Through the looking glass with the caterpillar tag...

I love, love, love Alice in Wonderland!  I even have a pinterest board: Alicia in Wonderland!!  The stamp I used is so old that I no longer know where it came from.  The mushrooms are a Cricut cut from Freshly Picked and I also have the matching embossing folder!  As you can see I ran my white Paper Studio tag through the Big Shot with one of the folders (4 in the set).  I used card stock and some old Creative Memories patterned paper along with glitter paper for the white dots and enamel dots for the dots on the purple mushroom.  The shadow of the cut is black shimmer paper.  This project really sparkles!


. I stamped my caterpillar with Mix'd Media ink and embossed with Judikins Black Detail embossing powder on white card stock.  I colored my caterpillar with Chromatix pens.



The background besides being dry embossed is also embossed with embossing powder.  I dabbed the tag with Anna Griffin purple pigment ink (because it was the closest purple to the mushroom) and inked the edges a little heavier then I went back and sprinkled Bridal embossing tinsel (Ranger?) on the entire tag.  It is really, really sparkly!  Picture two is the best one of the background sparkle. I added some grey bling swirls to carry on the smoke effect from the hookah and added a clock brad.  I also added a couple of Recollections ribbons at the bottom.  Finally, I added some purple fiber and a "looking glass" charm to the top and inked the finished project in Quick Quotes powder puff Feather Gray.
