It is Wednesday and that means there is a new Challenge up over at the Stampotique Designers' Challenge blog. Today's theme was chosen by the lovely and very talented France Papillon and she this is what she said :
'We often expect cards on our birthday. How about surprising someone with an unbirthday card? With or without Alice in Wonderland inspiration, make a happy unbirthday card!'
So that is what I did !
I started this card with a piece of white card stock. I used a stencil and Sand paste from the Deco Art Media Line to create the arrows.. It gives a lot of texture. Next I dusted off my Twinkling H2O's. The finished card is very shimmery. Unfortunately you can't really see that here...
Next I stamped a few circles on the background and then It was time to stamp 'Mad Hatter' and the balloons from 'Romek'.
They were coloured with Copic Markers and cut out. I made a little slit under Mad Hatters arm for the cords of the balloons. Next I coloured some natural twine and tied it to the balloons. They were then adhered to the card. I slipped the twine in the hole under Mad Hatters arm and then adhered him also. I used a drop of glue to secure the twine.
The sentiment was made using the 'Happy birthday' stamp and a Dymo Labeler. I adhered it to the card on top of some strips of washi tape.
I used the same washitape around the card base before adhering the panel on top.
I used the following stamps:
Romek (for the balloons)
