Gingersnap Creations GC133: Chestnut Theme Challenge - Use a Set
This is my first entry for the Gingersnap challenge but when I saw the theme I thought of my new Alice Octopode Factory stamps. I created these ATCs for a swap on the Alice theme on UK Stampers. I had seen an example of a Triptych ATC and decided I had to try it.After working out how to create the Triptych I cut out some of Tim's Holtz's festive craft paper and then stamped each image onto cream card. I then created masks for each stamp and sprayed each card with a different colour. I used Dylusions Inks for the Queen and Mad Hatter and Cosmic Shimmer Chalk inks for Alice and the white rabbit page boy.
I am going to use the masks for another set of ATCs as I like how the colour went on them.
I used a key charm, pearl brads, ric rac and part of an old necklace to decorate the front of the white rabbit ATC.
For the front of the mad hatter I cut out the watch face and tape from a sheet of lost and found and added liberal amounts of crackle glaze and ink.
Because I kept thinking of the Looking glass and Alice I used some metal to cover the front and inside of her ATC. I added the eat me and drink me stamps from Octopode.
You can see more of the front of the Queen in these photos. I coloured roses red (of course) and added red velvet ribbon and hearts cut from paper and stamped crowns.
