I'm Late! I'm Late for a very Important Date!

Well, not really late, there's still plenty of time to play in the challenges that I created my card for, I'm just late in getting my post up today!  I used the sketch at Skipping Stones Designs, along with the color challenge (Blue and Yellow) at Altered Alice.

Since the Altered Alice challenge is based on Alice in Wonderland AND the challenge is being sponsored by Artistic Outpost (you have a chance to win a $14 Artistic Outpost Gift Certificate), I've used one of the beautiful images from Wonderland Collage.  I have to admit, I was quite challenged by Blue and Yellow, so I brought in some neutrals to help me out.


All papers are from the Graphic 45 Halloween line.  The images are stamped in Ranger Black Archival on Watercolor paper, then colored with Ranger Distress Inks (Broken China/Mustard).  All edges are sponged with Brushed Corduroy.

Details:
Stamps - Artistic Outpost Wonderland Collage
Ink - Ranger Black Archival, Distress Inks Broken China, Mustard, Brushed Corduroy
Card Stock - Black, Watercolor, Kraft
Other - Black Hemp, Oval Punch, Spellbinders Oval Dies, Big Shot, Graphic 45 Pattern paper, Ink Blending Foam, H20 Brush, Craft Mat

Thanks so much for creating this for The Altered Alice! It is just lovely and would make a great guy card too! I love the ad text and diagonal text patterns you chose for the background - the two different angles of text add a lot of energy! I love all the layers and just that pop of blue and yellow. All the AO DT creations are featured on the blog this week, please stop by and check it out. :-)
