How You Dodoing?

Hey friends! It's Amanda from Twiddler's Nook today with an epic Alice in Wonderland card. I'm so happy with how this card ended up. Taking a simple idea from my head, adding, twisting and turning and ending up with a final product that I just love. I hope you love it too!

To create it I started by blending distress oxide inks on a panel and then heat embossed the Woodgrain Background with gold embossing powder. Then I stamped images from Alice and Dodo and colored them with my copics. Once they were cut out with my scan-n-cut I realized I needed something else. I die cut a rust colored frame and then took it one step further and stamped and colored a mushroom image from Smokin' Caterpillars. I also used the scan-n-cut to cut this out and then moved on to assembling my card.

I used liquid glue to adhere the mushroom image to the embossed panel. Then, I added foam strips to the back of the frame and stuck it down. Last, I added a combination of foam squares and liquid glue to my images and adhered them in place as well. I decided to heat emboss sentiments from Dodo in the same gold embossing powder as the woodgrain and cut them into blocks. Then I added foam squares to the back and put them in place.

Moving on to finishing touches, I just added a few spots of glossy accents to Alice's shoes and headband; the dodo's hat, beak and feet; and the rabbit's glasses, nose and buttons.

This was such a fun card to build. I hope you have found some fun inspiration to create something wonderful.

I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!
