Wonderland Tea Party Steampunk Top Hat for Blockheads Paper Arts!

Hello Friends!
I'm not going into a lot of detail about my creation for today coz my precious kitty, Cassi, passed away on Saturday :0(  She was my baby and I'm devastated and miss her with every fiber of my being :0(

"Wonderland Tea Party"
Steampunk Top Hat

 Awarded with an Honourable Mention at The Altered Alice! Thx :0)

All the Steampunk animals are from Blockheads' Fringe Folktails stamp set.  Stamped onto Neenah Solar White cardstock with Tuxedo Black Memento ink and coloured with Copic Sketch markers.

 For all the details on how I made the mini Top Hat please visit one of my other posts by clicking HERE!

 The gears and cogs are Tim Holtz Alterations Bigz and Movers and Shapers dies die cut out of Grungeboard and coloured with all 3 of the metallic Distress Stains.  Everything was adhered to the Top Hat with Scotch Quick Dry adhesive and embellished with paper flowers, wired ribbon and black tule from Michaels plus an antique brass Steampunk pocket watch charm.

 I'm entering this one into the following challenges:
Altered Alice Chapter 27 What a Wonderful Dream It Has Been!
Happy Stamping!

  5. Oh Leigh, so sorry to hear about Cassi. She looks like my Max who is also in kitty heaven. Adore your hat! such fun stamps and fab details. Thanks for sharing with The Altered Alice. xxD

  6. Cassi was a wonderful kitty cat....when I said by to her last December didn't think I would not see her again....she used to sit/lay on top of me while sleeping and while reading a book before sleep she would nudge her nose under the book as if to say "hey what you doing" she was so precious!! xx

  7. I am SO SORRY for your loss. I have two precious feline fur babies and I know what a hole losing one of them would leave in my life.

    Fantastic top hat, wonderful use of these great images and your coloring and decorations are brilliant!
