We have a "just for fun" post today here in Wonderland that doesn't follow a book excerpt or poem...just a good ol' fashioned HALLOWEEN theme! After all, tomorrow IS Halloween and it's time to showcase some fun projects, and many of us are using the Graphic 45 special line of papers, Hallowe'en in Wonderland!
Today our VERY generous DT member Ky is offering up a set of Alice stamps by Elaine Cox! Even more of a reason to get creepy or crafty this week and show us what you can do!
I also stamped one of my new FAVORITE stamps - the distressed bingo card - onto kraft card! Isn't it great? It is in the Stampin' Up! Holiday Mini catalog, and you can order it through my sister if you like! I overstamped it with another SU stamp in orange Distress Ink and sponged it with gold.
I made a stacked orange pumpkin by layering oval punches, so it is three layers deep and has a lot of dimension. I colored the orange paper with orange and rust markers to add the pumpkin lines and shadows, sponged it with Distress orange, drew on a fun fanged vampire face and assembled the layers with foam mounting tape. I added some leafy punches beneath and a brown stem, then curled skinny strips of olive card stock to make the curly tendrils of vine. I sponged the purple card base with black Distress Ink, then adhered the bingo card with ATG tape. Then the pumpkin and Alice panel were adhered with more foam tape; you can see all the dimension in the photo above.
I punched embossed owls from gold and kraft card and drew in details with a black pen and colored them in. Then I drew some little bats, coloring them in and adding white gel pen dots for the eyes. The owls were adhered with more dimensional foam mounting tape. The bodies of the bats were glued down and the wings were curved up away from the base.
