Down The Rabbit Hole ATC - DT Smudgy Antics!

Howzit Everyone!
It's my turn again to share some DT inspiration on Wednesday on our Smudgy Antics Challenge blog!   I'm getting my project up a bit earlier coz I'm also playing in the Smeared and Smudge monthly member blog hop "Alice in Wonderland - Madness" on Thursday.  Lots going on so let's get started!

"Down the Rabbit Hole"
My American McGee White Rabbit keeping an on things
 Smeared Ink hosted a one for one ATC swap on our Smeared and Smudge Facebook group and the theme was Down the Rabbit Hole and you all know I love Alice so yep, I played ;0)

I used Smeared Ink's Cheshire Cat and White Rabbit digis from the Wonderland set and on the back I stamped the ATC Info stamp from the Letterbox Backgrounds rubber set.

Clocks have 4 hands in Wonderland, no one has a clue what time it is!
I performed some Wonderlandian magic in Photoshop CS6 and made the Cheshire Cat disappear from the background image, filled in the design, added a purple gradient sky and altered the shape from round to ATC sized.  I also removed parts of the design on the White Rabbit image and overlaid the Rabbit and a portion of the clock onto the background before printing it out on white cardstock.  I then printed out just the rabbit.  I coloured everything with Copics and fussy cut out the Rabbit and layered her onto the ATC with dimensional silicone glue.

a closer look at the details
 I added metallic gold detail to the clock text and another set of metal clock hands attached with a tiny brass brad.  I hand wrote the "down the Rabbit hole" text with a black fineliner Copic marker and distressed the edges of the ATC with Tim's Tonic tool and edged it in metallic gold.  For the finishing touch I added some sparkle with a Vive Pearl Transparent Magic White dimensional pen on the Rabbit's tail, hair, the arrow on the sign and some dots in the corners.  The ATC Info image was stamped with black Archival Ink onto another ATC and I adhered it to the back with Scotch Quick Dry adhesive.

Don't forget to come back on Thursday March 19 for our "Alice in Wonderland - Madness" member blog hop, I can't wait to share my project so here's a sneaky peek ;0)
