Little Red Wagon & Kraftin' Kimmie

It's Wednesday time and it's my final dual post for the month. My guest design spot with Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps is coming to an end soon (sob!). It has been a lot of fun, working with the fabulous Kimmie and her talented DT.

This week over at Little Red Wagon, Jayne is our wonderful hostess and her challenge is called BUTTONS & BOWS. Now please note the AND, so that means using both!

If you want to join along with the Kraftin' Kimmie Wonderful Wednesday Challenge, well the rules are pretty simple. Remember to use a Kraftin' Kimmie stamp and create something new (card, layout, altered project), any theme, style or design because for Wonderful Wednesday it is ANYTHING goes! At the end of the month one winner will be chosen from the submissions (for the month) and receive a Kraftin' Kimmie PRIZE! I'd say it's time to get KRAFTY!

For my card I used the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamp Alice In Wonderland. She was so much fun to colour. I loved colouring all of the folds in the dress. Since I had a rather large embellishment to place on my card with the pocket watch, I decided to keep my BUTTONS and BOWS to a single button and a twine bow.

I created a distressed look for this card inking and running my scissors around the edges of all the paper. I used paper from MME Blush and Authentique Freebird collections. The tiny Queen of Hearts playing card is from Kaiser Crafts.

The image is coloured with Copic markers.

As soon as I spotted the Tim Holtz pocket watch at Michaels, I knew I was going to use it with Alice. I added a few gears and a spinner also from Tim Holtz and the clock face inside the watch is a stamp from Graphic 45. The flowers are from Michaels (Recollections). 

To adhere the watch to applied a generous amount of glossy accents to the back and stuck it in place on the card. I then tucked in the flowers and added more Glossy Accents around everything. It seems stuck down pretty well.

Inside the card I re-stamped Alice, added the sentiment which comes with the image and an additional birthday greeting. I also like to add additional patterned paper and embellishments (playing cards) to tie in with the front of the card.

Join us over at Little Red Wagon and play along with this weeks BUTTONS and BOWS challenge. While you are there check out the wonderful creations by the other Girlfriends. Lots of inspiration from the team. Don't forget to link up your projects at the LRW blog.
