Alice, the White rabbit and a strange situation..for dragon dreams tag it on dt.

Still so chuffed to have been asked to be part of this fab dt...
this fortnight the challenge is one well out of my comfort zone..and so it was a  real challenge...all the details of the recipe can be found here.
you need Alice, the white rabbit and a situation...
Make sure you pop across to see all the dts fab makes here and
 maybe join in  the fun and spread the word!
there is now a chance to be a dragon dreamboat and be picked to  feature
in a top three dreamboats each fortnight....

So here is my tag: ( which had to include Alice, the white rabbit and a situation)

I had to acquire some Alice stamps , as mine had gone the way of eBay
for different stash...so I better keep this set safe!
these are from artstic outpost , called wonderland collage

I started by making the background, using a take on Tim Holtz rusted enamel.
.a technique I love ...but with twist..
and the embossing powder was a special make your own blend!
i love the way you can emboss patches and ink through....which I did with black soot DI.

the stars and butterfly wings were embossed
using own the same homemade concoction
...and I filled the little bottle with it...

The images were lightly coloured 
and I added some picket fence marker to Mr rabbit....
The little tag for the bottle was cut using a Tim sizzix die....
tiny tabs and tags
and the sentiment is an all time favourite from Wendy vecchi.... its face art.

This was a real adventure,
not only for Alice and the rabbit but for me too....
let me know if you think it was a happy ending?!
I am entering this for the following challenges :

  1. Definitely a happy ending here Trace, this is an amazing tag, made all the better by your own concoction (you will have to market it - lol) because it is a gorgeous colour. Love those stamps too, Alice seem very popular at the moment so you will surely get more use out of them. A x
