Creative Expressions Calling Card Challenge

 Life started out boring with these three kraft storage stacking tubs from Do-Crafts. The top black small was turned upside down and painted black with Tim Holtz cracked paint, the second I coloured using a Stazon Red ink pad and just wiped it all over the tub until it there was no kraft colour showing. The last which was the most fun was a bit of what I call decoupage, images where slapped on with pva in a totally random fashion and then left to dry completely, then I used Tim HoltZ walnut distress ink pad to colour the edges and add a little aged effect

 I found a little red satin ribbon in my collection but it was a bit too in your face so I ran a black Stazon in pad over to tone it down and then added it around the black top box to make it look a bit more like the hat.

I recently took delivery of these wonderful playing card rubber stamps, they where actually the reason behind this creation and my love of Alice :D To be honest there is nothing special going on with them, they where stamped coloured using my Copics and then I added 3-D clear glass over the red hearts and then on the back an ATC stamp(forgot to take a pic to show soz) To make a place for the cards to stand I didn't want to cut into the box so I had some cute teapot and teacup charms which where stuck down, with Pinflair silicone glue, side by side but with enough room to slide the playing cards in & the three cards where then glued together and added when the glue had dried.
I am actually really rather chuffed with the result and had peeps wishing to buy it :D
