CHAPTER 17: Mad Watch...

(taken from the Disney film adaptation, 1951)

March Hare: Its going mad!

Alice: Oh, my goodness!

White Rabbit: Oh dear!

March Hare: It is going mad! Mad watch!

Mad Hatter: I don't understand, it's the best butter.

March Hare: Mad watch! Mad watch! Mad watch!

Mad Hatter: Oh, look! Oh my goodness!

March hare: There's only one way to stop a mad watch!

Mad Hatter: Two days slow, that's what it is. 

Greetings, everyone!  A VERY Merry Unbirthday to ALL!  Well, at least, that's the scene this excerpt from Disney's 1951 adaptation of Alice in Wonderland was taken from!   It's ALWAYS your unbirthday here in WONDERLAND :)

 For this week's challenge, we have a beautiful inspiration piece, found on the CraftStylish blog.  Actually, our Mad Hatter liked it so much that she tried to track it down but to no avail so far!   The Mad Hatter NEEDS this piece, LOL!  That beautiful flower, steampunk vintage gorgeousness and all the classic timepiece elements to this are just GORGEOUS and we know it will make a FABULOUS inspiration challenge- two days slow or not!

Your mission this week? Show us YOUR take on this "Mad" watch.  You can use the colors, play off the time piece, blue flower, color combos, steampunk theme...the possibilities are ENDLESS, just like the deadline for this week's challenge, HA!  To enter to WIN an awesome prize from MFT, just have your entry into the Oh, Alice! Blog by Friday, June 18th at 8pm CST!  Have a VERY MERRY time creating!
  For my card i used the gorgeous Alice and sentiment  from 'Beyond Wonderland' by this weeks sponsor MFT.  I created my card from some matte black cardstock, I used a scrap of blue paper for my bottom area and punched this on both sides to create a nice scalloped edge.  I then pricked holes along the centre so i could add a chain stitch detail in black ribbon. This was then added to my card with foam pads.  Then using Maya Road clock stamps, i created a background paper, stamped with black distressing ink, and heat embossed, i cut a large circle out of this paper, and distressed the edges.  Alice is coloured with a base of promarkers and then prismacolour pencils on top.  I stuck Alice to the card, then diecut my sentiment, added some pale blue gems to it, then added it to my card with foam pads.  For my embellishments i used a selection of paper roses, aswell as some pieces from an old watch.  To finish my card off I added a mix of clear and pale blue gems in various sizes.

I can't wait to see your take on the inspiration piece, have fun:)
