Tea Anyone?

Hi everyone.  Today Sassy Studio Designs is sponsoring not one, but two challenge blogs.  The first is Altered Elusions and their challenge is Mixed Media.  I wasn't quite sure where to start with this one.  I was cleaning my room and found some fat quarters I forgot about in my quilting stash.  The teapots on the fabric made me think of Alice in Wonderland and luckily SSD has an Alice image.  I colored her with Copics but unfortunately I did it while watching TV and hanging pictures up in my living room.  I had focus issues causing me to mess her hair up a little.  

The second challenge blog is Sunday Sketch & Stamp.  Here is the sketch they provided.
This gave me my layout.  For the bottom left corner, I used chipboard.  I coated it with several layers of ultra thick embossing powder.  While it was hot, I stamped it.   Then I used some rub-n-buff to bring out the impression of the stamp.  I also added some lace and a cute little lady bug brad.

Please check out these challenges and join in.  Have a great day.

I am entering my card into these challenges:

Dream Valley #38 - Die cuts and punches
Inky Impressions - Embossing
Art Impressions #74 - Stitching or fabric
Squiggle Stamps - Use your stash
Crazy Amigo - Dies and punches
Bearly mine - Anything goes

Thanks for stopping by.
