Splendidly Dressed

"After a time she heard a little pattering of feet in the distance, and she hastily dried her eyes to see what was coming. It was the White Rabbit returning, splendidly dressed, with a pair of white kid gloves in one hand and a large fan in the other: he came trotting along in a great hurry, muttering to himself as he came, `Oh! The Duchess, the Duchess! Oh! Won’t she be savage if I've kept her waiting?”-- Chapter 2; Alice's Adventures in Wonderland
All this month Stampendous has been playing along with the Altered Alice blog. Both Design Teams have created amazing projects featuring the Stampendous Perfectly Clear Wonderland set. I had so much fun creating this triptych. After die cutting the panels, I stamped them using the Stampendous Cling Music Score stamp. I then dry embossed and inked the panels. Don’t you love how the Dreamweaver Opto Checkerboard looks over the music manuscript? I cut the one panel in half, creating the side panels and adhered them to the center panel. I stamped the tag, the keyhole and the bottles on shrink plastic, trimmed and then channeling my wonderland mojo, shrunk them. The key was diecut on paper. The key and the keyhole were embossed with the Aged Gold Embossing Enamel. Before adhering the embellishments, I sprinkled Aged Gold Embossing Enamel and Deep Impressions Clear Embossing Enamel randomly over the panels and melted the powder from heating from underneath. Alice and her cat were stamped, colored, fussy-cut and then added to the panels with foam dimensional adhesive. The final step was twisting and looping ribbon and adhering it to the side panels. Be sure to visit both the Altered Alice blog and the Stampendous blog to see the challenge creations, as well as play along. The prize for this challenge is this Wonderland clear set.
