Here's the last of my showcase pieces this month for Simply Steampunk using the fabulous Down the Rabbit Hole digi from the Alice in Wonderland Steampunk Style release, available only at SBS. I knew from the get go that I wanted to do this one in a dimensional style to give the impression that Alice is truly looking down the rabbit hole so I printed the image once on white cardstock to color and then resized it and printed it on kraft to fussy cut and pop the roots.
Here's a better look at the fab digi. I've colored with Copics and cut around the hole and glued to DP by Tim Holtz.
The fussy cut roots were popped using 2 layers of foam to give more dimension. This made the edges fairly unattractive so I used Washi tape around the entire thing to neaten it up. The Alice sentiments were in my stash and of course I've added a pocket watch and gears 'cause I just can't get enough of them. LOL
It really was too thick for a card that opened, so I decided to add an easel back, cut from a Tim Holz die, to make it a standing frame. It folds flat for storage, but for now I'm enjoying having it sit on my desk. (Fortunately it doesn't take up too much room. LOL) Be sure to visit Simply Steampunk for loads of inspiration using the Alice in Wonderland Steampunk collection all month long. And don't forget our current Party Invitation challenge that runs through December 5th. It can be any type of party, as long as it's in the Steampunk style so I hope you can join us.
I'm also entering thhis in the Left of Center Washi Tape or Twine Challenge (I've used Washi around the edges), Fab 'n' Funky Anything Goes, Simon Says Monday It's a Mystery (What's down that Rabbit Hole?), The Outlawz Monday Greeting Card No rubber Stamps (only digi's) Challenge, 613 Avenue Creates ATG, and TTRCD Nov 19th-25th ATG.
