Tea for Two - Alice in Wonderland Square Tunnel Book - Joggles DT

Howzit Stamping Friends!
I’m about to take you down the rabbit hole again on a fun new Alice in Wonderland adventure!
I’m featuring Tunnel Books today over on the Joggles blog.  Joggles has a wonderful selection of 6” x 6” square tunnel books with assorted shape openings and a 6” x 9” rectangle tunnel book with rectangle openings. 

I had to go totally wackadoodle with my project, I just had to!   So I chose the 6” x 6” Square Tunnel Book with square openings because my muse was thinking....“Tea for Two” which lead me to “sugar lumps” which are square you see ;0)  Plus, everyone is used to rabbit holes being round so why not square for a change?  See there is logic to my madness bwahahaha ;0) 
Let the adventure to Wonderland begin.....Alice has a Tea Party to go to!

“Join Us for Tea”
“Go Alice…Go down the hole!  OFF with your HEAD if you diddle daddle!”
“Are you MAD?  It’s SQUARE!  I haven’t been down a square hole before!”
“Yes, quite MAD…It’s the same as”
“round but different you see…”
“The hurrier you go Alice, the behinder”
“You’re not!  Hurry Alice, you are LATE!”
“It seems an awfully long way down”
“You must be MAD!”
“Yes, we’re ALL MAD here…Didn’t we cover this in the first book?”
“Depends how you look at it….I’ts not far when you’re at the bottom!”
“Curiouser and Curiouser.  I believed SIX impossible things before breakfast”
“but not a SQUARE hole full of BIRDS!”
“Well, I do declare you are LATE!  My jam sandwich is cold, grumbled HATTER!”
“Yawn…Let’s get this tea party started!  One sugar or two?”
“The End   or is it…”
 I had an absolute ball creating this tunnel book and I hope you enjoyed the latest chapter in the Wonderland story ;0)

Earth Belongs to Us All! - Decious Doodles DT project!

Howzit Stamping Friends!
Our new challenge over at Delicious Doodles Challenges is underway and June's theme is All Creatures Great and Small.  After the recent attack on Manchester and the continuing madness going on around the world I decided my DT inspiration piece would have a message as well as showcasing my love for Alice in Wonderland!  This Delicious Doodles Alice and Friends digi perfectly fits the challenge theme and my message.

 I printed the digi out onto Neenah Solar White cardstock and coloured the entire design with Copics.  The coloured panel was then mounted onto a layer of black cardstock and trimmed to leave a narrow border.  I then added it to a layer of white cardstock leaving the area on 3 sides for the text.  The text was was hand written with a black Dylusions paint pen and decorated with little red hearts done with a metallic gel pen.  I then mounted everything onto a sheet of red cardstock and added a small easel stand cut from the same red cardstock.

Aurora Thinking - The East Wind DT inspiration card

Howzit Stamping Friends!
Today I'm sharing my design team inspiration project showcasing The East Wind's June Newsletter freebie, Aurora "Thinking Head".  If you love lots of glorious hair to colour then you'll love this digi.  I had so much fun colouring her hair in shades of red.

 Her top and both arms are a fussy cut layer that I adhered with pop dots in various thicknesses so that her hand next to her face is the lowest point and her left elbow the highest point, ie the thickest pop dot.  This give the finished card a fun tapered 3D effect.  It's really hard to capture how cool it looks in real life though.

 I printed her out onto Neenah cardstock and coloured her with Copics with white Dylusions paint pen highlights.  I also applied clear Wink of Stella to the bows on her top for a touch of shimmer.  I used Walnut and Black Soot Distress Crayons blended with water to create the background and trimmed the card and fussy cut out the upper portion of the image leaving a narrow border.  I then made a folded card from black cardstock and adhered her with Aleene's Fast Grab adhesive.  I then outlined the fussy cut upper portion with white Dylusions paint pen leaving a narrow black border and fussy cut out just the front of the black card.  The green watercolour background was done with Nuance pigment powders by Magenta which I then adhered to the inside of the card.  I completed the card with self-adhesive black pearls in 3 different sizes.
