `You'll see me there,' said the Cat, and vanished. Alice was not much surprised at this, she was getting so used to queer things happening. While she was looking at the place where it had been, it suddenly appeared again. -- Chapter 6, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland
Just like the Cheshire Cat, we would like you to make a card where things appear and disappear! It could be as simple as a tag in a pocket or something more interactive and fun. Check out The Altered Alice for links to loads of examples. Your project does not need to be a card and the hidden element does not need to be a cat. Enter by August 24 , and the winner will receive three digi stamps from our sponsor!
I've used these 4 stamps along with one of the Whimsy Trees and Heart Flowers (Hmmm...can't find that one at the mo) for my Swing Card. I used a U-Tube video HERE for my card.As you open the card, the cut portion swings and the cat disappears.
Here's the card fully open. I really enjoyed playing with the collage effect on the whimsical DP from K&Co. All images are either Paper pieced or colored with Copics, and the card fold allowed me to pop both Alice and the Queen for dimension without keeping it from closing completely. There is tons more inspiration on The Altered Alice Blog so be sure to scroll down to see all of the projects from my super talented and creative DT sisters. (I think we might be a little behind in posting this week's inspiration, so be sure to come back and check it out.) There are still more than 5 days left in this challenge so come on and play with us. The challenge isn't THAT hard, and we only have a few entries, so your chances of winning are that much greater. You don't even HAVE to use an Alice theme, but you do get two chances if you do. Hope to see you soon!
