Alice, the White Rabbit and a situation - also, use at least one stamp
My heart sank initially because I don't possess any Alice stamps or indeed stamps that could be used to improvise! In fact, I've only appreciated the book since I've become an adult - as a child I didn't like it and my own daughter wasn't keen either.
The 'digi' stamp idea came to mind but that was a bridge too far (no offence to those that use them!) so in the end I trotted off to the charity shop to find an Alice book which I could use for images. I'm not into chopping books up but I've decided that buying one in a charity shop and then mistreating it is OK because I've contributed to a charity and the book gets a new lease of life. . . . .
Enough rambling: I decided to make a 3D tag which shows a little room beyond a door - very tricky - and I also changed the script a little for my 'situation'. My situation is this:
The Queen of Hearts makes the White Rabbit a prince; Alice grows wings after drinking the potion and they have an argument about who is in the most enviable position. Alice states it's her because she is free to go where ever she pleases, whenever she pleases, due to her new wings. The Rabbit of course says it's him because he has a crown (just love the look of him wearing a crown!) and is therefore able to do anything he pleases, whenever he pleases AND it doesn't matter if he's late because everyone has to wait for him. . . . . . I can just image how many far fetched situations they could get into whilst trying to prove they are the winner in this argument!
Silly I know, but we're all allowed to dream aren't we. . . . . . .?
I'm also going to show my work at:
Try It On A Tuesday who this week have an 'Anything Goes' challenge.
Fab 'n' Funky who ask for 'Anything But A Card'.
Here's what I made:
(apologies for so many photos but I wanted to show all the bits and pieces of the design - also failed miserably to get them in the order I wanted!!)
|A side view of the tag - shows that the whole piece is basically triangular in shape |
(side dimensions are not equal). Sorry but this was a pain to photograph and is not as good as it could be!
|This image gives some idea of the 'room' behind. The rabbit was cut from the book; his crown has had microbeads stuck to it and some little gems as jewels - love the way his ears stick up through his crown! In true rabbit style, he has a pink eye!|
|Lollipop flowers made the same way as the flower in Alice's hair but secured to bamboo sticks and attached. I wanted the flowers larger than life to fit in with the Alice tale.|
|The sentiments are intended to make the reader develop their own answer to the question posed. These were made using a label maker and then inked with distress (easier than connecting laptop to printer, cutting out, inking etc.!!).|
Hope you like this little bit of fun! I've really enjoyed making it. Why don't you have a dream and link up a creation to DragonsDream? The Design Team work is worth seeing even if you decide not to enter!
Thanks for looking.
