Time For Tea

This is a 3D box card for Mother's Day. I started it at the weekend and finished it last night. I was trying to complete it in time for the monthly competition over at Sassy Studio Designs but I missed it, so instead I am entering it into 5 challenges! Allsorts Challenge No. 41 - Mother's Day Creative Card Crew - Celebration Fussy & Fancy No. 5 - Movies The Pink Elephant No. 56 - Add green Simon Says Stamps - Mother's Day/Girly I took my inspiration from the latest Alice in Wonderland movie to be released this Friday and used the digital images from Sassy Design Studios. My mum loves a cup of tea so the Mad Hatter tea party was perfect for my project. I made a box and lined the inside with Basic Grey Eerie papers. Although you cannot see it I put in a sloping floor in the hope to create depth. The table was made from a scrap piece of card covered in Basic Grey Bitter Sweet paper. I used a Spellbinders Flower die to cut out two different sized flowers many times. Each flower was attached to thin strips of acetate of varying lengths so that they bob around. In the corners I attached mushroom embellishments again at varying heights. The images were coloured with copics, cut out and shaped on the edges so as they were not so flat. On the front of the box I attached a Fancy Pants Glitter Cut Tree to add more interest. Copics used: Cat - V06, V12, RV02, RV04 Mad Hatter - YG03, YG23, Y00, Y02, Y21, BG01, BG05, BG10 Rabbit - C1, C5, C7, W1, BG10, R27, R37 Caterpillar - Y00, Y17, Y38 Skin - E000, E00, E02, E21, R20 Stickles glue to add bling on the flowers. Thanks for looking. Jenny
