Tea Party!

Hello! As soon as I saw the Alice Sentiments I knew I wanted to play around with them to make background papers! For this card I first colored my main image Alice Mad Tea Party from Elaine Cox's Alice Series (sheet 2, plate 35). I then rubbed inks that matched the main colors in my image on a sheet of white cardstock. I randomly stamped the sentiments in Versamark ink, embossed in clear, then rubbed black ink all over. I really like the way the random colors appear, although I do wish I had spread the words out a bit more....

The Details:
Stamps: Alice Sentiments (Plate 37), Elaine Cox Alice Mad Tea Party (sheet 2, Plate 35) both from Sweet Pea Stamps
Paper: Orchid Opulence (SU) Whisper White (SU), White for image (Paper Trey Ink)
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Basic Black (SU), Misc Dew Drops Versamagic colors (sorry I forgot to write them down as I was working)
Alice Hair: E50,E53,E55
Hatter Hair: YR00,YR04,YR07,YR09
Clothes: V15,V06,V09
Misc: Clear embossing powder (SU), Stardust Stickles

Have a magical day!
