Down the Rabbit Hole

Everyone wants to go down the Rabbit Hole with Alice. So we are going to create our very own Rabbits Hole card using pages from a vintage Alice in Wonderland book!

If you don't not have any old books, you can easily find them in charity shops, Jumble sales, and online auction sites.

I carefully removed 7 pages from an old vintage Alice in Wonderland book

I cut a circle in the first page and decreased the size of this circle on each following page.

I edged the inside of the circle with brown ink and adhered the pages on top of one another using clear 3D sticky pads

I watercoloured my stamped images of Alice, Leaves and a small Butterfly, and fussy cut each of them.

I mixed some Ruby Slippers paint into a spoonful of fine texture paste and swept it into one of the roses on the stencil.

I used a versamarker inkpad to stamp the script onto my 7x7 card blank. I used Teal luscious over the versamarker dabbing it lightly with a brush.

When the Rose was dry I brushed ultra thick Slap it on over it to give it a glossy finish.

I adhered Alice, the leaves and rose onto the Rabbit Hole

I adhered the rabbit hole onto the card and arranged the leaves and butterfly around it.

I added a finishing touch by stamping Alice onto the front of the envelope.I think I may add some colour to Alice...

There is lots more inspiration on the Indigoblu blog

  5. Hi Jannet, thanks so much for your comment on my stamped rainbow circle card at Addicted to Stamps and More. You asked if the MISTI helps with pressing down stamps. It sure does!! Especially bigger and background stamps. I don't have much strength in my hands and find it very hard to apply pressure evenly on stamp images. Because the stamp is on such a big, thick plastic surface plate on the MISTI, you can use your whole hand and body weight to help transfer the ink to paper. And if it doesn't quite work, you just ink up and press again!! I wasn't sure if I would use a MISTI and it took me a while to remember to use it instead of my stamping blocks but I use it for nearly all stamped images now and its changed my card making life. Also I shake a lot with my hands, so the MISTI takes away the chance of me shaking and ruining yet another pieces of card stock!! Definitely worth the investment!!! Hope this helps and by the way, your rabbit hole project is incredible, I wouldn't even know where to start to create something amazing like this!!
