A Vintage Alice

Today My Favorite Things is hosting a fun challenge at the Oh, Alice Challenge blog. It is an inspiration challenge based on this beautiful vintage necklace. So how perfect is the MFT stamp set, Costume From Wonderland, for this challenge!!

When I looked at the necklace, I thought, well I want to give Alice a little bit of a vintage look and I had some perfect paper from Webster Pages to get me started.

Alice is colored with Copics and I sponged the background with Tim Holtz Distressing Ink in Scattered Straw. My bottom border is created with the Die-namics Scalloped Scallop and Jumbo Scallop dies. Then I added lace, ribbon, a flourish from Pink Paislee, and a little clock I have had in my stash for ages.

Here is the inside with one of the sentiments for the set.

I hope you get a chance to play the challenge. There is a very nice MFT prize you could win!

Thanks for stopping by,

Melody
