This month Stampendous is sponsoring the wonderful Altered Alice Challenge. For all the details hop on over to the Altered Alice Blog. The inspirational quote:
"After a time she heard a little pattering of feet in the distance, and she hastily dried her eyes to see what was coming. It was the White Rabbit returning, splendidly dressed, with a pair of white kid gloves in one hand and a large fan in the other: he came trotting along in a great hurry, muttering to himself as he came, `Oh! the Duchess, the Duchess! Oh! won't she be savage if I've kept her waiting!'"-- Chapter 2; Alice's Adventures in Wonderland
I had picked up this little crown awhile ago and it was a great deal. I was saving the crown for a special project and this was the perfect challenge. The images are all from the Stampendous Wonderland set.
I stamped the cards and hearts using the Crimson red from Ranger Archival Inks. I accented the crown with some bits and pieces of trim gems, and lace.
Alice was stamped in black and colored with watercolor. I created the base from acetate supports attached to the bottom of the crown and added Websters Pages Lace Panel in the bottom to cover my base and give a softness to the crown.
I love that I was able to use those playing cards. I can't tell you how many half decks we had in our card selection. I went through and took any deck that was missing more than a few cards and put them in my alterable stash. :)
Hope your Sunday is blessed!
