One of my favorite stories as a child was Alice in Wonderland, so when I saw the Mad Hatter’s Tea Party Rubber Stamp Collection at the Oshawa Scrapfest in the fall being sold by Bizzy B (a local stamping and scrapping store), I just HAD to buy it! There’s actually three stamp sets that are a part of this collection, and of course I just HAD to buy all three LOL. I’ve been admiring them since then, but hadn’t actually gotten around to using them until today.
I used a variety of fun techniques to put together this card. I die cut the frame for the image out of a lightweight chipboard with my Spellbinders oval and scalloped oval Nestabilities and my Grand Calibur. I then covered it in Matte Accents and sprinkled on Champagne Vintage Glass Glitter. I had forgotten to precolor my frame, so afterwards, I covered up any little bits of white with my Gold Acrylic Adirondack Paint Dabber. Since the color of the gold paint was so different from the color of the glass glitter, I ended up painting directly over the glass glitter with some more gold paint – I didn’t totally cover it though. In order to carry that same gold theme onto the rest of the card I brushed a little of the paint across the designer paper (which is from Stampin’ Up!’s newsprint collection), I also used the dabber top to brush some along the edges of the matted DP. I also used the gold paint to paint over the Brushed Gold CS, because once the Brushed Gold was on the card, it didn’t quite match everything.
Here are the supplies I used:
