Altered Alice Challenge - Splendidly Dressed

 If you are here for my CR84FN post scroll down or click HERE.

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

My project:

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!
