Here is a little 4.5 x 4.5 inch plate which I have made as my entry into 'The Altered Alice' challenge which is Falling Leaves and their true colours.
I have used a digi-image of the Cheshire Cat from The Octopode Factory printed and coloured with Marvey Le Plume alcohol brush markers as the central image. The leaves (Crafty Individuals) are stamped in vintage sepia Versafine ink and coloured with a waterbrush and Distress inks in spiced marmalade, barn door and crushed olive. All images have been trimmed out. The words were printed on the computer on copier paper, coloured and cut out.
The background is a piece of printed card sploshed with Distress staines in the same colours and taken back with a little picket fence Distress Stain. I have used a skeleton leaf stamp (Lavinia) to stamp randomly ink spiced marmalade Distress Ink over the background. All embellishments were then stuck in place as shown.
The background was matted on some worded paper and some brown card after edging with vintage photo Distress Ink. Finishing touches were to apply some green Souffle pen around the leaves and use a black fineliner to accent the shadow under the cat and around the words.
I have used a folding cardboard stand to display made from recycled card and cut out using a sizzix die.
