Emergency Crafters DT card - Saturday 2nd March

Good Morning Friends!

Yesterday was a write off as far as much more prepping for the workshops and craft fair is  concerned, but it was a really enjoyable day!
 I walked over to Chipping Sodbury to meet two dear friends for lunch in a wonderful deli we have there. I left early so that I could call in my friend Amy's shop..she had just had a delivery from Crafty Individuals, one of my favourite stamp Companies, so it I had a rummage..I love them all, it would have been rude not to buy one wouldn't it? :) I also got one of their masks and some inks, plus a birthday present for my dear friend Paola in Italy...even though her birthday isn't for a few months!

Then I met Grace and Genevieve...we all used to work together at the charity I still work for...Grace went on to work for a Carers Centre for a while and after finishing her Phd, Gen became a lecturer at Bristol Uni. Grace and I see each other fairly regularly, but we hadn't seen Gen for 5 years..anyway, it was just like we were all together just last week - it was lovely!

Now to today's card, which is my Design Team card for the new Emergency Crafter's has a wonderland theme, but if you want to enter a card or project featuring rabbits, that's fine too!

When I had my Dreamweaver stencils out earlier in the week, I made two backgrounds with the clock and cogs..this time I used bronze paste and a mixture of micas again and heat embossed until it bubbled, but used a bronze matt metallic card. I matted and layered this on a bright blue card and a base layer of the bronze.

The White Rabbit is  from Indigo Blu's Alice in Wonderland Stamp set 2. He is stamped with black archival and then heat embossed with clear powder to give him some shine. I wanted him  to compliment the blue layer and also to jump out from the background, so I coloured him in blue, yellow and red promarkers. I adhered him to the front of the card with a long armed brad and he does actually turn around like a  clock hand. 

The quote is from a Polkadoodles Wonderland stamp set, I heat embossed with clear powder after stamping on cream card and colouring with Vintage Photo. Then I scrunched it up a bit to give it a worn look. I used to 'screw' brads to fix it to the card..just a bit of fun...

Thanks for stopping by, you can find details of the challenge over at Emergency Crafters
