Welcome back everyone! I hope your week is off to a wonderful start. Today I’m playing with one of my very favorite stamp sets from the Miss Ink Stamps Alice release. The Mad Hatter is one of my very favorite characters so I wanted to color him up in some fun, different colors.
I started this card by stamping and coloring my images with copics. Then I used my scan-n-cut to cut them all out and set them aside to start on the rest of my card. I die cut an Avery Elle wonky frame in black for some contrast. Then, using that and my images as a guide, I stamped and heat embossed my sentiment from Madness in gold. I used the Wonky Checker stencil with some red ink to match the colors I used on the Hatter. This panel was trimmed to 4×5.25 and popped up on a white card base with foam tape.
I buffed away any ink on my embossed sentiment with a clean rag. Then the wonky frame was popped up with foam strips and I started adhering my images. They are all attached with a combination of foam squares and liquid glue where they overlap the frame.
For finishing touches on my card, I used a combination of glossy accents and Wink of Stella glitter brush pen to bring interest to various parts of the images.
I was afraid that I would be rigid about the colors I used on these images but it was really fun to color them all in a limited palette that is completely different from anything I’ve previously imagined before.
Also, I just got a new light box to take photos in and tried it out on this card. I’d love to hear what you think about cards on a plain white background versus backgrounds like I typically use with the wood panels, doilies and foliage. I’m trying to find a happy medium and further myself along the way.
I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!
