Oh, Alice! - CHAPTER 4: Picturing Wonderland



Time for another adventure with our friends at Oh, Alice!;  This week we have this awesome sketch by the truly marvelous Pam Varnell to play with.

I've had this picture of the Mad Hatter and Alice in my head for a few weeks now, and it's taken me a little while to figure out how to make it into a card.  My problem was solved when the wonderful Marie at The Greeting Farm released the 'Wonderland' set as a digital image; this meant i could make the Mad Hatter and Tea Cup as big as i wanted, and Alice nice and tiny.

I created my main image in Photoshop using the 'Wonderland' digital image, just a matter of playing around with layering the images.  I then saved it and printed it out really for me to colour.  I coloured the image with my Promarkers, and added some shading and detail with my Prismacolour pencils.

I die cut a frame using a Sizzix die, and then coloured it with Promarkers to coordinate with my main image.  The card blank i found in my stash along with this very pretty and wonderful background paper.  Using a border punch i created a border on each side of the paper before sticking it to my card base.  I then stuck my main image down, adding my coloured frame with foam pads to add some dimension.

To finish my card off i decorated the frame with some large flatbacked pearls, and added a green organza bow.

This card turned out pretty much how i'd imagined it, so i'm really happy.  As you can probably tell Wonderland is very bright in my imagination.

Thanks for visiting
