I'd like to share my DT Card with you -

This is the first time I have even attempted a Sketch and boy
did I find it Challenging!

As the Digi is called "Alice Falling" - as in
"Alice in Wonderland"
I wanted to create a background representative
of a Rabbit hole - not that I ve ever been down one lol!

This is the sketch -

now how was I going to turn that into a Rabbit hole!!?

Using "Berry Pie" Daisy Trail Digi Kit I selected a Background Paper
and  the following items as being representative of the sketch -

these items were resized and arranged as in the Sketch

I then sourced the following items -

I placed the top item over the Sketch and manipulated the 
transparency of the layers to give the feel of a Rabbit Hole.

The other items were added as embellishments
and blended appropriately.

The Sentiment was then added -
love the font looks like it s falling too!

I then hand coloured the lovely Digi using 
Promarkers and Spectrum Noir Alcohol Pens
and fussy cut her out and placed on the Background -
how cool is she!!

Finally I decided to decoupage a further pocket watch
and playing card and add some gems.

The heart card is intentionally upside down as Alice really doesn t
know which way up she is a bit like me lol!

Whilst I did find this Challenging it has given me another skill to use.

I would like to enter this Card into the following Challenges please -
