Alice in Wonderland - Play Date Cafe Color Challenge # 38

Hello to fellow Blog readers.  Today I am featuring the Play Date Cafe Color Challenge. Be sure to visit their blog and play along with us.  The winner of this challenge, will receive a $14 gift certificate from Artistic Outpost, towards the purchase of a stamp plate. 
The designers are featuring Artistic Outpost Stamps
 I am honored to say, that I was asked to be a Guest Designer for Artistic Outpost Stamps.  You can view HERE what the Artistic Outpost designers created for this challenge.
My card, features,  Artistic Outpost " Wonderland Collage " stamp plate.
If you are a lover of 'Alice in Wonderland',  this plate will be very difficult to resisit.
I applied  two techniques:   The green background was done by applying various shades of green Ranger Alcohol Inks on white glossy Cardstock.   I applied Ranger Alcohol inks to Tin/Metal and then embossed with Tim Holtz Texture Fades folders.  Afterwards, I sanded the metal and then applied Ranger Archival Black ink with a sponge..just to give a faux brushed metal look.  

thanks for stopping by

Who could think that a lilac bunny would be so pretty.
I love it, as specially the peace of metal embossing.
