CuRiOuSeR and cUrIoUsEr........

Hi folks! It's a great week to join in with the fun over on Dare U 2 Digi Stamp.....'Anything Goes!' So get printing those delightful digi stamps and let your imagination run wild. I had so much fun making this card. It's the first time 'Alice' had come out to play.
I dug out a really ancient Provocraft paper stack that's been tucked away for years and found this backing paper. It was a great base to add the stamped pocket watches, teapots and teacups (See D's) I added some blue and White Gingham paper which I matted onto black cardstock (cut with deckle edged scissors) then some blue velvet ribbon on top of that. I cut a circle scalloped funky foam frame with my Nestabilities. The sheet behind the frame is from an old book which I had also stamped on. I used a Martha Stewart punch to make the flowers, again from the pages of the old book. I shaped them with a ball tool, inked the edges and adhered them with dimensional glue gel. The pocket watch and lock were die cut using Quickutz dies. I coloured Alice with Copic Markers. The letters are also die cut from Funky Foam using Quickutz 'dragonfly' alphabet plate. I finished the card off with a small ribbon bow. The whole card was based on the Sketch over on Sketch Saturday.... only thing was I couldn't fit the 3 panels on my design as the would have covered too much of the stamped backing paper.
Ciao for now!
