When I saw the new Alice-inspired images, I just knew I would use The Mad Scrapper ... in honor of Carolyn, of course! Oh my gosh, don't you just love her hat full of crafty stuff? I cut out a separate set of "tools", colored them, made a slit in the hat, and tucked them in so they appear as if they really are in her hat. I also cut out the hat trim and the little bows on her dress. (sorry for the blurry close-up. I had to use DD's camera.) The paper is from the BasicGrey Origins pack that I won last month for the BBB Green Challenge. It's so outside my normal color range but I love it! I jazzed up her corset & bow with some tiny amber rhinestones, and mirrored those with some big honkin' rhinestones in the corners. And that gorgeous sheer gold-edged ribbon was salvaged from a gift bag - yay for recycling!
As always, we have HOP PRIZES! There will be 3 winners chosen from the comments left on certain DT blogs, but it's a secret which blogs we'll draw from! The prize for these winners is their choice of 1 Free BBB Image! So be sure to leave some love all along the way! Blog Hop Winners will be announced Sunday night on the Creation Station blog. And there is a prize package for the randomly selected winner of our Inaugural Challenge, so be sure to check that out at the end of the hop!
Your next stop is Rachel's blog! Enjoy the ride, and when you finally arrive at the Creation Station, you’ll see our Inaugural Challenge is posted and waiting for you!
Thanks for "hopping" by!
