TIO #121 - Alice & the Rabbit Situation - Opps! Out of the Bag...

Hi... over at DragonsDream Tag It On, my design team have excelled themselves with their entries for our lastest challenge - Alice and the Rabbit Situation, lead this fortnight, by May.Why not visit the blog to see their creations, be inspired, and join in!! The work on their own blogs is WELL worth a visit too...

So what did I come up with? Well, the recipe calls for Alice, the Rabbit and a situation. I dreamed the rabbit hole, swirling round, and all the consequences of Alice following the rabbit down... so I envisaged all the characters spilling out of the book as the rabbit reads....
 The rabbit is minding his own business, when a great gallumphing girl begins to drift out of the pages.To follow are lots of other images, characters rising up and out of the book to have their own adventures...
 Here he is in close up! I have used the My Craft Studio disc images, as I don't possess any Alice stamps. Awww!!! I fussy cut him out then made a decal-scissors-cut black shadow to make him stand out. The book image is decoupaged
 This pic shows a GIANT Alice, slowly drifting from the book, so much bigger than all the rest...
 Here you can see a corner of my background. I created this from Tim Holtz  stamps and distress inks. embossed with clear ep - well,  when don't I??!! I used the new specialty matte coated stamping paper and it is FABULOUS!! However, I think it is rather expensive per sheet and therefore too much to use for an "ordinary" project... I just needed to have a play with it!!
 This one shows the twins off as they emerge, and how the watch and the tea and cards just keep moving outwards from the page, as the rabbit looks on - rather wistfully I thought??
 Hope you are liking the 3D quality of this tag, and the texture used... I love how the colours have blended together, creating a garish dream-like backdrop...
Here is the whole thing again, then. I am very pleased with how it turned out and more especially how wonderfully well my design team members have given us their interpretations... do go and have a ickle look at the Dream blog, you won't regret it!!

Thanks for looking and leaving comments. I value every one, and they certainly keep me going when my pain is bad!!
Love and Light
