To begin with I took a piece of plain cream card and blended Antique Linen DI all over it. I then randomly sprayed an area of the card with the Dylusions spray and dried it with a heat gun. I then inked up the Calligraphic Mat 12 with black Archival Ink and stamped directly onto the inked cardstock. Next, I took some Vintage Photo DI and blended the edges of the card for an aged look, before applying some more Vintage Photo DI through a stencil. I then applied some of the Snow Cap Adirondack paint through the same stencil and finally, used one of the border stamps to complete my background.
I stamped the Mad Hatter's Tea Party outline onto watercolour card and then using the Distress Marker Pens, I scribbled some ink onto my craft mat and with a waterbrush, handpainted the image. When the inks were dry, I blended the background with DI's and added the completed artwork to a matt of black card and adhered it onto my background.
I then made a tag from some more of the cream card, blended with Antique Linen DI and then stamped "dream" onto the tag and added some Chit Chat stickers and computer generated wording, to create my quote. I matted the tag onto black card and added some seam binding dyed with Crushed Olive Distress Stain before attaching this to the card.
Finally, I stamped two of the small butterflies from the "Tick Tock" stamp plate onto Grungepaper and coloured them with Wild Honey Distress Stain, before carefully cutting them out and attaching them to the card front.
