It's Always Tea Time!

Hey friends! This is Amanda from Twiddler's Nook today sharing a Mad Hatter tea card. I just love the Alice series of stamps and it had been a while since I pulled them out so obviously it was past time to do so!

To create my card, I started with stamping images from Tea Party and colored them with my copic markers. I used the scan-n-cut to cut them all out and adhered the pieces to the table that I wanted sitting on top. Next, I inked up a kraft cardstock panel with the lava lam stencil and some brown dye ink. Then I layered the Ins & Outs Marquis window stencil and inked it up first with green and then dark gray. I like layering colors of ink blending for subtle shadows and hints of color.

Next I layered the Marquid frame over the panel and spread Thermoweb transfer gel blanco through it. I set it aside to dry for a bit and then heated up my laminator. Once it was ready, I ran it through with emerald watercolor deco foil. I removed it and began placing my images.

After much deliberation I sliced the table in half and adhered it to the card front with liquid glue. Then I popped the Hatter up with foam squares and placed the panel in my MISTI. I chose a sentiment from Tea Party and stamped it with brown ink.

I absolutely couldn't waste the other half of the table or the March Hare that I had originally colored either...so let's take a peek inside my card!

Sometimes it's fun to bring the scene into your card too! I decided I wanted another sentiment inside this time so I chose one from wonderland wisdom and stamped it in the same brown ink.

After that I moved back to the front of the card for some simple glossy accents in various places for finishing touches.
