Sorry I'm so Late
I made this card to enter a few of my favourite challenges - CD Sunday (stamped image plus item from CD), Paper Artsy (time) and Shopping Our Stash (paper piecing) .
This 'Alice' image is from My Craft Studio 'A Very Important Date' CD, and I have used it before, always cropped off as I think the face is too cartoonish but the lower body alone suggests a more classic Alice. I printed it onto patterned paper and paper pieced the skirt.
I stamped clock faces on the background (Prima stamps), stamped the mushrooms (Paper Artsy) and paper- pieced them with paper I'd inked in Victorian pink. ( Before sticking down the paper on the big mushroom, I did an unusual technique which involved accidentally dropping it into a mug containing the cold dregs of my tea!)
Then I stamped the caterpillar - this (and the mushrooms) are from a new Paper Artsy set and the main reason I bought it was for the caterpillar! I coloured it in, cut it out and covered it in Glossy Accents.
Finally, I cut out the sentiment on the Silhouette and covered it with Wink of Stella.
