Be Who You Would Seem To Be....

I would seem to be late with my post...but not quite.  I'm just in the nick of time for the second week in a row LOL.  As you know I didn't get my last post up in time for the Kraftin Kimmie challenge so I wanted to make sure I got it done on time this week.  I checked their blog today and they had posted the new challenge for this week & voila I'm done.  So I would seem to be late but...I'm actually on time.  Their challenge this week is a sketch which you can find here.  Here is what I came up with!  Sorry the picture isn't the greatest, it's a little blurry but so are my eyes at the moment LOL!

Update: Since this is another Alice in Wonderland project I went and check out the Altered Alice site again and I can also enter it for the "anything goes" challenge".  So I'm going to do that now.  :)


I stamped the Cheshire Cat (kraftin kimmie stamps) on white Gina K 120lb card stock with memento black ink and colored him with copic markers ( BG70, 72, 75, 78 - R00, 02, C3 & Y19).  I cut the image and mat out with spellbinders large & small petite ovals and edged the white oval with versa magic ocean depth chalk ink. I didn't have a ribbon that would match (even though I have 3 drawers full of ribbon!!!) so, I colored a white ribbon with copic marker BG75.  The flowers are by prima and I inked up a inkadinkado script stamp with Aegean blue versa magic ink and stamped it on both the cream colored flowers.  I used kaiser craft blue grey rhinestones on the flowers and on the top right corner for a little more detail.  I stamped the verse stamp on the patterned paper with black memento ink - it kind of gets lost in the picture, looks better up close.  The patterned paper is from the basic grey out of print line.  Oh! I also used a little bit  of clear glaze pen on his eyes.

Well I actually have a day off tomorrow so maybe I'll get a chance to spend some more time in my studio.  Have a great holiday on Monday everyone!
