Ace of Rabbit!

Ever since I saw this wonderful Alice stamp set by Stampendous, I wanted to make an Ace of Hearts card with the White Rabbit holding the heart! I finally had some time to make it happen and I'm so pleased with how it turned out.  This is my second entry for our Stampendous sponsored challenge on The Altered Alice to show us your Sunday best with a splendidly dressed project!

I began by stamping the White Rabbit and Alice on scraps of Kraft card stock and then coloring them in with Prismacolor pencils. I love this look as the pencils are thickly pigmented and fairly opaque. I trimmed out Alice, leaving a margin of the Kraft showing all the way around, and I trimmed the White Rabbit and chomped the corners for the middle of my playing card. I love it that this stamp set includes the card corner stamp, the A with the heart underneath! I sponged the edges of everything with Fired Brick Distress Ink. I tucked a real playing card behind just for fun and to create some interesting angles.

I cut a Spellbinders Fancy Tag and sponged it with Antique Linen and Fired Brick Distress Ink, and stamped the beautifully lettered stamp from the set that says "Sorry I'm late. . . " and threaded some red ribbon through.
For the card base, I made my own patterned paper on Kraft by stamping most of the fun small images in this set, alternating the heart and Queen of Hearts mini playing card in Lady Bug Red Memento ink and the cute Cheshire Cat and the pocket watch in London Fog Memento. I stamped the tile floor stamp across the bottom in Tuxedo Black Memento ink. I embossed a strip of black with a Cuttlebug border embossing folder with the card suits, which I colored with Copics and sponged with Fired Brick Distress Ink. I mounted Alice, the cards, and the fancy tag with dimensional foam tape. I finished it up with criss-crossed ribbon and a multi-loop bow.

Be sure to hop on over to The Altered Alice and see all the amazing entries in this month's contest. There is still time - show us your Sunday best with a "splendidly dressed" card, using ribbon, lace, frills, however you interpret your Sunday best!

  2. Hi Lynne!!
    This is fantastic, gorgeous. I really love the way you used the set (the homemade dp and playing card) And the red looks great against the Kraft.
    I hope you are well :)

  3. Ps. GORGEOUS coloring!! I still can't work my pencils like that. Which colors did you use for Aluce's skin? And the rabbit, is it white with some black and some of the wrm greys? Did u use a base before laying down the white?

  4. Gorgeous Lymne, I love the rabbit holding the heart and the embossed trim matches your background perfectly. The Spellbinders label is stunning and works so well with the sentiment. Beautiful layout and colouring too. Tracy x
