Off With His Quirky Head!

Or maybe not!! It would be a bit messy! But it's a good clue to the theme of the new challenge, which has already started over on The Quirky Craft's Challenge Blog It should get your brain juices thinking hard (mine shrivelled up and still hasn't quite recovered yet! but no one will notice!) This time the new Challenge is being sponsored by...dah dah dah daaaaah!!

**The Stamp Boutique**

The winner will receive 5 digital stamps of their choice from Tracey's Boutique!
Well, what's the challenge then? Oh yes, I forgot!! This fortnights challenge over on Quirky Crafts has been set by Cazzy and the theme is...

Alice In Wonderland!

I'm sure even those of you who have never read the book or seen the cartoon or even the films, still know the basic story. Girl, sees a white talking rabbit (with watch) follows it, (as you would) falls down a very deep hole (survives) and meets all kinds of weird people and very strange animals... (sounds like my every day life!) Some freebie Alice images can be found HERE. Can't be made any bigger but they are fun to play with!
So what we'd like to see in your crafty makes this time is something you'd find in the story. A white rabbit... a watch, a smiley cat or a Mad Hatter! Teapots, mice, caterpillars, turtles or even a Jabberwocky!
Now, I've made two DT cards for this challenge. One using an image from our lovely sponsors (That's a rabbit too!) and this one using the White Rabbit cartoon image you can buy from Bugaboo. I'll show you the other card when I've finished it!
The backing paper was a freebie, (some time ago) from the Simply Cards and PaperCraft Magazine.
I made the Drink Me bottle and the paint brush and my own back ground scene, then coloured everything using Promakers. The flowers where punched out of scraps of white papers, which had been half coloured red (They painted the white roses red in the story) There's a dollop of red Stickles glitter on the 'roses' too and some fine micro glitter on the white rabbit's bow-tie. The rabbit was printed out twice, and the second one fixed over the first to give him a 3D affect. (effect?)
The key was a brad (by Woodware) but I cut it's legs off (ouch, cruel beast!) and used a bit of florist's wire to attach it to the sentiment.
The font is a freebie, GoodDog Cool. There's a link on the post below this one to where you can download it, along with GoodDog.
Please pop over to the Challenge Blog and have a look at what the rest of the Design Team have come up with, including of course the fabulous make from our Guest designer!
