Vintage Alice in Wonderland

Happy Thursday! My first post today is for a challenge for DragonsDream Tag It On. If you have not yet checked out this challenge blog, I hope you will take a look. They have some great, unique challenges and an inspiring Design Team. This time around, the theme is to create a tag about Alice, Wonderland or Looking Glass. I first began with a tag in shades of blue and yellow, but deviated and decided to go with earth tones instead. Mushroom card stock was fashioned into a tag and embossed with a variety of Alice-related images from the Wonderland Collage plate by Artistic Outpost. To add texture, I stretched a re-purposed mesh bag from the grocery store across the tag. Additional images from the Wonderland Collage plate were stamped with Black StazOn ink onto white card stock and water colored with Pumice Stone, Tattered Rose, Scattered Straw, Broken China and the edges were distressed with Vintage Photo Distress Inks. Embossed clocks have black snap centers. Other embellishments include Ideology Spinners and a Philosophy Tag and vintage taupe seam binding ribbon. I hope you are having a wonderful day. Best Wishes, Yvonne
