Tuesday Throwdown DT card

If anyone would like to follow my blog you can either click on the 2 red squares next to the 'join' button and then click follow or, copy the link and paste it into your reading list.  For some reason my button has never worked :(

Hi and welcome to our new challenge on Tuesday Throwdown, 'Celebrations'.  Head over to the blog to find all of the details and challenge rules.  I've just joined the fab team at TT so this is my first DT card :)

This weeks sponsor is Milk Coffee who have some fantastic digis in their store.

For my DT project I've used Tiffany in the Wonderland and coloured her with spectrum noir markers.  As it's 'wonderland' I thought she needed a bit of a theme, so I've made the card a teapot and used other elements from Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland stories

I've made my own teapot template, covered it in papers from LOTV, added a lock and key stamp from Kanban Crafts, a Happy Birthday stamp from LOTV and placed an acetate box in the middle of the card for the 'eat me' element, which contains Love Heart sweets.

A little close-up to show some of the detail on the card

I've used a butterfly die from Memory Box and a Marrianne Ivy die in amongst the flowers

Spectrum Noir Markers used:

HAIR - GB8, CT4, GB1, LY3, CT1, LY2
DRESS - BGR3, TB4, 3, 1
TIGHTS - IG9, 7, 4, 2, 1
