Alice in Wonderland – We Are All Mad Here

I love Alice in Wonderland but for some reason I have never created a piece with an Alice theme so this is my first but not my last!  This piece was designed for Alpha Stamps.
The overall size of the piece is 8 ½” tall by 5” wide.  The base is chipboard I painted red and then applied a chessboard image.  The box on the top is an ATC Shrine that I turned sideways and covered with sheet moss.
To create the stairway of cards I cut slits into a wooden candlestick and inserted and glued the cards in place.
The rabbit charm is painted with various acrylic paints.
The Arched fairy Door hanging from the bottom of the box opens to reveal a mouse.
On the top of the box Humpty Dumpty is pouring tea into a stack of teacups.  The tea coming from the spout is Glossy Accents.  I spread the Glossy accents on a non-stick craft sheet.  Once dry, I painted it with Caramel Alcohol Ink to give it the color of tea and glued it to the spout of the teapot.  The box is about 1 ½” deep so there is lots of room to create a dimensional scene.
